Corporate Immigration — Malaysia’s 30-day visa-free entry for Chinese and Indian visitors
The Malaysian government has unveiled a pivotal update to its immigration policy, granting a 30-day visa-free entry to visitors from China and India.
Who will be affected?
Citizens of China and India visiting Malaysia
This announcement by the Malaysian prime minister aligns with the upcoming celebration of the 50-year strategic partnership between Malaysia and China.
