Malaysia Visa Requirements for Germany Citizens

Updated: May 14, 2024

Germany is a famous country in Europe. Many German people like visiting Malaysia for their vacations. Malaysia has pretty beaches, fun cities, good food, and amiable people.

Now it is easy for German citizens to visit Malaysia. They can apply for an "e-Visa" on the computer. This electronic visa permits German passport holders to visit Malaysia without going to the embassy.

What is the Malaysia e-Visa?

The Malaysia e-Visa is a travel paper that you may get on the internet. It allows German citizens to enter Malaysia one time. You can stay for up to 03 months on this visa. The e-visa is good for 3 months from when you get it.

So German people need to apply for a Malaysia e visa before coming to Malaysia.

Currently, Malaysian e visas available to German nationals encompass four categories:

  • Tourist eVisa (Single Entry for 30 days)
  • Student eVisa (Single Entry for 03 months)
  • Expatriate eVisa (Single Entry valid for 03 months)
  • Medical eVisa (Single Entry valid for 03 months)

When applying for a Malaysia e visa, you are required to send us a passport photo. Any size is acceptable. It just needs to show your face clearly.

Get Malaysia Visa Approval

It takes about 05-07 days to get approved for the Malaysia e-Visa. You can check your visa status online while you wait. When approved, you will get the visa by email in PDF format.

You need to email clear scans of these documents when applying for Malaysia e-Visa:

  • Passport page with your photo and information. The passport used during the visa application must be valid for at least six months from arrival. There should be 02 blank visa pages for verification stamps, too.

Some key travel tips for German citizens visiting Malaysia:

  1. When entering Sabah and Sarawak states from peninsular Malaysia, you'll need to show your passport again.
  2. Carry some extra cash, and don't rely entirely on cards. Many smaller shops and restaurants are cash-only.
  3. Dress modestly when visiting places of worship - cover shoulders and legs. Malaysia is a predominantly Muslim country.
  4. Expect accommodation to be a bit more expensive than in neighboring countries, but transport and food are very affordable.
  5. English is widely spoken in central cities and tourist areas, but you should learn some basic Malay phrases.
  6. Drink bottled water only and be careful with street food.
  7. Get travel insurance and check if you need vaccinations - visit a tropical medical institute if possible.
