I am a British citizen flying from the UK (Manchester) to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur). I will stay in KL for 4 days, then on to Thailand for 14 days, then back to Malaysia the day before I fly home to the UK.

Will I need a visa to visit Thailand or to regain entry to Malaysia?

  • Seen as though I cant answer because it's on hold. You will not need a visa. You can visit Malaysia 3 months visa free and Thailand 30 days visa free. You are only permitted to visit Thailand twice in a 12 month period, any more you need a visa.

  • @BritishSam The twice per year restriction only applies to land entries

Per TIMATIC, the database used by airlines:


Visa required, except for Passengers with a British passport with nationality British Citizen for a maximum stay of 30 days.


Visa required, except for Passengers with a British passport for a maximum stay of 90 days

So no, you don't need visas.
