We refer to the announcement made by the Immigration Department of Malaysia on 28 October 2021. Kindly note that with effect from 1 November 2021, MYEntry will no longer be applicable to expatriates holding long-term passes who are entering, leaving and returning to Malaysia, provided that they have a valid pass.
