Tourists from China and India will be granted a 15-day visa-free travel to Malaysia from January 1 to December 31 next year in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2020, according to the Malaysian government.

Tourists may apply through the government's visa application website Electronic Travel Registration and Information (eNTRI). Once registered, tourists can travel to Malaysia within three months. 

Each application can only be used once, and no extension is allowed. Re-application is available for the same short-term visa 45 days after they leave Malaysia.

Malaysia has seen increased arrivals of Chinese and Indian tourists in the first nine months this year, according to Tourism Malaysia director-general Musa Yusof. It received 2.41 million Chinese tourists and nearly 540,000 Indian tourists, an increase of 5.7 percent and 23.2 percent, respectively.
