Malaysia will scrap entry visa requirements for citizens of China and India visiting the nation beginning December 1. Chinese and Indian nationals may stay for up to 30 days visa-free.

Malaysia is counting on extra tourist arrivals – and their spending – to support economic growth. Anwar last month announced plans to improve visa facilities next year to encourage the entry of tourists and investors, especially from India and China. Next year, Malaysia will be celebrating 50 years of diplomatic ties with China.

Countries whose nationals already enjoy visa exemptions in Malaysia include Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Iran, Turkey and Jordan. China and India are Malaysia’s fourth and fifth-largest tourism source markets, respectively.

According to government data, Malaysia recorded 9.16 million tourist arrivals between January and June this year, with 498,540 from China and 283,885 from India. That compared to 1.5 million arrivals from China and 354,486 from India in the same period of 2019, prior to the pandemic.
