DUBAI, Sept 28 (Bernama) — Visa-on-arrival (VOA) issuance at Malaysian entry checkpoints can now be considered to citizens of Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka living abroad, if they hold certain types of documents.

According to Tourism Malaysia’s office in Dubai, such documents included a valid permanent residence, expatriate pass, dependant pass, student pass and long-term visit pass from other countries.

“VOA issuance can also be considered to citizens of Afghanistan if they hold diplomatic or official passport,” it said.

A fee of RM330 will be charged for the VOA which is valid for a maximum of 14 days.

VOA is issued at these entry checkpoints — KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang; Penang International Airport; Senai International Airport in Johor; Kuching International Airport in Sarawak and Kota Kinabalu International Airport in Sabah.

The service is also available at the Sultan Abu Bakar Complex (Second Link) in Tanjung Kupang and Bangunan Sultan Iskandar in Bukit Chagar, both in Johor.

    The information of Vietnam visa requirements will help everyone to better prepare the trip to Vietnam. The immigration regulation of Vietnam requires a valid passport and a visa are required of all foreigners visiting Vietnam. Vietnam Visas are issued by Vietnamese embassies and consulates or Vietnam Department of Immigration. Some overseas offices of Vietnamtourism and Vietnam Airlines are able to issue tourist visas.
    Processing time vary from country to country and usually take between 2-5 business days to complete. Fees for visa also vary and most embassies require applicants to contact them directly to check the most updated fee. You will also need to pay for the prepaid courier if you do not plan to pick up the visa in person.

    Tourist visas are good for thirty or ninety days and may be extended after your arrival in Vietnam. Those planning to leave and come back to Vietnam can apply for a multiple entry visa. You are required to state your intended ports of arrival and departure (for example, arriving in Hanoi and departing from Ho Chi Minh City) and an anticipated date of travel. Submit your application along with two standard passport photos, your passport and the required fee.

    Another option is to pre-arrange a visa on arrival. This can be done online via a number of private companies who have agreements with the Vietnamese government to collect passport details and arrange for an “approval letter”. This letter allows you to board a flight into Vietnam and you will receive the visa stamp upon entry to Vietnam Airport. These agencies charge a small fee for their service and in most case, the total works out to be equal or less than the amount charged by Vietnamese embassies and consulates. It must also be noted that visa-on-arrival works only for visitors arriving in Vietnam by air.

    Business visas require similar documentation to tourist visa. If you apply through Vietnamese embassy, you will need to submit a sponsorship letter by a licensed Vietnamese company but this is not required if you apply for visa-on-arrival. This letter can come from your trade partner or your employer.
