Visitors from Myanmar

When visiting Malaysia from Myanmar, it is important to be sure to follow all of the legal guidelines as laid out by both countries. If you are planning a trip to Malaysia from Myanmar anytime soon, be sure to follow the guidelines below.

Required Documents

Travellers coming from Myanmar are exempt from having a visa if their stay is under 30 days and they hold a legal Myanmar passport. If the stay is more than 30 day, a visa will be required, and may be conditional upon your arrival. Be sure to clear this beforehand so there are no problems or major delays in your trip.

Remember to always bring:

  • Your passport. Your name as written on your passport should always match the name you are identified as on your visa, or any other documents you are bringing to identify yourself. Minors may be required to show a passport and/or birth certificate. It is important to check the latest rules online, as they change constantly.
  • Any identification you have.
  • If you are staying longer than 30 days, you are required to prove that you have sufficient funds to cover your stay in Malaysia past the 30 days. This means having at least 3,000 Malaysian Ringgit.
