I can't verify that. Its always been possible if one was a resident and could prove it..

only for residents, you've got to have been living there for 2 years

They will not serve US citizens in KL for some reason. Really odd.

See # 108 for a more logical explanation and I know one American resident who did get a visa. Its the same in Singapore for a very long time..

This forum helped me a lot recently, so I wanted to contribute. I am an American citizen and NOT resident in Malaysia and was just today informed by IVS that the Indian High Commission has approved my application for a tourist visa.

The reason that I needed a tourist visa in advance is that I am entering by cruise ship, not air, so VOA is not possible. Along with my application, I wrote a letter explaining my situation and apologizing for the trouble. Also, I was only granted 1 month.

As always, your mileage may vary, but I just wanted to share that, in my experience, it IS possible to get a visa in KL as a non-resident.

Its very good to know and although its a special case (and was very well handled by the applicant) its a nice counterweight to those bitter responses, they took my money and turned me down... Thanks for letting us know.!

Hey friends
I'm Australian and wanting to get a tourist visa for India in KL early 2018.
I've picked up mention of needing to be residential presumably in Malaysia.
Was there a big change between 2009 and 2013?

The policy changed at KLM before that. But, the point is that you no longer are SOL..

Sol ?

No longer SOL? No idea of meaning of this.

I'm aware of the e visa's advent.

I want to get a 6 month multiple visa.
Do I have to be resident in Malaysia to be eligible?

Any one who could help with information about that?

Yes, India visa in Malaysia requires residency for 2 years minimum.

You can actually get 1-year-visas now, if you are lucky. Check here: http://www.indiamike.com/india/for-c...2/#post2000930
