Student Visa General Process
Get Accepted by Malaysian University
Receive a formal admissions letter from your chosen institution and pay any enrollment fees. Your university contacts the Malaysian immigration authorities to register an application on your behalf. They’ll ask you to read through and digitally sign the official application form after they’ve filled it in.
Gather Documents and Pay The Fees
You’ll need to send your university several documents so they can complete the application. Proceed to pay the application fee, some universities also charge a processing fee. The exact amount will depend on the institution. Once you pay your fees your visa application is ready for processing.
Wait For Your Letter Of Approval
The immigration authorities will normally notify the university of your application outcome within a week. Your university will forward the visa approval letter (VAL) to you. This is a provisional student pass that allows you to enter the country. You’ll need to present this to immigration officials upon your arrival.
Arrange Your Travel Plans
Inform your university about the details of your arrival dates, airport location, and flight numbers. A university representative will usually meet you at the airport. After your arrival your university will send off your passport to the immigration department within two weeks of your arrival. When it returns, it’ll include your student pass sticker.
