Dear Student,

It is important that you inform us of your pending arrival as soon as you have made a reservation or booking. We require you to adhere to the dates given as the optimum time for you to arrive in Malaysia. Our International Office personnel will be at the airport to meet and greet you as well as to assist you in clearing customs and immigration.

As an international student, you will ONLY be allowed into the country if you carry a VALID calling visa. However, even if you do have a valid calling visa, you will NOT be allowed into Malaysia unless our personnel is there to escort you through the immigration and customs stations. Therefore it is essential that you inform us least a week earlier of your arrival details.

Should you have any problems or queries, please feel free to contact us either by telephone, email or fax at the numbers / addresses above.

If your contact details have changed or if you have been blessed with a more convenient contact system (e.g ; a mobile phone or email), please let us know, as this will greatly assist us in contacting you. If your flight details have been changed please contact us as soon as possible so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

Thank you and welcome!

Yours sincerely,
International Student Officer, IMPERIA COLLEGE


Pre-Departure Information

Upon receiving your application for admission into IMPERIA College, 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:
1. Application form
2. Application fees payment
3. Eight (8) passport-sized photographs
4. 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 College. 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 College 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.


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).

Visa types

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: 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.​
