Malaysia in Feb! Visa Question.
23rd March, 2011
We have resigned from our jobs and booked our tickets for our 3 month trip through SEA! We will be kicking off our trip in Malaysia and we are really looking forward to it. We will be flying into KL and as I understand it we do not require a visa for a stay up to 30 days (we are South African passport holders). I have read on some websites that for this to apply we will require proof of onward depature (our air tickets are one way). Is this true and has anybody had a problem with this? Would a ferry ticket suffice as we plan on taking a ferry from Langkawi to Thailand.
Thanks for your help,

Congratulations on the unemployment! The onward travel/visa issue has never come up for me. I have been to many Asian countries (Malaysia included) and have never been asked for onward travel proof. That being said - I am Canadian, it might be different for South African citizens...
The only issue coming from the west tends to be Americans boarding their airlines in the USA. Some USA airlines require proof of onward travel before boarding/departure.
My advice would be to contact your airlines and the South African Consulate in Malaysia (if there is one!) and run your question by one or both of them.
Have a great time.
