Malaysia has stringent laws prohibiting foreigners from working in the country without authorisation and frequently detains or deports illegal workers. Therefore, visitors and expatriates should strictly follow immigration laws and regulations.
All people entering Malaysia must possess valid national passports or other internationally recognised travel documents valid for at least six months beyond the date of entry into Malaysia. UK nationals on social and business purposes can visit Malaysia for up to three months without a visa, with the possibility of a two-month extension.
To stay in the country for longer or to work during your stay, you will need to be studying and have an offer from a university, or a sponsor, usually an employer. As well as the necessary entry visa.
