Malaysian visa rules require all international students to have a Hospitalisation and Surgical Insurance once in Malaysia.
We buy your insurance after you accept your study offer and we apply for your Student Pass study visa through EMGS, which handles Student Pass applications for the Ministry of Higher Education.
AXA Affin is EMGS’s newly appointed medical insurance provider, but some existing students might have a policy issued by an older provider, AIG. You can discuss your health cover or a claim at these numbers:
- AXA Affin insurance - MediExpress Hotline: 1300 8000 20, or EMGS: +60 3 2782 5888)
- AIG insurance - Chartis Assistance Centre (24-Hour emergency service): +60 3 2772 5611 (they accept reverse charges).
Cover and benefits
Hospitalisation and Surgical Insurance fully covers or contributes toward most hospital charges, including room and board, consultation and surgical fees, intensive care and outpatient services, road ambulance services and reimbursement of tuition fees for lengthy illness (but some maximum limits could apply).
