Malaysia limits visits by Israeli nationals E-mail

Malaysian media outlet Malay Mail Online has reported that the number of Israel citizens entering the country for business and technology-related events has dwindled from 33 visitors in 2016 to only three individuals this year, this according Malaysian Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

This is in line with the Government’s new policy, which no longer allows Israel representatives to enter Malaysia for conferences, meetings and programmes held by international organisations, he added.

Responding to a question posed by Pengkalan Chepa MP Ahmad Marzuk Shaary during a sitting of Parliament in April, Muhyiddin revealed via a written reply that the three Israelis were given permission to enter Malaysia this year for existing business dealings.

“No further permission has been given to Israel citizens (to enter Malaysia for) international conferences, meetings and programmes”, the minister said.

Compared to previous years, Malaysia has seen a drastic drop in the number of Israelis entering the country this year.
