New Transit visa rules through Malaysia

by on October 8, 2016
 

Malindo Air passengers holding passports from  Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are now eligible for Transit Without Visa facility for 120 hours/5 days when passing through Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) enroute to a third country.

To ensure approval of Transit Without Visa facility

With immediate effect, the Transit Without Visa will be available for 120 hours/5 days for eligible passengers.

There are a number of conditions to be met:

  • Passenger must enter/exit via Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA)
  • The travel document should be valid for more than six (6) months from the date of entry
  • Passengers must have obtained a Single Entry Visa (SEV) / Multiple Entry Visa (MEV) to the intended third destination e.g. Australia, United States of America, China, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand or Taiwan
  • Passengers must hold a confirmed ticket to the third destination

Should you need further information, you are advised to contact your local Malaysian Consulate Office or call the Chief of Operation Unit at 603-87769072.

This announcement extends this facility to Malindo Air passengers, equivalent to that given to passengers on Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia.

Malindo Air flies daily to Colombo, Dhaka and Lahore and to six cities across India.

      You seem to meet the conditions for the transit visa.
      1. Passenger must enter/exit via Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) (The terminals are part of the same airport, but they are separate buildings. There is a free shuttle bus on Level 1 , or if you have a credit card/Malaysian money, the fastest way is by KLIA ekspres train from Level 2. The cost is 2 Malaysian Ringgit.)
      2. The travel document should be valid for more than six (6) months from the date of entry
      3. Passengers must have obtained a Single Entry Visa (SEV) / Multiple Entry Visa (MEV) to the intended third destination e.g. Australia, United States of America, China, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand or Taiwan (If you have a Pakistan passport, you will be fine.)
      4. Passengers must hold a confirmed ticket to the third destination (Make sure your onward ticket to Bangkok and Lahore is confirmed. I suggest you check-in online before you leave Beijing for your Bangkok Airways flights if this is possible. Make sure you have the boarding pass/es to show.)
