Precautions to Take When Applying for the Visa
One of the inbound and outbound tickets must be Malaysia Airlines / AirAsia. Other cheap flights have the risk of being refused.
If the joint ticket for entry and exit is a Malaysia Airlines / AirAsia ticket, it will not.
- Must have a confirmed endurance ticket to a third / next country.
Interpretation: The destination of the endurance ticket cannot be the country before arriving in Kuala Lumpur. For example, the itinerary is: Singapore → Kuala Lumpur → Singapore. In this case, you cannot apply for a Malaysian transit visa. The endurance ticket needs to be printed in advance.
The passport must be valid for at least 6 months.
- A printed itinerary and original ticket must be presented. If you only show your itinerary number / booking number, you will be refused entry.
Interpretation: The original ticket refers to the ticket itinerary you received. For example, to book an AirAsia ticket, AirAsia will send you an email with a PDF file with the ticket itinerary and flight number, and print it out.
- Hold a valid single entry visa / multiple entry visa for the destination
Interpretation: In the actual application, Malaysian officials only need the Malaysian transit visa applicant to hold a passport valid for at least six months and a flight ticket to a third country.
- Proof that I have sufficient funds to stay in Malaysia
Interpretation: There is no need to worry about this. In most cases, you will not be required to show cash or something unless you are of poor character. . .
