The Malaysian Autogate system, introduced by the government in January 2024, facilitates the entry and exit of passengers by scanning their passports. Initially, this system was available to nationals of Australia, Brunei, Germany, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Starting 1 June 2024, nationals from the following countries can also use the Autogate system:

Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Greece, Hong Kong SAR, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Oman, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United Arab Emirates.

In addition to the above nationals, all diplomats serving in Malaysia and their families can also use this facility.

The first time you enter Malaysia, you must manually verify your passport before using the Autogate system. For every subsequent visit, you can directly enter by scanning your passport at the Autogate. The only prerequisite is that you complete and submit the Malaysia Digital Arrival Card (MDAC) three days before your arrival.
