Malaysia visa & entry requirements

Malaysia visa information

Citizens of the UK, most EU countries, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States do not require a visa to visit Malaysia for a stay of up to three months.

Notable exceptions are citizens from Greece & Portugal who can stay visa-free for up to one month only. 

All other nationalities should check with the Malaysian Embassy in their country of residence or with their Selective Asia consultant. You will need one clear page in your passport, which must be valid for at least another six months after your return.

Entry & Covid-19 testing requirements.

The following information is based on each adult traveller being full vaccinated. The vaccination requirements for children vary (and change continuously) however we can advise on this. For unvaccinated travellers the entry requirements are far more prohibitive and in many cases not possible at all – please check the (or your home country’s equivalent) website for full details.
