Malaysia eNTRI Note (Visa Waiver) for Indians experience

Folks,

I thought this might help potential Indian tourists to Malaysia, so sharing my experience on eNTRI Note.

From April 1st 2017 to March 31st 2018, Malaysian Government has announced a Visa Waiver program for Indian nationals going as tourists to Malaysia from India.

There are several conditions to be met before one can apply for eNTRI, so please read the FAQ section for " eNTRI for Indian Nationals " in here : https://www.windowmalaysia.my/evisa/evisa.jsp

Ensure you satisfy all conditions before applying because there is no refund.

Step 1 : Register at the above URL by providing your passport details and create an account.

Step 2 : After email validation, and login choose eNTRI option.

Step 3 : Upload the photo of size 35x50mm, Passport first page Copy, Flight Return Ticket Itinerary, Hotel Accommodation Copy. Ensure this is all exactly as per the instructions.

Step 4: Enter your passport details, local/Malaysia address details.

Step 5: Crop the photo as per spec in the editor (if photo is too close or too long or not white background , then the tool throws up an error, so be patient and do the cropping properly )

Step 6: Make payment

Voila! your eNTRI note is generated instantly. Make sure to print both v2 and v3 versions of the eNTRI note as suggested, and carry along all the specified documents when entering Malaysia.

To top it all, the Visa Fees is waived as well, and only a processing fees of USD 20 is charged.

Unlike the eVisa, you can generate only one eNTRI note per account, so if there are multiple members in your party you will need to create multiple accounts.

Cheers,

Aravind

Rajarajan M,

The FAQ section on the website says that an eNTRI note is valid for 3 months, so the earliest you can apply for one is 3 months before your trip.

Vipul K,

An eNTRI note is valid only for a single entry not exceeding 15 days. This is the link to the information on the eVisa website:

https:/…

The terms and conditions for eNTRI India states that there is a 3-month cooling off period before you can enter again using the visa waiver.

Suhas G,

I disagree with the Live Chat support in this case. The eNTRI condition is clear that you can enter by land from Singapore. It makes no difference that you have just landed in Singapore 2 hours before and head to the border right away, or stay in Singapore for 2 weeks before visiting Malaysia. The three things that may disqualify you are 1) you are residing in Singapore on a long-term pass or permanent residence, or 2) you will be exiting Malaysia to countries not in the list (e.g. Indonesia), or 3) you have previously entered Malaysia with an eNTRI note in the last three months.

One thing to note is the Live Chat support staff are not immigration officers. They are only providing technical support for using the website. Your question is a visa issue, which should be addressed to the immigration department or the embassy/consulate.

By any chance you know how will it affect Indian SPR/LTVP/DP holders. I found the previous arrangement was easier as I always had yearly multiple visit visa for $60 From Mustafa. Now does this means I have to pay for visa every time I wanted to visit M'sia.
