Travel Tips

IMMIGRATION REQUIREMENTS

Valid passport or travel documents
Any visitor entering Malaysia must possess a valid national passport or international travel document recognized by the Malaysian government. Application for a ‘Document in lieu of Passport’ can be made at any Malaysian representative office abroad.

Valid visa
Foreign nationals who require a visa to enter Malaysia must apply in advance at a Malaysian representative office and obtain the visa prior to entering the country.

CLIMATE
A tropical paradise, Langkawi enjoys temperatures between 26°C and 33°C. While the dry season lasts from late November until early March, the sun rarely stays out of sight for more than a couple of hours even during the rainy period which makes the island a popular destination throughout the year.

HEALTH REGULATIONS
No vaccination typical for other tropical countries is required. However, prior to traveling, do obtain up-to-date information and make sure you have travel insurance.

LANGUAGE
While the official language is Bahasa Malaysia, English is widely spoken so discovering the island, ordering your favorite dish or asking for assistance while shopping presents no challenge.

CREDIT CARDS
International Credit Cards such as American Express, Visa and MasterCard, as well as local bank cards are widely accepted in Langkawi.
