Canada imposes visa requirements on Malaysians

Published:  |  Modified:

OTTAWA - The Canadian government said today that Malaysians seeking to enter the country would henceforth require a "temporary resident visa" as the Malaysian passport system was "vulnerable to abuse".

Malaysians had been exempt from the visa requirement.

"The decision to lift the visa exemption was made because the Malaysian passport and passport issuing system are vulnerable to abuse," Denis Doderre, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, said in a statement.
