Malaysia is a beautiful Southeast Asian country where people from all over the world visit every year during their holidays. The place with its beautiful beaches, tall buildings, hill stations, caves, temples and streets is a true representative of the Asian continent.
Be it Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Genting Highlands, Cameron Highlands or any other place, you would definitely have a great time here. However, if you are planning to go to this incredible country, you need to know whether you require any travel documents, especially a visa. If you are a South African passport holder working or living in UAE, you have some good news. You do not need a visa to visit Malaysia and stay there for 90 days i.e. three months. Yes, this is true! You do not have to waste your precious time filling application forms, arranging all the documents, visiting the Embassy, etc. You just have to book your tickets, hop on to a plane and have a great time in the awesome city of Malaysia.
Nevertheless, there are some things that you have to take care of apart from planning your Malaysian holiday itinerary. You need to have a valid South African passport while travelling to Malaysia. A temporary passport may not be accepted. You must check with your travel agent about this. Make sure your passport does not expire before you plan to return from Malaysia. Another thing you need to check is whether your passport has a few blank pages.
It is possible that you may not get a direct flight to Malaysia from the UAE. In such case, you need to check whether you need a transit visa for going through the countries you would be stopping over at. Again, your travel agent can help you with this.
As South African passport holders living in the UAE do not require a travel visa to Malaysia, travelling to this country becomes hassle free. So, do not think too much. Book your tickets to Malaysia and fly to this amazing country for this year’s holiday!
