I am an Indian Citizen travelling to Thailand. On my way back I have 12 hrs of layover (with same airline & PNR) in Kuala Lumpur. Needed to check if I can step out of the airport? If yes, then what are requirements in terms of visa/travel pass?

For Malaysia, if you want to leave the airport, you will need a visa


Passengers 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.

But you qualify for an e-visa as an Indian national.

For an RM 105 fee (around 25USD at the time of posting) and reported 6 days for processing, but with reports of it being extremely unreliable, make sure to get it early
