History History

The High Commission of Malaysia in Pakistan was established in 1957, the year in which Malaysia gained its independence. In the early years of its inception, the High Commission of Malaysia was located in Karachi, which was the capital city of Pakistan then. However, in 1968, the High Commission moved to Islamabad after it was declared as the new capital city.


Recognising the importance of Pakistan and Malaysia relations since 1957, the Consulate General of Malaysia in Karachi was instituted in 2004, led by a Consul General.


At the present moment, High Commission of Malaysia has a strength of 11 Home-Based Staff (HBS) and supported by 25 Locally Recruited Staff (LRS). The agencies representing the High Commission are the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defence and Immigration Department of Malaysia.
