I'm traveling from New Delhi, India, to Bangkok, Thailand via Kuala Lumpur on Malaysia Airlines.

I have stopover and change of planes At KUL airport.

Will I be required to pass through Immigration at KUL airport again or simply board the next flight?

If both your flights are on Malaysia Airlines, you do not need to pass through Immigration, just board your next flight.

  • There is still security though!

  • KUL has security at the gates, but they don't need a visa! Mar 30, 2015 at 21:37
  • No visa, no, but you do need to allow extra time to get through the at-gate security, so it's not quite as simple as "just board"

    No, you don't really need to allow extra time, just show up before the gate closes. If there's a queue at the gate, they're still boarding and you're OK; if there is no queue, you can either waltz in, or you've already missed your flight. Mar 31, 2015 at 0:10

    Having done this recently traveling from Beijing to Krabi, Thailand, I can verify that this answer is correct. And even if you do need to change airlines, the international terminals are mostly connected. My girlfriend and I simply had to pass through a line where they re-checked our tickets before we could enter the departure terminal from the one we landed at. Mar 31, 2015 at 3:20
