What are the student visa requirements for Malaysia?

The student visa application process for Malaysia is facilitated by the institute to which the student has been accepted. The university or institute applies on behalf of the student through EMGS (Education Malaysia Global Services). The required documents usually include a completed application form, a health declaration form, a passport-sized photograph with a white background, and a scan of all passport pages, including empty pages. To initiate the visa process, the student pays a visa application and processing fee to the university. The cost of the visa application ranges from 600 to 800 USD, and as of 2023, the visa success rate is 95%. Upon successful processing and approval of the visa application, students are required to obtain a Single Entry Visa (SEV) after receiving their E-VAL (Electronic Visa Approval Letter), which is issued by EMGS.
