Malaysia: No More Visa-On-Arrivals


While I’ll reading a local news paper at the lobby of the hotel that we’re stayed in I’ll notice this news article, and I thought it worth sharing to the backpacker’s like me. It says;

No more visa-on-arrival from Aug 16

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is to abolish the visa-on-arrival (VOA) facility effective Monday, Immigration director-general Datuk Abdul Rahman Othman announced Friday.
As such, all foreign nationals requiring a visa to enter the country must apply for it at the offices of Malaysian missions overseas, he said in a statement.
He said the Cabinet Committee on Foreign Workers and Illegal Immigrants decided that the VOA facility granted to the nationals of several countries be abolished.
“The VOA facility is being abolished because it has been misused and this has had a negative effect on Malaysia,” he said.
Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had announced early this month that the VOA would no longer be issued at the country’s points of entry as there had been gross misuse of the facility. – Bernama
