Malaysia seeks single visa entry for Asean region

PONTIANAK (Indonesia): Malaysia is pursuing the facilitation of a single visa entry among Asean member countries to boost tourism in the region, which is forecast to receive 30% of the projected one billion tourists globally by 2010.

Tourists coming to Malaysia did not encounter problems getting a visa on arrival or for a two-week stay at present, Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said yesterday.

“We are pushing for single visa entry for Asean, whereby tourists visiting a member state will not need to apply for multiple visas to visit other countries in the grouping,” he told Malaysian journalists covering his visit to meet Indonesian tourism industry players here in West Kalimantan.

While here, Adnan held dialogues with the Wakil Governor Kalimantan Barat Dr Lorencus Herman Kadir, members of the Association of Indonesian Tour and Travel Agents, airlines representatives and other stakeholders of the travel industry.

He said the single visa issue had been raised with his counterpart in Singapore while Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia were keen on the “one destination, three or four countries” strategy to boost regional tourism. – Bernama
