Planning for a trip from India to Thailand through Kuala Lumpur, the connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur is after 20 hours. Do we need a Malaysian visa for this time frame, if we need to get out of the airport ?
Just returned from the trip. I could not get Malaysian transit visa. There are a list of countires, whose visa if we have, then the transit visa will be given to us. We had to spend time inside the KL airport until our flight to Thailand.
