Indians Don’t Need Visa For Malaysia Beginning December 1

New Delhi: Malaysia has declared that they will scrap entry visa requirements for citizens of India visiting the nation beginning 1 December, according to Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

The nation is looking to boost its tourism industry and Indians and Chinese form the largest chunk of tourists all over the world.

Indian nationals may stay for up to 30 days visa-free in Malaysia, Anwar said in a speech at his People’s Justice Party’s annual congress in Putrajaya on Sunday. This would be subject to security screening, he added.

The Southeast Asian country is counting on extra tourist arrivals and their spending to support economic growth. Last month Anwar announced plans to improve visa facilities next year to encourage the entry of tourists and investors, “especially from India and China.”

Vietnam is also considering visa-free entry for Indians and Chinese people.

Last month, Thailand also announced that the government will allow visa-free entry for tourists from India and Taiwan for a period of six months from November 10 this year to May 10, 2024.

“We will provide visa-free entry to India and Taiwan because a lot of their people like to travel to Thailand,” Thai Prime Minister Srettha Thavision was quoted as saying by news agency AFP.
