This is a question that is pondering in my mind for a while. My dad said when we were packing things for holiday in Malaysia that I can't bring in my laptop into Malaysia. I was curious about this and went on to search for this and i found this site that made me even more confused.
As you carefully, the list of goods prohibited from importation unless having a license shows nothing regarding laptops but however, it states ,'' Electrical apparatus for domestic use such as Hi-Fi sets, electric smoothing irons, food mixers, hair dryers, rice cookers, televisions, electric kettles, etc. ''
What does it mean? Does it mean i can't bring in my laptop or my PSP into Malaysia? Please help me clear up my doubt before i set on the road for Malaysia tomorrow. Thanks.
call up Malaysian High Commission and ask
i never knew such a rule? btw, i carry back and forth my laptop to KL, Penang, Sabah, Sarawak
why not.. i always bring them oversea..
not a problem at all.
I haven't got any problem so far.
i'm not too sure but i think its prohibted because there is no standard main voltage throughout the world and it can be dangerous if u were to plug in your laptop using a different voltage. Maybe your electrical appliances are designed to cater to singapore's main voltage of 230volts whereas malaysia is 240volts.. The power socket may also be different looking.
It doesnt matter. look at the converter of your lappy. They normally accept a range of voltage and usually that range is rather big. That is definitly not a cause for concern.
