MALAYSIAN IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Upon receiving your application for admission into IMPERIA Institute of Technology, we will lodge an application on your behalf with the Malaysian Immigration Department for a Calling Visa. This procedure usually takes three to five weeks before an outcome is known. In order to apply for the Calling Visa, we need your complete application form, application fees payment, eight (8) passport-sized photographs and two (2) photocopied sets of your academic transcripts and Medical report. When the application for your Calling Visa has been approved by Malaysian Immigration, we will notify you immediately.
You should then finalize your travel preparations. The tuition fees can be brought to Malaysia in the form of an international demand draft made in favour of IMPERIA Institute of Technology. You should make two sets of photocopies of all your legal documents (passport, national identity card, driver’s license, birth certified) – leave a set with your parent/guardian and carry a set with you to Malaysia. We also recommend that you bring with you extra (approx. 10) passport-sized photographs.
Upon arrival in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), an IMPERIA Institute of Technology member of staff will meet you. It is very important that you provide us with accurate arrival details at least one week in advance so that we can meet you at the airport. In order for you to enter Malaysia, our representative MUST accompany you through the Immigration Clearance process at KLIA.
After Arriving in Malaysia
During your first week in Malaysia, you will need to apply for the Student Pass / Entry Visa. We will assist you in this procedure. When the passport is returned to you, please check your visa status (i.e. Type of visa that you are given)
- Single Entry Visa: Permitted to enter and then remain in Malaysia for the visa period specified. If you wish to go overseas or return to your home country, you will need to apply for a re-entry permit to Malaysia at least two weeks in advance of your departure date.
- Multiple Entry Visa: you are permitted to enter Malaysia as many as you wish within the visa period specified. You are therefore able to travel abroad and then return to Malaysia freely as long as your passport and visa remain valid.
Note: Malaysian Immigration laws strictly prohibit international students from entering into employment or business activities.
