Malaysia has decided to grant a 30-day visa-free entry for Indian and Chinese citizens from December 1. It was declared by Malaysia Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim on Sunday.
Anwar made the announcement late on Sunday during a speech at his People’s Justice Party congress.
Earlier Thailand and Sri Lanka offered similar visa-free entry to Indians to promote tourism.
Earlier Malaysia was providing visa exemptions to citizens of Gulf nations and other West Asian countries, including Turkiye and Jordan.
Between January and June this year, 283,885 Indians visited Malaysia.
At present, Indian and Chinese nationals must apply for visas to enter Malaysia.
