Malaysia expedites pass endorsement for eligible Employment Pass and Professional Visit Pass applicants
Effective March 1, certain individuals whose applications to obtain Professional Visit Passes (PVPs) and Employment Passes (Category III, EPIII) were approved and who are outside Malaysia may collect their Pass stickers at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 1 (KLIA1) upon arrival. Previously, individuals could not access the eVISA portal from within Singapore, Israel or North Korea and were thus unable to submit online MEV and SEV applications from these countries.
