The Malaysia government has announced visa-free entry for the citizens from India and China to promote the tourism in the country.

According to the program, the citizens from China and India can enter Malaysia without visa and stay in the country for up to 30 days.

This rule is said to be effective from December 1.

According to news agency Reuters, Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim made the announcement in his address to the annual congress of the People's Justice Party on Sunday night. However, he did not reveal how long this rule will remain effective.

According to statistics maintained by the government data, from January to June this year, 9.9 million 16 thousand tourists came to Malaysia, of which 498 thousand were Chinese and 284 thousand were Indian citizens.

However, in the same period of 2019 before the pandemic, 1.5 million people from China and 3.54 million people from India visited Malaysia.

Now Malaysia has geared up for increasing the number of foreign tourists.

Meanwhile, Thailand has launched visa-free entry for citizens from India and China in a bid to promote the country’s tourism.
