You are responsible to renew your student pass before it expires. Kindly note that the Immigration Department of Malaysia penalises students who overstay without a valid pass.

Renew or extend your pass through the International Student Pass office as early as twelve (12) weeks and no later than eight (8) weeks before your current Student Pass expires. You will be advised on the submission of hard copy documents for us to certify your document and passport if your renewal application is approved by the Immigration Department of Malaysia. In the event that your renewal application is rejected, we will advise you on the next steps. Please prepare the following documents:

  • one copy of all pages of your passport
  • one passport-sized colour photo with white background (3.5cm x 5cm)
  • one copy of passport information page
  • one copy of current student pass page
  • a research progress report if you’re a research student
  • An explanation letter if you did not meet the attendance or WAM requirements.

To renew your student pass, you have to fulfill the minimum requirements set by the Ministry of Education Malaysia:

  • a minimum of 80% attendance rate
  • a minimum CGPA of 2.0 every year or WAM of 50%

You have to pay a fee to renew your student pass, which includes the cost of your medical insurance premium and  i-Kad. Please submit your passport for endorsement when you are notified by us.
