Post Arrival to Malaysia
  1. We recommend that you arrive a few days before registration week at ICOM so that you may get plenty of rest and to also get acclimatized to your new environment.
  2. Once you arrive at ICOM, the International Student Office will require that you surrender your passport to the office in order to complete your student pass approval.
  3. The International Student Office will submit your passport to EMGS to secure the multiple entry Student Visa.
  4. The Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education requires you to undergo a set of medical health examination in Malaysia within 7 days from your first day of entry to the country. The medical checkup must be done with the appointed clinic or panel clinics listed by EMGS. Medical checkups conducted at clinics other than the ones appointed by EMGS will be disqualified.
  5. If you are coming from Yellow Fever Endemic Zones such as Africa and South America in particular, please ensure that you are vaccinated before entering Malaysia.
