Malaysia is such a country where you can experience the best of city life in the capital city Kuala Lumpur along with the authenticity in surrounding areas that are submerged in rich culture. Being an Indian, I enjoyed the climate, the food, and the people around me in Malaysia. This blog is all about how I got my Malaysia visa and what is the Malaysia visa fees for Indians.

Though the Malay government has eased the visa processing with the introduction of e Visa Malaysia, it is not free of cost. A Malaysia visa for Indian citizens starts with INR 1900.

Further, in a bid to increase the number of India and China inbound tourists to Malaysia, the Malay government introduced the eNTRI. The Electronic Travel Registration & Information or eNTRI, which was in fact believed to be a free* Malaysia visa. On the contrary, the processing and convenience charge, which must be paid to the Malay government comes up to INR 1700.

Note: Malaysia visa price list is provided further in the blog.

But the visa fee could not bother me as I got 100% cashback on my visa fee. I applied for my visa through Blinkvisa, and on approval of my visa, they credited the entire visa fee into my Blinkwallet.
