All VISA questions - please read here FIRST!!!

Questions about Visas are one of the most common posts on this forum. A lot of time goes into answering these questions so that people don't feel ignored, but please remember we are volunteers.

Your first enquiry should be with the Malaysian embassy in your own country. However, if you wish to obtain an opinion from the general public, you will find a lot of the information is already here.

There is a link in the "Top questions about Malaysia" which covers this topic, but as these top questions do not show up on the mobile platform, we have gone one step further to help you and will repeat it here:

I have lodged a request with TA Support to make this sticky so that it stays at the top of the forum :)

Thanks TN007, I wanted to do this but ended up writing a very detailed post in my computer, not quite sure how that would work haha. Hope this post will help clear up the visa questions and keep the number of new posts to a minimum.

Thank you Josh and TN007.

1. A lot has been said of the inefficiences of the mobile app, but nothing seems to have been made to improve the experience. Even forum links cannot be copied. Checking it up with TA support.

2. Regarding visa queries, I have observed most of the ones are first time users of TA who get redirected here from Google searches and then out of hurry, they fail to do a thorough search of whether this has been asked before and end up posting same queries again.

Exotic V,

Please contact your visa agent or the embassy/consulate.

Might be too late to fix it at this time as it is the weekend. The lesson is don't leave it too late to apply for a visa.

Thanks TN007

Totally agree with you that these questions are best answered by the respective embassy or consulate. I have always found these questions awkward as the small intricacies involved in Visas is crucial and I would not want my advice to jeopardise anyone's travel. Well done
