Malaysian citizens can travel to Thailand for up to 30 days without needing to apply for a Thai visa. However, for any visits longer than a 30-day period, it is necessary to apply for a Thailand tourist visa.
Applying for a visa for Thailand is about to become a much quicker and smoother process thanks to the new Thai eVisa. The new electronic form of visa application will allow Malaysian citizens and other nationalities to apply for a Thailand tourist visa.
The Thai eVisa for Malaysian citizens process will involve a simple application form and an email confirmation of the approved visa, providing applicants have met the Thai visa requirements.
The release of the Thai eVisa for Malaysians is not yet certain, but as of when the information is available, it will be published on our website which seeks to maintain all visa information up-to-date.
Visa Requirements for Malaysian Citizens
Malaysians who wish to apply for a Thai eVisa should be able to fulfill the following requirements:
- Applicants should be from a country that is eligible for Thai visa application (i.e., Malaysia)
- All traveler’s passports should be valid upon applying for a visa and should also be valid for at least 6 months as of the entry date to Thailand
- The thai visa needs to be paid with a valid credit or debit card online
- An email address is necessary for the visa to be sent electronically
Please note: in the case that the following requirements cannot be met, the Thai eVisa will not be able to be processed correctly and applicants risk the rejection of their Thailand tourist visa.
Visit Thailand from Malaysia with Thailand Tourist Visa
The Thai eVisa enables Malaysian citizens to stay in Thailand for up to 60 days.
The difference between the validity of the Thai eVisa and the Thailand visa on arrival is that the visa on arrival grants travelers 15 days less.
Thailand Visa Application for Malaysian Citizens
Applying for the Thailand tourist visa for Malaysian citizens is a simple application process that enables visa applicants to send off for a Thai visa without having to visit an embassy.
The online visa application form requires Malaysian citizens to fill out their personal details, Malaysian passport details and other information based on your planned trip to Thailand.
The online visa application is a quick application form which can be filled out quickly by applicants. The Thai eVisa process has been designed to speed up the process of obtaining a Thailand tourist visa and is sent to applicants via email once approved.
Once approved and received via email, travelers should prepare for their journey by printing their Thai visa and making sure they travel with both their printed Thai visa and Malaysian passport. Failure to provide these documents at the Thai border could result in travelers being denied entry to Thailand.
