You may also direct your enquiries to the officers in charge below:
Single Entry Visa (SEV) with VAL reference is required for selected nationalities entering Malaysia as students. Normally, there will be a fee imposed if you apply for a SEV. Any fee incurred will be borne by the student. Please visit the Malaysian Embassy/Consulate Office in your home country for confirmation to avoid a fine or being turned back at the airport.
Students from yellow fever endemic areas (e.g. Africa, Central & South America) are required to take the necessary inoculations. The vaccination certificate will be verified by the Malaysian Health & Quarantine officers at the airport.
You MUST report to the Student Visa Office within seven (7) days of your arrival. We will advise you on how to proceed with the Post Medical Health Check and to get your Student Pass endorsed.
Your passport will be submitted to EMGS for student pass and visa endorsement. This process takes 4-6 weeks. Do not to make any travel plans until the endorsement process is completed and your passport is returned to you. The Student Visa Office will issue official identification documents to you whilst your passport is being endorsed at the Immigration Office.
Endorsement will only be given once you have passed the post medical health check. EMGS reserves the right to request a repeat test should there be any doubt in the findings of the initial medical report. You may appeal and redo the test, but additional cost will be incurred and borne by you. Should the report fail for the second time, you will be refused a student pass and are required to leave the country before the temporary pass expires.
Also, it is your responsibility to hand in your passport for endorsement. Failure to do so will result in you overstaying your temporary pass and be classified as illegal immigrant by the Malaysian Immigration Department.
Overstaying is a criminal offence under Malaysian law. It will have serious consequences for any future immigration applications that you make, including applications for countries other than Malaysia. It can result in imprisonment and deportation.
