Visa Requirement

 

Bangladesh nationals who wish to travel to Malaysia on a regular Bangladesh passport require a visa to enter Malaysia and permitted to stay not more than 30 days.

                                                                                                                                                    

Visa exemption is given to Bangladesh diplomatic or official passports on reciprocal basis for a social visit purpose pursuant to the Bilateral Agreement between the Government of Malaysia and Bangladesh on the Partial Abolition of Visa Requirement for Holders of Diplomatic and Official Passports dated 2014. The visit pass is issued on arrival in Malaysia for a stay of not exceeding 30 days. However, visa is still required in the case where visitor is going for other than social visit purpose such as for studies or to undertake work or training programs in Malaysia.
