Signed up to use immigration autogates at KUL - Highly recommended if eligible

Recommended Posts

I had found out about this only recently from a comment under a YT video of a flight reviewer missing his flight at KLIA due to being stuck in the immigration exit line for one hour. I had not heard before that as a passport holder from one of of the 10 eligible countries, I could apply for this and as a frequent traveller to Malaysia this would make things so much easier.


Arrived on Thursday evening - my 3rd time ever since the digital arrival card was introduced and asked an official in the arrivals hall about using the autogates. I was directed to the nearby immigration office where they took my fingerprints and presto! that was it. From now on, I can use them all the time (digital arrival card still required). I immediately used it to enter (& exit the next day), it takes about 10 seconds now. 😀


No more stamps in the passport too, which is another benefit, as even with extra pages, a 10 year pp lasts me only about five.


The eligible "you've been good girls & boys" nationalities are:


Australia, Brunei, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, United States and the United Kingdom



P.S. Thailand should do this but they never ever will.

Autogates only exist at the airport. But once you are in the system, you can use them, is my understanding. I don't see why you couldn't use them then to exit at KLIA but best to confirm this at the airport with an immigration officer.
