My girlfriend is from Malaysia. I want to marry her in India and after marriage, do I need to apply for visa to stay in Malaysia or she will sponsor me and how long does it take to get my visa?

If I convert to Islam. Will it be easier for me to register in India?

Where are you now? Where is your girlfriend now?
Which state or province is your girlfriend living in now?
After marriage you two live in Malaysia or India?

Interfaith marriages in India is complicated. Your conversion in India may not be Syariah compliance. If you intend to migrate to Malaysia, you still have to register your marriage in Malaysia according to our Syariah Laws which is one of the most stringent in this region.

Even married to a Malaysian does not give you auto Residency. After marriage, you enter on a ordinary visa and apply for Long-Term Social Visit Pass (LTSVP) for long term stay. There is no guarantee that you can get Permanent Resident (PR) status even after 5, 10 years. Other conditions apply.

Go to Malaysia and marry your wife there and then go personally to Immigration at Kuala Lumpur to apply for spousal visa together with your wife. Do not be lazy and let your wife do all the work. Your passport and your 10 or 11 fingerprints are needed including facial recognition. You have to sign in front of officers there.

Look like you are marrying for the spousal visa only.

I would suggest that you do the conversion in India. Check with the Malaysian Embassy on whether it is syariah compliance to Malaysia requirements. To do it in Malaysia may take months. Your social visit pass is only valid for 30 days. Take serious notes that once converted, it is irreversible in Malaysia.

Get your darling in Johor to check the local requirements for the marriage at the nearest Islamic Religious Department for local Muslim marriages with foreigners.

This forum is mainly for civil marriages as such, could not offer further information. You can wait for a certified syariah lawyer to come by to advise further.
