Travellers To Malaysia Must Now Fill In Malaysia Customs Form
All Travellers arriving in Malaysia must now fill up the Customs Form No. 7 (K7) under Section 103 of the Custom Act 1967. The Customs Form No. 7 (K7) is for every passenger or other person arriving in or leaving Malaysia to declare all dutiable or prohibited goods in his possession, either on his person or in any baggage or in any vehicle, to the proper officer of customs.
This announcement is on Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM)’s Advisory Information 18/2022 found here dated 4 October 2022, which quotes the Royal Malaysian Customs Department (RMCD) through a letter dated 5 September 2022. However, the RMCD letter cannot be found on RMCD’s website here.
A sample announcement by CAAM for airlines states that “Every arriving traveller is required to declare all dutiable and prohibited goods as well as currencies or other monetary instruments a total amount exceeding USD10,000 in their possession. The declaration shall be made by using Customs Form No. 7 and to be submitted at the Royal Malaysian Customs Department (RMCD) examination checkpoint. Customs Form No. 7 is available at the RMCD counter. Any false declarations or failure to declare is an offence under Malaysian law.”
However, it is unclear if every passenger has to fill up the form or only those who carry dutiable goods or money amounting to more than US$10,000 (about S$14,000). A sample of the Customs Form No. 7 (K7) can be found here.
The Customs Form No. 7 (K7) should not be confused with the IMM 26 Pin 1/09 Malaysia Embarkation/Disembarkation Card, or “white card”.
