Please inform us of your flight arrival details (flight number, date and time) at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at least one week (7 days) before arrival.
The Malaysian Immigration Department requires the Academy’s staff to escort students through the passport control desk, otherwise students are not allowed through. Non-notification may result in students having to wait for College staff at the airport. If this happens over a weekend or public holiday, there may be no staff available until the next working day. In such cases you may need to stay in the KLIA transit hotel.
Upon arrival at the Academy, the International Student Department (ISD) collects the passports for endorsement by the Malaysian Immigration Department. Endorsement involves issuance of a one-year multiple entry sticker in the passport. Endorsement takes up to four (4) weeks, during which time students are requested not to make any travel plans out of Malaysia. In the meantime the College will issue official identification documents to students. Please ensure that your passport has more than one blank page and is valid for more than one (1) year from the intake date.
English Language Competency Test
It is COMPULSORY for students to sit for the English Placement Test (EPT).
Students who do not meet the English requirement may be required to undergo an Intensive English Programme for a minimum period of 10 weeks or additional remedial English classes in the first semester (charged separately).
Please take note that it is the prerogative of the Malaysian Immigration Department to approve or reject any visa application.
- The issuance of Student Pass (Visa) Approval Letter by the Malaysian Immigration Department can take up to 1 month.
- Students are responsible to check with the Malaysian Embassy in their country regarding any special requirements or visa requirements before coming to Malaysia. For example, the student may need to apply for a Single-Entry Visa to enter Malaysia, in order to avoid a fine or being turned away at the airport.
- Students from yellow fever endemic areas (e.g. Africa, Central and South America) are required to take the necessary inoculations before coming to Malaysia. The Medical Certificate will be verified by the Health & Quarantine officers in the Airport.
