The eVISA is an electronic travel authorization issued by the Malaysian Government. While the eVISA is equivalent to a visa, no label or stamp is placed in a traveler’s passport. The eVISA is required to enter or travel within Malaysia.
Visitors entering Malaysia for tourism are required to present a valid eVISA at the port of entry.
