There are new requirements for almost all visitors to Malaysia. 

All foreign travellers must complete the Malaysia Digital Arrival Card (MDAC) within three days prior to their scheduled arrival in Malaysia.  

The change came into place on January 1. 

The new requirement does not apply to certain travellers, including Singapore citizens, holders of Diplomatic and Official Passports, Malaysian permanent residents (PR) and Long-Term Pass holders, Brunei Common Certificate of Identification (GCI) holders, Brunei-Malaysia Frequent Traveller Facility holders, Thailand Border Pass holders, and Indonesian Cross Border Pass (PLB) holders. 

Steps required: 

  • Step 1: Fill up the Malaysia Digital Arrival Card (MDAC) here (link) 
  • Step 2: Submit the MDAC within three days prior to your arrival to Malaysia. Proof of submission will be sent to your registered email. 
  • Step 3: Upon arrival in Malaysia, simply proceed to the Immigration counters with your proof of submission. 

For further information, visitors should head to the Malaysian immigration website (link), or speak to their travel agent.
