Effective 15 October 2017, original VAL will not be required to obtain your Single Entry Visa (SEV) from the Malaysian Embassy.
- Students from non-visa required countries such as Commonwealth Countries can proceed to enter Malaysia by producing the eVAL upon arrival. Print your eVAL and offer letter in colour to present to Immigration counter at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) upon arrival. For the complete list of accepted countries, kindly refer to the Visa Application Procedures below.

Please proceed to counter 17 & 18 at Arrival Hall, Level 3 KLIA to obtain VOA stamp. You are required to pay MYR20.00 for fees to obtain your VOA stamp).
