Business travellers who wish to access this arrangement will have to make an application for an Entry Permission with the One Stop Centre (OSC) via MyEntry in not less than 14 days before departure. The application can also be made by the Sponsor of the business traveller, which refers to a Ministry/Government Agency or company registered in Malaysia/Headquarter of the respective foreign country.
Please obtain the Entry Permission Approval before making further travel arrangements. The decision to approve or reject the application will be made known within three (3) working days upon complete information received by the OSC.
