Good News - No Need for White Immigration Cards at Malaysian Checkpoints from 1st Jun 2012


Secretary-general of Malaysia’s Home Ministry, Tan Sri Mahmood Adam, announced on 20 May 2012 that, with effect from 1st Jun 2012, foreigners entering Malaysia need not fill the white arrival cards to enter Malaysia.

This should mean quicker clearances at the immigration checkpoints for trips to Johor's famous makan places J

    According this Bernama report its refers to "foreigners" - taken at face value that means all nationalities? The report also gave a tel number 1-800-22-6969 and email pro@imi.gov.my for people seeking clarification.

    We'll all know on 1st Jun ;D
