New students MUST submit their passport for endorsement. Visa charges are imposed by the Immigration Dept according to country of origin. Endorsements by the Immigration Dept may take up to eight (8) weeks.

Students will be issued a receipt and copy of their passport as temporary identification pending the endorsement process.

Failure to hand in passports for endorsement may result in students overstaying their current visit passes or be classified as illegal immigrants by the Malaysian Immigration Department.


For students who need Student Pass extensions:

  • Submit passport and required documents one (1) month before the current Student Pass expires. Failure to do so may result in late approvals, additional payments and penalties to obtain a Special Pass to avoid overstaying.
  • Extensions by the Immigration Dept takes up to four (4) weeks. However during festive and holiday seasons it could take longer. It is advisable to submit passports early for renewal. Students are requested not to make travel plans outside Malaysia during the endorsement process.

Penalties exist for expired visas.

Overstaying is a serious offence under Malaysian law. It can result in imprisonment and deportation. You can be denied entry into Malaysia in the future if you have a record created for overstaying your visa.

Compound fines for overstaying Student Passes is RM1,000 and increases for repeat offences.
