Know what PM Anwar Ibrahim announced

He further said that it will be subject to security screening. Malaysia has taken this step to promote its tourism industry. Let us tell you that most tourists from India and China come to Malaysia.

Why did Malaysia take such a decision?

Global experts believe that the country is doing this to support economic growth. The economic condition of Malaysia has not been good for some years, and in 2019, the then Muslim Prime Minister had taken such a decision against India, which had created a hindrance in the relations between the two countries. In 2019, the then government of Malaysia supported Pakistan and gave a statement against India in the UN. However, now the present Malaysian government is aware of the importance of India. Therefore, it has given priority to China and India, the two largest countries of Asia. Visa-free entry will be given to Chinese citizens as well as Indians in Malaysia. This information has been given by Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

China also paid tribute to the people of Malaysia

Last month, Anwar announced plans to reform visa processes next year to attract investors and tourists from India and China. China has also given a gift to the Malaysian people. On Friday, China said it would allow people from six countries, including Malaysia, to enter the country without visas. This facility will be applicable from 1st December and will continue till 30th November next year i.e., 2024. Tourists will be able to stay in China without a visa for 15 days.

Like Malaysia, Vietnam can also announce

Recently there has been news in the media that Vietnam can also allow tourists from India to come without a visa. Currently, people from Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Sweden and Finland can come to Vietnam without a visa. It is noteworthy that Thailand has recently started visa-free entry for Indian citizens.

Malaysia Visa on Arrival for Indian Citizens

There is also Visa on Arrival as another option for Malaysian visa for Indian citizens but it is for Indian citizens who are coming to Malaysia from a third country i.e., Singapore and Thailand. Once here, to be eligible for a Malaysian visa, you will need to show a valid visa of the respective countries and also need to show a return ticket to India. If you follow all these conditions then it will be better, easier and cheaper for you to get a Malaysian visa in this way.
