Make an appointment at a Malaysian Mission

Registering to vote

Only High Commissions and Consulate-Generals are allowed to process your registration to vote.

Always call before visiting to make an appointment. Make sure the officer-in-charge of election registration is available, and that they have the forms they need for your registration.

Applications are sent back to the Election Commission in Malaysia every week by diplomatic mail.


1. Find your nearest Malaysian Mission


2. During your appointment

The officer-in-charge will fill in an absent voter form (Form A) with your basic details. You will be asked to provide basic details to complete the form.

The officer-in-charge then examines your documents, and will ask for copies of your documents to certify them as real copies. These will be sent back to Malaysia alongside your registration form for the Election Commission's reference.

Check that the details on your Form A are correct. You will then sign the registration form and the Officer then counter-signs it. You will be given a copy of the form for your reference. Keep this copy in a safe place.
