I am an Indian who is planning to travel to Vietnam in January 2018. I am travelling with Air Asia from Mumbai with a layover in Kuala Lumpur for 5 hours. Do I need a transit visa for this? The flights from both destinations (BOM-KUL and KUL-SGN) are with Air Asia.
If you're not
holding a visa or a residence permit issued by Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan or the United States, and are departing to or arriving from these countries.
Then you'll need a transit visa.
TWOV (Transit Without Visa):
- Nationals of Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka who reside in country of nationality transiting through Kuala Lumpur (KUL) with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 24 hours. They must:
- arrive at and depart from the same terminal, and
- stay in the international transit area of the airport, and
- have documents required for the next destination.
