The Malaysian government on Monday decided not to revive the issuance of visas on arrival (VOA) to foreign tourists at the entry points into the country. The Deputy Prime Minister said the move to revoke the implementation of the VOA was due to the fact that the visas were being abused .

"In the past, we gave flexibility to several nations if their visitors came to this country, they don't have the visa...(but) the visa could be issued to them upon arrival at the entry point into Malaysia.

"We notice that this (VOA) was being abused and so on. We agreed that the VOA be revoked or discontinued," he said.

He said this after chairing the meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Foreign Workers and Illegal Immigrants, here.
