Passenger Service Charge (PSC) (formerly known as ‘Airport Tax’) is paid by departing passengers. At our airports, the PSC is collected by the respective airlines upon purchase of tickets and is only paid to Malaysia Airports upon completion of the flight.
Unused flight tickets are eligible for a full refund for the PSC from the respective airlines.
The charges (inclusive of PSSC*) are as follows:
|PASSENGER SERVICE CHARGE, WITH EFFECT FROM 1 JULY 2018|

All stated PSCs are inclusive of Passenger Security Service Charge (PSSC) component at RM6 (international) and RM3 (domestic).
The PSSC will be collected together as part of the cost of ticket, similar to the current PSC collection procedure.

REMOVE ALL ELECTRONIC DEVICES FROM YOUR BAG:
Visitors to Malaysia must obtain a visa unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries. A visa is an endorsement in a passport or other recognised travel document of a foreigner indicating that the holder is allowed to enter, leave, or stay for a specified period of time in Malaysia.
The Malaysian government issues three types of visas to foreign nationals:
- Single Entry Visa
This is issued to foreign nationals who require a visa to enter Malaysia mainly for a social visit. It is normally valid for a single entry and for a period of three (3) months from the date of issue.
- Multiple Entry Visa
This is issued to foreign nationals who require a visa to enter Malaysia mainly for business or government-to-government matters. It is normally valid for a period within three (3) months to twelve (12) months from the date of issue. Citizens of India and the People’s Republic of China who wish to enter Malaysia for the purpose of a Social Visit are eligible to apply for the Multiple Entry Visa. The validity of the Multiple Entry Visa is one (1) year. Each entry is for 30 days only and the extension of stay is not allowed.
Conditions for the Multiple Entry Visa are:
- The applicant must show proof of sufficient funds for staying in Malaysia.
- The applicant must possess a valid and confirmed return ticket.
- Tour groups are not eligible to apply for Multiple Entry Visa.
- The Multiple Entry Visa costs RM100.00 for Indian citizens and RM30.00 for citizens of the People’s Republic of China.
- Transit Visa
This is issued to foreign nationals who require a visa to enter Malaysia on transit to other countries. Foreign nationals on transit without leaving the airport premises and who continue their journey to the next destination with the same flight do not require a transit visa.
The Malaysian Immigration Department also allows online visa application to foreign nationals from certain countries through eVISA.
You can check for visa eligibility, requirements and fees by country, as well as eVISA eligibility and any other pertinent information by going to the website of the Malaysian Immigration Department at www.imi.gov.my
