EMGS is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Ministry of Education and is the only organisation authorised to process student visa applications for international students who wish to study in Malaysia.
All international students who apply for a student visa are required to undergo a Pre-arrival Medical Screening in their home country for us to submit to EMGS. The application will not be processed until the student’s Pre-arrival Medical Screening details have been submitted to EMGS together with the visa processing fee. Upon arrival, the student will proceed with the Post Medical Screening procedure at an EMGS appointed panel clinic within seven (7) working days from the date of entry.
The decision to issue or refuse a visa is made solely by immigration officers of the Malaysian Immigration Department. All applications will be assessed in accordance with Malaysia’s immigration visa rules and guidelines.
Note: EMGS fees are not refundable.
