Travel Visa Requirements & Safety

This guide outlines the Malaysia visa requirements for United States citizens. Travelers holding a U.S. Passport do not require an advance visa to visit Malaysia. Americans are permitted stays of up to 90 days, for tourism or business. Stays of longer than 90 days will require the traveler to request an extension at the Immigration Department in Malaysia. The maximum additional time permitted as part of an extension is two months.

Travelers who overstay their permitted time may be subject to fines or detention. Dual nationals attempting to enter or exit Malaysia should read these warnings from the U.S. Department of State.

Entry into Malaysia using the visa exception for United States citizens requires the following:

  • A valid passport with at least six months of validity beyond the date of entry.
