More Chinese tourists are expected to travel in Malaysia after the government of Malaysia introduced a visa exemption and e-visa programme with the aim of facilitating China tourists traveling to her country.
According to the Malaysia government, the e-Visa system is the key initiative to help accomplish the goal of further expanding and developing the tourism industries of both Malaysia and China.
In a report from a Travel Daily News, the e-Visa system will be carried out in three phases starting with Chinese nationals residing in Mainland China, followed by the second phase that includes Chinese nationals residing outside Mainland China, and eventually with the final phase, which incorporates other countries such as India, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
Notably, the e-Visa is for the purpose of travelling and visiting relatives and friends only, with the length of stay limited to 30 days and for a single entry to Malaysia within three months from the date of issuance of the e-Visa.
The government of Malaysia also declared a visa free entry for Chinese tourists staying in Malaysia for a period not exceeding 15 days, subject to certain conditions. This effectiveness of this announcement started from 1st March and will end at 31st Dec, 2016.
The Chinese tourists can now visit www.windowmalaysia.my/evisa, the official website for Malaysian e-Visa application, to submit relevant documents, pay a processing fee of USD 25 and print the e-visa on their own. Applicants will be alerted via email on their visa approval within 24 hours during working days.
