I understand it is no issue in Bangkok but I can't entertain the idea of going back there. Has anyone experienced trying to apply in Kuala Lumpur? Also, any information on obtaining and Indian Tourist visa in Kuala Lumpur would be great.

Haha, I had a right hassle getting my India visa in KL. Firstly, the embassy is way out of town and only accessible by taxi - as you have to go in person to both submit and collect your visa this does get a bit expensive. You don't say which nationality you are...which depends on how long it will take. I'm from Uk and it took 3 working days...however, as the Monday (at the time) was a Malaysian bank holiday and the Thursday was an Indian bank holiday, the embassy was closed on those days so my visa took an entire week. So...check the bank holiday dates of both countries before you plan!!!

Thanks, I also possess a British Passport.

Can you reveal when you applied? Because I heard that the embassy moved recently.

Cheers!

The High Commission of India has outsourced their visa application services to an agency, and they no longer accept applications for visa at its premises. All Indian Visa applications are now handled by Grandlotus India Visa Centre. The KL branch is located at the city centre, near the Clock Tower, at the end of Central Market (See this map, the one given at the High Commission website is wrong!). Nearest LRT (metro) stations are Masjid Jamek and Pasar Seni. You can also walk from Chinatown (< 20 mins).

The High Commission of Bangladesh Consular Services only publishes the visa fees for Malaysians on its website, which is MYR37 for single entry or MYR72 for multiple. For other nationals it requires you to contact them at the number given. I doubt it would cost a lot more than the one Malaysians pay. The nearest LRT station is Ampang Park (see map), about 15 mins walk. On the map, there's another LRT station, Damai, right north of the High Commission, but it's separated by a river and there's no bridge nearby for you to cross.

Hien is right - its a very simple process - fill in the form which you can get online, bring the money and passport photos to the place and they'll tell you when you can collect your visa... It took 3 working days for me. Totally straightforward - they dont even check if you have a return ticket or booked accomodation - just to be on the safe side dont mention Kashmir on you declared itenary (its just a rough guide for them in any case)...

7055,

Thanks for those post here,

Actually I am not give you perfect informations to you. But if you need any kind of support of question don't hegitate to ask me.

As per I know, you need a invitation letter from a Bangladeshi citizen or confirm hotel reservation from a hotel and others things are very simple for getting Bangladeshi visa.

Thanks,
Saiful
