I plan to make a 2,5 month visit to Malaysia for purpose of leisure, taking up a part-time culinary course with a private institution (who can't help to get a student visa), do some friends visits.
Being Kazakhstan Republic citizen i am eligible for 1month visit without a visa. My local Malaysian Embassy explained me this is all what i can get at the moment...
My questions are:
1) Is the there a way to extend the 1month permit once i am in KL?
What are the ways to do this? For how long can i extend it maximum?
2) Do i have to have the return air ticket while entering Malaysia for the 1st month? What if i actually would like to leave country overland to Thailand for instance? Are train tickets playing same role in case of overland further travel?
3) In case if i can not extend my 1month pass, can i leave for few days to Thailand or Singapore overland and come back again? Will i have to show again the return air or train tickets on re-enter?
If someone has been in similiar situation, please advise! I will be grateful to hear any comments!
