India visa in Kuala Lumpur

Hi everyone! Looking for latest, reliable info on whether I can get an Indian visa in Kuala Lumpur or not at this time. Holding a German passport, am travelling around Asia right now and have a flight already scheduled to KL but now, checking the net, it seems there is no way to obtain a visa for India in KL anymore. It also seems unclear if I can get one in BKK. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there,

As far as I'm aware, the general rule is that you have to be a resident in Malaysia if you want to apply for the visa in Kuala Lumpur. You can however try to double confirm this directly with the company which manages Indian visa applications in Kuala Lumpur. Their email address is:


Based on my own experience, their response time is very good. Emails replied same day/ within a day. Visa received in one working day.

From the official website it appears you have to be a resident in Malaysia in order to apply for a visa in the Indian High Commision in Kuala Lumpur.


E-mail or call the High Commission to find out for sure as suggested above.

When I applied for my Indian visa last October, I saw a few tourists who were applying for theirs. So unless rules have changed.

If you are able to apply for it, do not expect it to be ready in under 5 days (I got mine after a week; hubby got his after 2 weeks). Only Malaysians get theirs processed in under 2 days.

Hi. Have to agree with JulesB66. I also applied for Indian visa end of last year and February this year and saw many foreigners applying for theirs. I applied through the Grandlotus India Visa Centre KL though. Near Central Market-Merdeka Square area with 7-11 store right next door. Good Luck.
