Immigration Malaysia

Asia and particularly India is known to have tough laws. A famous couple from my country spent sixmonths in jail for not declaring their source of cash they were found in possesion of. Were it not for his popularity, he and his enstranged wife wuld be languishing in jail.

A few months back, students were sentenced to life for purpotedly dealing in drug cartels. How are the Malaysian laws regarding immigrants caught on the wrong side of the law?

Is immigrating to Malaysia such a tough exercise to engage in? What are some of the legal procedures one has to go through?

Malaysia Immigration

Most foreigners are not required a visa when the duration of the visit is less than a period of 1 month with the purpose of business or leisure. The Malaysian Immigration Department will check their passports and other travel documents upon arrival. It is also important for these foreign nationals to follow the conditions and laws governing foreign visits and immigration.

I have the link here, try visiting it..

The idea to not have a VISA as a basic requirement when the duration of visit is not more than a month is a welcome idea. Malaysia should have figured out that indeed this step would lead to more people visiting the country.

The big question is, what are some of the requirements when the period is stay is longer than what you have talked about? What are the stipends for being in Malaysia illegally?

Comment 4
**/**/** **:**

Yes, the idea is to attract more tourists to boosts the country's tourism. However it does not apply to everyone.

I think there are restrictions with regards to that rule. I just do not know the exact details. You can check the link that i provided earlier for the whole details.

Anyway if you are to stay longer then you are required to apply for a visa. simple as that.

**/**/** **:**

There are lots of things that a certain country introduce to boost their tourism. Like that of Malaysia. And so if you are to travel for a vacation for a couple of weeks then try visiting Kuala Lumpur. The fact that you would not be needing a visa is a plus factor.

That is if you are to stay for a short period of time only. Better research more on this matter.

So for those honeymooners, go for some asian experience and try Kuala Lumpur. Without the hassle fo coming up with a visa is a great idea, don't you think?

Here is some sort of brief introduction about Kuala Lumpur:

Over the last few decades, Kuala Lumpur (KL) has been transformed into a thriving metropolis with spectacular buildings like the Petronas Towers (the second highest in the world) and extensive shopping opportunities through mega-large shopping malls. Unlike many Asian cities, Kuala Lumpur still has historical buildings, tranquil spots of nature and a warm cultural heritage.

Any country has its own laws pertaining to immigration or immigrants and they have their strict laws in combating anti social activities like drugs.

Anyone who has plan to visit Malaysia, here's one Web Link to help you.

Well laws are laws. Break them and you are sure that the long arms of law will eventually finds you unless you intentionally evade them by pursuing the life of crime and hiding. That is what laws are for but then again how can there be so many criminals or scumbags out there that have murdered so many people and ruined the lives of so many families and yet remained free and untouchable by society?
Comment 9
**/**/** **:**

I think because authorities have power limitations over the matter. You see, if those people in charge do not do all the things they could possibly do to make those criminals in prison then i think it would be nothing at all.

What we need in this society are strong willed law enforcers that would execute the law by all means, and mot just those uniformed men with no guts.

Maybe you are right there Nicky, but still the public's cooperation is necessary and very important. Think of a situation where a poor, silly guy talks in front of so many that no one bothers to listen. Cooperation is very very very vital.. Nothing can be accomplished with just one member of the group striving to finish a project.

A dedicated law enforcers and a very cooperative public is the key in making crimes a history.

Comment 11
**/**/** **:**

I undestand that Asian countries are fierce on immigration laws, especially pertaining to illegal drugs. They will throw you in the can and forget about you.

Better make sure that you comply with all their laws. Some even have public flogging.

There are great vida web pages around that will inform yiu of everything, just look around the web.

Happy trip!

Comment 15
**/**/** **:**

I think that the reason for this whole discussion is that Asia is still considered as an exotic place to visit, but we really don't have to search so far away for more examples of strict law. Don't you think?
Comment 16
**/**/** **:**

Malaysia seems as though it has quite a lot to deal with already. I would not like to become a burden to the officials of that country, whatsoever. It seems, very much, as though all of them know exactly what they want, and no one can stop them from attaining their goals.
Comment 17
**/**/** **:**

Is this the case of is it something that I have blown out of proportion. It would surely be a pleasure to learn of it a bit more than I already do.
Comment 18
**/**/** **:**

You are right there, some of the Asian countries are strict when it comes to immigration laws. You really would need not to look that far to know some of this strict law enforcing countries.
