Applicants for a Malaysian visa can now get their stamp in one day – and reduce the risk of fraud, according to the Diamond Palace group of companies. But the cost of doing so will soon rise.


Today Diamond Palace opens a One Stop Center to handle applications for Malaysian visas, which previously were submitted directly to embassy in Yangon.

Speaking at a press conference yesterday, Diamond Palace chair U Thein Than said the current US$6 charge for a work or tourist visa would not change.

However, a service charge set by the embassy will soon be put in place.

“The first month is free of charge for applicants because the embassy will be reviewing our performance. After that they will set a fee,” he said.

Applicants would receive the visa the day after application.

“Our goal is to provide a quick and convenient service that protects users from the fake visa issue,” he said.

The one-stop centre should significantly ease the headache of getting a Malaysian visa, however.

The Malaysian embassy issues only 80 visas a day, but between 200 and 500 applicants a day want tourist visas, U Thein Than said, which had led to concerns about fake visas.

The Myanmar government has officially sent more than 70,000 workers to Malaysia in 2012-2013, rising to 130,000 labourers last year, he said.

The Malaysian embassy says holders of diplomatic and official passports who stay longer than 30 days can apply directly to the Malaysian embassy in Yangon without charge.

The centre is located at 87 Pyay Road.
