For further information, please contact the nearest Malaysian diplomatic mission or Tourism Malaysia office.


Those international delegates requiring a visa to enter Malaysia will need a letter of invitation in order to obtain a visa to visit Malaysia. It is very important that you start arranging your visa in time. The procedure takes at least two weeks, and it can be very difficult to arrange an appointment with the embassy. Since it does require time to process, we strongly suggest that you plan on as much lead time as possible to get your letter request in and process your visa application.

We can provide an invitation letter for you for the ESTCON2018 Congress so long as you have already registered for this conference and sent us the request form with a scanned copy of your passport. These are all necessary for obtaining your invitation letter. In addition, please note that the Organiser will not be able to contact or intervene on behalf of applicants with any Malaysian Embassy or Consulate office abroad, and the Organiser shall not be liable for delegates’ visa applications.

All submitted information is verified prior to the letter being produced; it is not an automatic process and it will take approximately 7-10 business days to process and email the requested invitation letter to you. We are unable to respond to requests submitted after our deadline of xx/xx/xxxx. Please note that this invitation letter does not guarantee that you will receive a visa and all invitation letters will be sent via email. For the official invitation please complete the request for an official invitation letter form.
