Malaysia’s Mandatory Digital Arrival Card Implementation Delayed to January 2024

Kuala Lumpur International Airport

The Malaysian government has postponed the mandatory implementation of the Digital Arrival Card (MDAC) for entry into the country to January 1, 2024.

All foreign travelers, except for Malaysian Permanent Residents, MACS (Malaysia Automated Clearance System) holders, and a few others, are subject to this requirement. Registration can be done online from three days before departure. Travelers are required to fill in details such as passport information, arrival date, departure date, and the purpose of stay.

Originally, it was mandated to start on December 1st, and until December 7th, departure was possible without registration. However, starting from December 8th, travelers would be required to register prior to departure.
