Visa To Malaysia

There are three types of Visas that can be availed by Indians when they visit Malaysia. They are mentioned below:

  • VOA (Visa on arrival)
  • VTR (Visa without reference)
  • VDR (Visa with reference)

In case of VTR or Visa without reference, the approval comes directly from the Consulate General of Malaysia or the High Commission of Malaysia. This type of Visa is approved for business, tourist or social visits.

In case of VDR or Visa with reference, approval comes from the Ministry of Home Affairs or Immigration Department of Malaysia for the purpose of studying, working or social visits that requires an individual to stay for a period that is usually granted under the Visa without reference.

People who want to make an application for a Visa to Malaysia must follow the guidelines properly. All the required documents should be ready with the applicant. Visa to Malaysia can be availed from the application centers in Ahmedabad, Pune, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Bangalore and Hyderabad. If all the documents are ready at the time of Visa application, then the risk of the application being rejected is reduced. Also, this reduces the processing time to a great extent. Under certain cases, the applicant must be present at the High Commission of Malaysia, Delhi (for Chandigarh and Kolkata), Consulate General of Malaysia, Chennai (for Bangalore and Hyderabad), Consulate General of Malaysia, Mumbai (for Pune and Ahmedabad).
