Notice to Malaysian

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia encourages all Malaysian travelers to register with their local Embassy or Consulate when arriving in a foreign country. Registration helps the Embassy to provide important services for Malaysian residing or traveling abroad.

Some of these services include:

* Locating individuals in cases of family or personal emergencies,
* Relaying important travel and safety information about the region,
* Arranging evacuation transportation in cases of natural disaster or civil unrest,
* Issuing replacement passports when originals are lost, and
* A number of other administrative services relating to personal documentation.

Without the information provided through registration, the Embassy is severely hindered in its ability to provide these services. Many of these services involve emergency situations and time constraints, therefore failure to register will almost certainly lead to delays at moments when you can least afford them.
