Indians account for the highest number of foreign tourists who could not be traced after the expiry of their visas in Malaysia, the Home Ministry said in Kuala Lumpur.

About 25,400 visitors had failed to return to their home countries and out of these about 14,000 had been identified as Indian tourists, the Star newspaper reported.

The newspaper did not mention the time period of the tourist arrivals.

Since the Malaysian government had introduced the visa-on-arrival facility last year in conjunction with the Visit Malaysia 2007 campaign, about 8.32 lakh foreign tourists had arrived in the country.
