I am an Indian Passport holder, working in Jakarta, flying to Tokyo on a holiday, via KL by Malaysia Airlines. I got my MAS tickets separately - Jakarta to KL and KL to Tokyo (hence different PNR nos.)
My question is:
Do I need a transit visa if I stop over for 6 hours in KLIA (but may have to pass immigration, if I don't get a through check in because of two separate PNRs on same Airlines)
Or, is it possible to get a through check in - with my boarding pass for KL-Tokyo sector issued in Jakarta, so that I don't have to pass immigration and just change gates to board the other flight.
There are conflicting information about the TWOV for Indian Passport holders on the net. The Malaysian Embassy in Jakarta are unable to help me - they are not willing to even find out about the transit visa rules. They are only giving me a single entry visa - but I'd need a double entry one, if at all - since I will be coming back to Jakarta the same way.
Any info. will be highly appreciated.
I use Malaysian airlines all the time to travel between INDIA and JAPAN. In case you plan to stay inside the airport for the 6 hour stopover period, you do not need any VISA (transit or otherwise). You should check-in your luggage all the way to Japan (There is no question of "if I don't get a thru checkin". The MH personnel at Indonesia will most likely give you the boarding pass for the second leg (KL-NARITA) also to you. KL airport has enough for you to do for the 6 hours of stopover. almost 2 years agoAnswered by MH_USER via WorldNomads.com
