eNTRI Visa

The Malaysian country has offered residents of China the opportunity to acquire a Malaysia eVisa when touring the country. Chinese citizens can apply for this permit if they visit Malaysia for tourism. They can complete the application online, avoiding the need to visit a Malaysian embassy or consulate.

eNTRIs are Single-Entry Visas that provide Chinese citizens with the opportunity to travel to Malaysia for a single purpose and for a maximum of 15 days for each stay, without the possibility to extend the validity of the visa. The validity of eNTRIs for Chinese residents is limited to one journey for a tour in Malaysia.

Definitional Terms to Obtain ENTRI Visa

The electronic national transit visa (eNTRI) is a type of visa issued for the purpose of travelling or visiting tourism in Malaysia as a part of the country's visa waiver program. It can only be obtained by nationals of China, Macao and Hong Kong who hold a valid passport.

  • eNTRI Notes are valid for a period of no more than 15 days for a single trip (to Malaysia).
  • Applicants are required to travel to Malaysia within a period of three months from the date of issue of eNTRIs in order to benefit from the eNTRIs issued to them. The eNTRIs remain valid for a period of ninety days (or three months).
  • If you're a PRC passport holder, you'll need to make sure your passport is at least 6 months old if you want to apply for eNTRIs. You'll also need to take the most recent colour photo in your passport size.
  • When you get to Malaysia, you'll need to take a copy of what you've shown to the authorities with your eNTRI Visa Note.
  • These are the only entry and exit points for Malaysian eNTRIs in Malaysia.

Can Chinese passport holders obtain a Malaysian tourist visa?

The Malaysian tourist visa is a travel document issued to Chinese citizens who hold a valid Chinese passport. It permits Chinese citizens to enter and leave Malaysia for a maximum of 30 days. This single-entry visa can be used to travel to and from Malaysia at any of the country's designated entry points. This new visa policy was implemented by the Malaysia Immigration Department in 2016 with the aim of facilitating the travel of Chinese tourists to Malaysia.

Malaysia's eVisa Requirements for China

In order to comply with Malaysia's eVisa requirements for Chinese citizens, applicants must submit a valid Chinese passport with an expiration date of six months or more, the most recent passport-size photograph of the applicant, a valid payment method for the visa application fee, confirmation of accommodation accommodations in Malaysia, and proof of travel back to China, as well as a birth certificate.

Chinese citizens who intend to remain in Malaysia for a period of more than thirty consecutive days should contact their nearest Malaysian Embassy or consulate to find out which visa to apply for. This applies to all Chinese travellers who require a multiregular visa for Malaysia, as well as to those travelling for non-tourism purposes.

  • - Proof of sufficient funds for the entire stay in Malaysia
  • - Immigration officials could ask for this extra information to double-check their validity.
