Visa To Enter Malaysia For Thai National

13 posts in this topic

I have been looking through google and nothing is precise. For a Thai national going by air to Malaysia (unaccompanied) on a one way ticket, will she have any problems? How long can she stay for?

Thanks

Questions by the imigration would be the normal ones if they do ask - "Where will you be staying?" and "How long do you plan to stay?"

Duration stay allowed is 30 days

A Thai female travelling unaccompanied on a single ticket to Malaysia would attract some scrutiny and if a short holiday was stated as the reason for entry she may well be refused on the grounds that she failed to satisfy the authorities of the genuineness of her intentions. Her circumstances in Thailand would be crucial as indeed any sponsorship by a farang who may be there to meet her upon arrival.

She will not be able to fly to malaysia on a one way ticket . She will only be on the plane if she has got a ticket back to thailand within 30 days or to other destination .

Why would that be enforced ? Take an example of someone who wanted to fly to a Malaysian town and travel back overland to Thailand. Why should he or she be refused ?

I know the thought behind it but I think the proximity of the countries might mean a return ticket was not necessary.

Malaysia does not require proof of onward passage as far as I know, especially for Thai’s.

Indians, Nepalese, Bangladeshis and other so called “restricted nationalities" (source countries for foreign workers/illegals) will go through a microscope.

I would not expect any issues, however, if the girl is young and attractive, immigration or customs may ask a few questions to sort out if she has the intention of working as a free-lance prostitute or is a drug mule respectively. Any girl traveling in such circumstances, especially with poor English communication skills, should be prepared to expect such questioning so they do not become flustered or (worse) reply in anger.

WRONG.

The airline always ask to see a return ticket, or other proof. ALWAYS. My thai gf and I have flown at least 10 times to Singapore and KL. I once asked, knowing that Thai doesn't need a visa. The anwser was not quite clear to me, but something like: if a passenger get turn back, the airline will have to pay a fine, and responsible to fly them back; hence they want to see some onward proof before the airline will allow bording.

I don't think the airlines can legally bar you from flying, however, I am sure that if you insist, I guess (I am really guessing) they might want you to sign something to make sure you will compensate them if the unlikely happens.

Immigration in KUL/SIN have never ask to see a return ticket. However, they usually ask "How long are you staying", even though it is clearly stated in the immigration form.

Correct, my wife before (we got married), my wife was stopped at the immigration counter before she could board an Air Asia flight from Hat Yai to Kuala Lumpur (3 years ago) unless she can provide a return ticket. My wife told them that she will be travelling back to Hat Yai by overnight bus but did not allow her to pass unless she had a return ticket. As for Malaysia I do not think they actually check if you require a return ticket. No problem travelling overland though, but sometimes the thai immigration will question if he/she sees a new passport with no stamps.

Hi,

For Thai Passport holders (Thai nationals), please refer to Visa Requirement section 2.

All ASEAN countries (except Myanmar) do not require Visa to enter Malaysia for social visit for 30 days. Therefore Thai nationals will be given a 30 days stay on arrival for social visit.

One word of advice : Drugs smuggling carries the "mandatory death" penalty. Beware of what you are carrying.

Thai can enter Malaysia as pedestrian, by bicyle, by Bike or by car so its stupid to ask for a return ticket or onward ticket when U leave Thailand by plane.

Maybe the airliner want to fill there pockets.

I repeat once again.

All ASEAN countries (except Myanmar) do not require Visa to enter Malaysia for social visit for 30 days. Therefore Thai nationals will be given a 30 days stay on arrival for social visit.

One word of advice : Drugs smuggling carries the "mandatory death" penalty. Beware of what you are carrying.

Have a nice trip.

Latest update : Last time - for China and India Passport holders, they were given 14 days for social visit on arrival.

Now they must have a visa before they are allowed to get in.

The reason is this. At present there are thousands from China (China dolls) who came and have not return after the 14 days stay.

When I was Genting Highlands, I was told that there are easily a thousand of China tourists and also from India visiting Genting daily.

There were on group tours and visas were needed.

At the same time I saw some Thai visitors. No visa needed. 30 days will be given. No problem.

Mai mee pan ha ! Sawatdi, krap !
