Found this on Noonsite today.
Yacht crews heading to Thailand
from Langkawi will not be issued 90 day (or for some nationalities,30 day) tourist visas on their return to Malaysia
, unless they have been 'away' for at least seven days. It is not known whether these new regulations
will soon apply throughout Malaysia
, but for now it seems likely that they are restricted to Langkawi.
Last updated March 2018.
Anyone in Langkawi or other ports
of Malaysia encounter this yet?
My plan was to come to Langkawi and take ferry
to Satun to renew visa. Now it looks like I will have to stay in Satun 7 nights to get a renewal.
It is looking like a 2 year visa would be better to get. Costs?
Also Langkawi requests 3rd party insurance
. Any suggestions.
Thanks so much.
