Malaysia is perhaps the most varied country in Asia. If you want, you can escape the busy city and head to the beach or the jungle within just an hour. The country is a mishmash of different cultures, which also means plenty of different kinds of food to try!
If you want to stay in Malaysia for 90 days or less, you do not need a visa. You are however obligated to carry a passport that is still valid for at least 6 months when you arrive in Malaysia, with at least one empty visa page. Officially you must also be able to present a return ticket or a ticket to your next destination, but this is not often checked.
For more information, please contact the Immigration Department of Malaysia or consulate in your country.

It is wise to get vaccinated against tetanus and hepatitis A before you travel to Malaysia. Depending on where you are going and what you are going to do, you can get a vaccine for yellow fever, cholera, hepatitis B, TB, rabies, Japanese encephalitis, typhoid, or take medicine to prevent malaria (or ask for an emergency set). There are also mosquitoes that transmit other diseases for which there are no vaccinations or medicines. So where you can, make sure to protect yourself against them. Check out the recommendations.
