Useful Information

Malaysia is a peace-loving country that promotes racial and religious diversity. Visitors are advised to respect and experience our colourful culture. General caution is to be practiced at all times for personal and material safety.

Climate & Clothing

Malaysia sits almost on the tropical belt. We enjoy warm weather throughout the year with mild hot and monsoon seasons. As the humidity can be rather high, visitors are advised to be dressed in cool comfortable attire. While visiting cultural or religious places, visitors are advised to adhere to the required dress code. An umbrella is almost always handy to have.

Passport & Visa

Passports should be valid for at least six months after the date of arrival in Malaysia. If travelling to East Malaysia (the states of Sabah and Sarawak in Malaysian Borneo), passports will be inspected. Please check with the Malaysian Consulate in your country for verification on VISA requirements.
