Malaysian Visa for Chinese Residents

To enter the country, Chinese residents visiting Malaysia need a visa. Nonetheless, having a Malaysia Visa for Chinese residents online has been conceivable since 2017. Malaysia visa policy is a set of regulations that determine the requirements that a citizen of another country must meet to obtain a Malaysian visa.

Chinese visa types

A Malaysian visa can be issued either through an embassy or consulate or through a simple online application process. The Immigration Department of Malaysia does not provide a visa at the time of arrival. Therefore, all foreign nationals seeking a Malaysian visa are expected to obtain a pre-departure visa, whether it is a government visa or an electronic visa (eVisa).

As it is more appropriate and quicker than applying for a visa at an embassy, most travelers who can obtain a visa online can access this option.
