Did you know that Malaysia has one of the most hassle-free tourist visa procedures in all of Asia, with most visitors being granted a free 30-to-90 day Social Visit Pass on arrival. Compare that to virtually every other country in the region, which are not only stricter with the time they grant travellers, but also more costly.
For the vast majority of visitors to Malaysia, such a generous allotment of days in their visa means never having to deal with the Immigration and should you wish to extend your Social Visit Pass — they can in theory be extended twice, for 30 days at a time by going to the nearest Immigration Depart of Malaysia.
