"Malaysia Opens Its Doors: Visa-Free Entry for Indians and Chinese from December 1, 2023!"

Malaysia Allow Visa Free Entry India

As the holiday season approaches, exciting news awaits travel enthusiasts! Malaysia has declared visa-free entry for citizens of India and China, allowing a delightful 30-day stay starting from December 1, 2023. Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim announced during his speech at the People’s Justice Party congress that we are ushering in a new era of travel possibilities.


Tourist Boom Expected


The visa exemption move comes as Malaysia aims to boost its tourism sector, considering India and China as the fourth and fifth-largest source markets, respectively. Between January and June 2023, Malaysia witnessed a substantial influx of tourists, with 283,885 arrivals from India and 498,540 from China. This promising initiative aligns with neighboring Thailand’s efforts to revitalize its tourism sector by exempting Chinese and Indian nationals, reflecting a regional trend.


Thailand And Sri Lanka Lead The Way


Following suit, Thailand and Sri Lanka have already paved the way for visa-free travel for Indian citizens. Thailand, effective November 10, lifted the visa requirement for Indian travelers, allowing a 30-day stay until May 10 of the following year. Sri Lanka, in a pilot project until March 31, 2024, initiated visa-free entry for visitors from seven countries, including India and China.


Vietnam Contemplates Visa-Free Entry

In an ongoing effort to rejuvenate its tourism industry, Vietnam is now considering visa-free entry for Indian and Chinese citizens. This initiative aims to contribute significantly to the recovery of Vietnam’s tourism sector, which, like many others, has faced challenges due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
