Renewing your student pass

A Student Pass can last no more than a year. You’re responsible for renewing it if studying beyond its expiry date, which you should note carefully – Malaysia penalises students who overstay.

You should apply to extend your pass through the International Student Pass office at least twelve weeks before your current Student Pass expires. You will need to submit:

  • one copy of all pages of your passport (ensure passport validity is at least 14 months from student pass expiry date)
  • one passport-sized colour photo with blue background (3.5cm x 5cm)
  • your attendance record
  • your academic results
  • a research progress report if you’re a research student.

You will pay a fee to renew your Student Pass, which includes the cost of your medical insurance premium, i-Kad and multiple entry visa (if needed).  Submit your passport four weeks before your current Student Pass expires or when you are advised to do so.

The renewal process can take up to twelve weeks to complete provided that you fulfilled the minimum requirement set by Immigration/EMGS.
