This question already has an answer here:
I am a UK national citizen and I am travelling for 5 months through Myanmar, India and finally Indonesia. I have 2 valid passports - an Irish and a UK passport. I have my Myanmar and India visa on my UK passport and my Indonesia visa on my Irish passport. I am at a loss of how I can exit India on my UK passport but enter Indonesia on my Irish passport and whether there is even a way of doing this?!
I will have entered India on my UK passport so must exit on this. I then need to fly to a middle destination such as Kuala Lumpur, Malayasia before flying to Sulawesi in Indonesia. I will need to collect my bags at Kuala Lumpur and re check in so in that sense I will have to clear immigration both ways than just catching a connecting flight.
On entering Malaysia, at this point can i show my Irish passport on entering to get an entry stamp or is this not allowed since I would have technically come into the country on my UK passport as registered by the plane ticket?! I would then exit Kuala Lumpur on my Irish passport and enter Sulawesi on my Irish one?
I am a little confused on what is legal and allowed - please help!
