If there is no Malaysian Embassy in your country, you may be eligible to obtain a Visa On Arrival (VOA) with your VAL. The list of countries without a Malaysian Embassy may be viewed here. On arrival in Malaysia, at the International Airport, you must approach the Visa on Arrival Counter and show your VAL prior to passing the Immigration Checkpoint. You must obtain a Visa On Arrival stamp inside your passport. Failure to do so may result in difficulties in converting your Social Entry Pass status to a Student Pass.
This VAL is valid for (6) months from the date issuance. You are advise to follow the guideline date for the VAL submission. However, if you wish to defer your registration, please be alert for the validity of the VAL. Once your VAL expired, you are NOT ALLOWED to extend the validity of the VAL. You must cancel the VAL and apply for a new one.
Do not submit the passport close to the expiry date of the Social/Special/Permit-to-stay Stamp which you obtained from Immigration in your passport on arrival.
You must submit your passport to i-PUTRA, Visa and Pass Counter for conversion to a Student Pass at least 11 days before the expiry date to avoid paying additional charges.
To cancel VAL kindly submit document required to i-PUTRA.
