The Government of Malaysia has agreed to allow the entry of international students effective from 1st January 2021. The latest Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) on international students entering Malaysia is available on the Education Malaysia Global Services webpage.
VACCINATED TRAVEL LANE (VTL) PROGRAMME
Beginning 29th November 2021, travellers arriving from Singapore may opt to apply for the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) programme to enter Malaysia. The VTL programme is available for categories of travellers mentioned below:
- Malaysian/Singaporean Citizens
- Malaysian Permanent Resident
- Long Term Pass Holders with a valid pass (inclusive of a Student Pass)
A guide on the SOP to enter Malaysia has been prepared and applies to the following international students as defined by the Immigration Department of Malaysia:
I. Entry Guidelines and Quarantine Process for New International Students
New international students who have accepted offers to study at MUM and have not entered Malaysia; have a Visa Approval Letter (VAL) that expired in 2020; entered Malaysia in 2020 with a VAL and left Malaysia without completing the Student Pass endorsement process; or who will be entering Malaysia with a Visa Approval Letter (VAL). Refer to the Entry Guidelines and Quarantine Process for New International Students
II. Entry Guidelines and Quarantine Process for Existing International Students
Existing international students who have commenced studying at MUM and have an existing Student Pass that is valid or expired (from 1 February 2020 onwards only). Refer to the Entry Guidelines and Quarantine Process for Existing International Students
All international students need a Student Pass (Visa) to study in Malaysia. The Immigration Department of Malaysia issues and regulates the passes. Monash University does not have the authority to approve or reject your student pass application. The Student Pass can last for one (1) year or more depending on your application. You have to ensure your student pass is valid and renewed on time during your studies in Monash University Malaysia.
For a summary of your obligations as an international student and Student Pass holder, please check out our immigration regulations page.
As an international student impacted by Covid19 restrictions, you may have questions surrounding your Student Pass. We have prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that new and existing international students may find useful.
