Changes in Malaysian Student Visa -- 7th October 2014

Introduction of New Compulsory I-CARD for All International Students

EMGS (Education Malaysia Global Services) has introduced a new I-Card, which can be used as an international student ID Card. This will mean students will not be required to carry their passports from now on. The I-Card was issued free from July 1st until Sept 30th but is now being charged at RM 50 per year.

As such, the EMGS Student Pass Processing Fee will be revised from RM 1,000 to RM 1,050 to include the cost of the card.

All applicants whose applications which are pending submission to the International Students Dept. will be invoiced RM 50 and this needs to be settled when they arrive at University.

If the card is lost, the student will need to make a police report and pay RM 50 for a replacement card. The card is valid for 1 year. If students change course or progress to another university, they will have to return the card to University to be returned to EMGS. Students will no longer need to carry their passport if they are holding this card. The card is issued by Immigration and is recognized by the Police as well.

For existing students, the I Card will be issued to students upon renewal of visa.
