Foreign Embassies & High Commissions
Last Updated ( Thursday, 23 August 2018 )

The following is a list and contact details of foreign diplomatic missions in Malaysia. Malaysians might get confused with the difference between Embassy and High Commission

Embassy is the general term for a permanent diplomatic mission, usually located in the capital of the country, in this case, in Kuala Lumpur.

High Commission is a term used by missions from a Commonwealth country, e.g. the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, etc.

In general, there is no difference in function between an Embassy and a High Commission.

A consulate or consulate general is generally a representative of the country located in a city other than the capital.

Visa Requirement for Malaysian Citizens
Last Updated ( Sunday, 19 August 2018 )

Malaysians are really a lucky lot. The Malaysian passport is considered one of the best in the world. According the the Henley Passport Index for the year 2018, the Malaysian pasport is ranked number 9 in the world, with visa-free access to 180 countries.

This makes travel planning a lot easier for Malaysians going overseas. Most countries however still require a minimum of 6 months validity, in addition to other requirements such as having sufficient funds, a return flight ticket, proper health vaccination, and others and entry is at the discretion of the immigration officer.

The Malaysian passport is valid for all countries in the world, except for Israel, to which Malaysia does not have a diplomatic relation with. However, visit to Israel is possible, but mainly for Christians on a pilgrimage and requires the approval of the government of Malaysia.

Additionally, since September 2017, Malaysians have been banned from travelling to North Korea.
