Different Types of Malaysia Visa
Depending on your visit, I’m sure you will be able to cover your stay from one of the below-mentioned categories.
- Malaysia eNTRI Note
- Malaysia Single Entry Visa

These are the most popular visa category which Indian tends to apply for their visit to Malaysia.
Apart from these visa categories, there are few more categories which are not common, but it exists.

- Malaysia Dependent Visa
Let us breakdown each category with its description, procedure, and documentation.
Malaysia eNTRI Note: A most restrictive note with a validity of 90 days allowing an individual to stay 15 days in Malaysia.
For any type of entry, a document is named as a visa, but the Malaysian Government has named this type of document as an eNTRI note.
In other words this document act as a visa, but it is named Malaysia eNTRI note.
Malaysia Single Entry Visa: This is one of the tourist visa categories which we do not recommend any applicant to apply, the reason is this visa allows only a single entry to Malaysia, but the cost that Malaysia Government charges are same as Multiple Entry Visa.
This visa is again valid for 90 days only for a visit with a stay period of a maximum of 30 days single entry in Malaysia.
Malaysia E Visa: This is one of the most popular visa categories, as it does not have any restriction neither, has a different procedure to follow. This type of visa is allowed to enter Malaysia multiple times with a validity of 90 days and stay of 30 days at each entry.
It means you will have to exit the country before the visa expires and before the 30th date of your entry into the Country.
Malaysia Sticker Visa: This type of visa is no longer applied by any applicant in India. Out of 10, not even 1 application opts for a Malaysia sticker visa. A few years back all applicants had to process the Malaysia Sticker visa only, as there was no other option.
Processing sticker visa is a bit tedious process compared to another visa category, as this visa is a completely offline process. Earlier Malaysian Government used to give multiple entries with a validity of 1 year and a maximum of 30 days stay in the Country each time, nowadays the Government gives multiple entries with 90 days validity and 30 days stay or maximum of 180 days validity and 30 days stay for sticker visa too.
So applicants prefer processing E-Visa which is an online process & hassle-free. We will discuss visa costs later in this article.
