The Malaysian government has announced that travellers flying out of Malaysia will be required to pay a departure levy of RM8 to RM150 from 1 September onwards.

Levy rates will depend on the intended destination as well as whether the flight is in economy class. Travellers flying from Malaysia to ASEAN countries will have to pay RM8 if they are in economy class, and RM50 if they’re flying in other classes.

As for those flying to other countries outside of the ASEAN region, those flying in economy will have to RM20, while those flying in other classes will be charged RM150.
