Malaysia Visa check your qualification here
Malaysia in comparison to many countries around the world is a very friendly country.
The people here are warm and hospitable and it is in their culture to treat their guests with respect and accord them every comfort possible. Not surprisingly, the World Tourism Organization reported that Malaysia saw the arrival of 23.6 million tourists in 2009 and this number is still increasing. In fact, Malaysia is ranked as the ninth (9) most visited country in the world.
Another factor which helps to contribute to the high traffic volume of tourists coming to Malaysia is that most visitors do not need to apply for a Malaysia Visa when visiting this country.
There are some exceptions where visitors from certain countries are required to apply for a Malaysia visa prior to entry.
