I’m Sri Lankan passport holder. I’m planning to travel from Japan to Sri Lanka via Malaysia by March 2020. Still I have valid Japan student visa until July 2020. Do I need transit visa for Malaysia when I travel with AirAsia.

  • Did you book your flights as a single ticket? And if not, are you planning to bring hold luggage?

Transit Visa: The Transit Visa is issued to foreign nationals who require a visa to enter Malaysia on transit to other countries. Foreign nationals on transit without leaving the airport premises and who continue their journey to the next destination with the same flight do not require a transit visa.

TWoV (Transit without Visa) The Transit Without Visa (TWOV) is only applicable after clearing Malaysian Immigration – for a maximum of 120 hours stop-over in Malaysia. However, granting Transit Without Visa (TWOV) is solely at the discretion of the Malaysian Immigration; even if guest(s) meet all the required criteria.
