I am an American citizen currently backpacking in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I was planning on going to Malaysia during my trip, but I have learned while I was here that Visa on Entry has been abolished. BUT, the official Embassy website still says that "no visa is required for less than a 3 month stay."

So...basically I'm hoping for some clarification: do I need to attain a Visa from an Embassy here, or am I ok to just fly into the country and get a stamp?

Thanks for your help!

You still do not need a visa to enter Malaysia as a tourist if staying less than 3 months. You are fine to fly in and get your stamp. Enjoy Malaysia!
