Malaysia is thrilled to welcome Indian travellers once again with new value-driven and action-packed itineraries, such as Genting SkyWorld, the refurbished Sunway Resort in Kuala Lumpur, One and Only Desaru Coast, Malaysia’s Beach Paradise, a luxury resort in Desaru Coast and a magnificent new attraction the Merdeka 118, the world’s second tallest building. 

This April, Malaysia lifted sanction on its border, marking the end of travel restrictions into the country. The entry procedure now requires a RT-PCR test two days before departure and travellers must undergo professionally administered RTK-Ag within 24 hours upon arrival in Malaysia. Currently, Malaysian eVISA can be applied online and more than 11,000 seats are offered weekly between India and Malaysia through Malaysia Airlines, Malindo Air, AirAsia, IndiGo, and Air India Express.

Leveraging this new development, Tourism Malaysia organised its first roadshow to six major cities in India. The roadshows were held in Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Chennai.

“This is the right time to be back in India, and planning for this roadshow is very opportune. The resumption of scheduled international flights from India coincides with the reopening of Malaysia’s international borders,” says Manoharan Periasamy, Senior Director of International Promotion Division (Asia & Africa). 

Razaidi Abd Rahim, Director of Tourism Malaysia (South India & SriLanka) says, “Since the reopening of its borders, India is on the top four arrivals to Malaysia. Malaysia has opened its shores for a quarantine-free travel in April to welcome fully vaccinated international travellers.”
