Entry to Malaysia
Many nationalities can stay for one month in Malaysia free of charge on what is called a Social Visit Pass.
Some nationalities such as British nationals can stay for up to 90 days for free.
One of the few exceptions when it comes to the ease with which most people enter Malaysia is Israeli nationals who are often not permitted to visit and need to apply for a visa beforehand from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Although the Social Visit Pass can technically be extended, it is actually much easier to just hop over to a neighboring country and come back in again. Malaysia has land crossings with Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore, and so you will have a range of options depending on where you are in the country.
Overstaying on a Social Visit Pass is severely discouraged, particularly as it is free and easy to obtain and there is a fine of RM30 per day although it is an offense and travelers can be arrested, detained, and deported.
