If your documents are complete, your profile will be automatically made and we give you your profile number which indicates what you have applied for. So, from that moment till the very end, you have to mention your profile number in all future correspondence with us. Don’t forget that it’s impossible to verify emails without the profile number due to the vast number of requests.
Fifth: Banking affairs
Application fee receipt (An amount of money you pay to an organization such as universities as the charge of evaluating your documents through a process you have already applied for.) should be attached to your profile.
Sixth: Sending your profile to university or college:
Your complete profile will be sent to your selected college by us and if your documents are complete, you will receive your offer letter
Seventh: Approval letter
The Approval Letter is a letter in which you are considered qualified to study in a college or a private university to peruse your interests or further studies. This letter is issued by EMGS as an organization responsible for non-public educational institutions. Applicants have an advantage to directly check out their work-in-progress which is presented by percentage. So, it’s somehow a lot easier to plan for tomorrow and therefore you will be always one step ahead of time!
How to get Malaysian student visa?
There are four steps to get student visa:
Students receive offer letter form a Malaysian educational center in their origin country
Students prepare their documents to apply for a visa for that educational center like a university and receive another letter in their origin country which is called “Approval letter” or “VDR” for public centers.
Applicant is considered eligible from now on to introduce himself/herself and his/her dependents included spouse, children and sometimes parents to the Malaysian embassy to proceed with a visa called “Social visa”
Applicant enters Malaysia and registers in the mentioned educational center and gives his/her passport in order for the “student visa” to be issued after all.
How long does it take to receive VDR/ Approval letter?
It takes about 30-50 workdays depending on whether you applied for a public or private university. There is usually a faster procedure for private universities to send Approval letters which could sometimes take less than 30 workdays.
How to extend the student visa?
It actually depends on where you study and what your program is, but typically it is something you need to refer to your University. There is an International Affairs department in every university or college in which you need to apply to have your student visa extended every year.
Students must apply to extend their student visa at least 2 months prior than expiration date.
The student visa extension takes a maximum of 2 Months.
Is it possible to change my visa type?
Yes, but take note that you can’t apply for two visas at the same time. Just for instance, if you want to apply for a student visa from a university that recently has given you the offer letter, but right now you are studying English in a college - that means you have to first withdraw form this college, cancel your English-learning visa and only then, apply for the new university you want to study.
Who could be my dependent?
Spouse(s), Children and Parents are considered your dependents and could company you during your study time.
What are the criteria of getting visa for my dependents?
Bachelor: All applicants can get dependent visa.
Master: Full time and coursework program applicants can get dependent visa.
PHD: Full time and people who have at least been staying for 12 months in row applicants can get dependent visa.
English colleges: No dependent visa
