Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the change of leadership in the US will not affect Malaysia’s efforts to be part of the country’s visa-waiver programme.

He added the visa-waiver programme was set by the State Department, and the results of the US presidential election in November would unlikely influence the policy. 

He also stated that Malaysia needed to bring its US visa application rejection rate to below 3%, the only one of the seven requirements yet to be met by the country.
