I'm a Sri Lankan passport holder. I'm planning to travel to China in January and have to transit in Malaysia. I wonder whether I can obtain a Malaysian transit visa in KLIA 2 when I'm flying back to Sri Lanka.
Can I obtain a Malaysian transit visa in KLIA when I'm flying back to Sri Lanka?
Actually if have you a valid visa from China and you intend to transit in Kuala Lumpur, any airport, yes you can stay up to 120 hours, provided the transit time is longer than 8 hours and travel only with Malaysian Airline or AirAsia.
