who require a Visa to enter Malaysia must apply and obtain a Visa in advance at Malaysian Representative Office before entering the country. In the UAE, application could be submitted, in person or by a representative, through the Embassy of Malaysia, Abu Dhabi or the Consulate General of Malaysia, Dubai.
