I got an NTL stamp while visiting to Malaysia on social visa, it was due to frequent travel to Malaysia on social visa. This happened a year ago. I didn't travel to Malaysia or any other country for a year.

Now, I am travelling to Dubai on tourist visa with all required documents for 2 weeks.
I am worried whether this NTL stamp would make any complications in my Dubai visit?? 
This would be my first visit and I will be carrying confirmed return ticket and all other required documents. There will not be any more visits to Dubai.

Please assist me whether I should be worried because of NTL stamp added on my passport in my travel to other countries.

Guess I owe you an answer. You have asked one year ago, I asked further questions, you answered, to be honest, I really dunno why I missed out to reply you.

For normal cases of NTL, can came back to Malaysia after 2, 3 months with valid reasons. Your issue is because of working as your sponsor is SAP. With IT co, your 28 stay is sure for work purpose, and for work purpose in Malaysia you need a work permit and pay income taxes. Same as in Thailand where I am now.

For now  NTL stamp in your passport is no big issue visiting ASEAN countries, but in the near future, it can be a hassle at immigration check points once all participating countries goes online under ASEANAPOL.

To overcome this issue, be streetwise, space out your stay. Do not stay 28 days in any trip. Come early Monday morning and leave by Friday night (if for work purposes). Budget your work time well and get multiple entry visa.

I do not know of other countries treatment towards NTL.

To visit Malaysia again no issue, just be streetwise. You can also make  "Visa Runs" once after 14 days (to neighbouring countries bordering Malaysia). And I mean Once only. Otherwise you get NTL again.

Do Note that I do not know how India eVisa works.

@Jeff,

Thank you so much to provide this information.

Yes this happened an year ago and I raised question here and you shared your views at that time. You are actively helping everyone here with your views and suggestions. Really appreciable.

Just want to ask you more on this point .

I do not know of other countries treatment towards NTL.

Here, I have got Dubai eVisa and I have my travel on 24th of this month. Am I over-thinking about NTL stamp or it may create issue in my current travel??
Please share your last views considering my Dubai travel. I will be visiting for 14 days only and will not travel again on tourist visa in coming 2-3 months..

Yes, I am taking care about travel days and immigration laws in future.. about trip days and visa types..

@ Gaurav

There should be no issues for this Dubai travel. Even if you come to Malaysia also no issue if you understand how to bypass each country's Immigration laws. You are not edgy but just to be on the safe side. Once bitten twice shy. Dubai is an International Business & Trade Center. You will be welcome there. Just be aware of the Shariah Laws there.

  


Just to illustrate a point to you, the above was a conversation between me and my doter a few hours ago. Her company avoided immigration issues by coming back over the weekend and a 5 days work days per week/trip. She is also in IT career.
