Khairul Fahmi made his debut against Oman on 3 September 2010 replacing Mohd Sharbinee Allawee Ramli during the second half. He kept a clean sheet for the entire second half after Malaysia conceding 3 goals in the first half of the match. In November 2010, Khairul Fahmi was called up to the Malaysia national squad by coach K. Rajagopal for the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup. Khairul kept a cleansheet against Thailand on a 0–0 draw. Khairul also kept a cleansheet against Vietnam twice in the semi finals. In the first leg of the finals, Khairul played well against the Indonesians. The match ended a 3–0 win to Malaysia, thus earning another clean sheet to Khairul.[13] In the second leg of the finals held in Indonesia, Khairul gave another outstanding performance by making numerous saves including a brilliant penalty save early in the match. The save proved to be a pivotal moment in the match in which Malaysia scored an away goal. Malaysia won on 4–2 aggregate and lifted the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup title for the first time.[14] Khairul Fahmi was selected for the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup. On 26 November 2012, Malaysia's opening group match against Singapore ended up with the Malaysian side losing 0–3. The Lions scored the first goal through their captain, Shahril Ishak at the 32nd-minute. Six minutes later, Ishak once again scored a goal for the Lions as a result of Khairul Fahmi's blunder at goal. In the second half, veteran Singaporean forward Aleksandar Đurić completed the rout against the Tigers with the third and final goal of the game. The match resulted in 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup holders Malaysia losing its first group match of the tournament, and Khairul was subsequently dropped for the rest of the Tigers' campaign.
