I have a single entry visa to Malaysia (social) but I did not perform the journey. And now I received my Visa Approval Letters (VAL), even though the Visa Approval Letters (VAL) came late. Please can I still proceed with the journey on the single entry visa, Since I have the VAL letter now?? Because the registration is next week.

Which country are you from?

What does VAL letter from your country means?

What is the validity date stated in the Visa?

You have to refer back to the party that have applied the VAL for you.

The single entry visa (social) may not appropriate and there is a Validity date stated in the VAL.

Social/Tourist Pass
It is illegal to study in Malaysia under a social or tourist pass. Students are NOT ALLOWED to enter the country via any other pass other than the student visa. We are NOT ALLOWED to convert social or tourist pass into student visa any more.

All you stated can be directed to your college as they know what to do. Since your visa approval letter came under the 2012 implemented EMGS process, you CANNOT study under a social visit pass(the college won't even allow you). 

Better to come in under the right visa whether late or not since it's the college that will clear you at airport immigration.

CYBERJAYA, Feb 8 — Twenty-nine foreign students were deported last year for abusing their visas, including for being involved in immoral activities.

Deputy Director-General (Control) of Immigration Department, Datuk Ibrahim Abdullah said 91,686 foreign students arrived last year and of the total, 674 were arrested for overstaying.

The students arrested were from Bangladesh (413) followed by China (51), Nigeria (51), Egypt (29), Pakistan (13), Philippines (11) and  others (106).

“We will continue to monitor the activities of foreign students in this country,” he said after a visit by Deputy Minister of Higher Education Datuk Dr Mary Yap Kain Ching to Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGS), here today.

Established in 2012, EMGS is a non-profit company limited by guarantee under the Higher Education Ministry to carry out marketing, promotion and recruitment of international students to Malaysia, including processing student visa.

EMGS chief executive officer Mohd Yazid Abdul Hamid said currently, EMGS received between 6,000 and 7,000 student visa applications monthly and processed between 300 and 400 visas daily.

“Currently, the visa processing period for foreign students will take about seven days, way ahead of the 14-day deadline given by the government,” he said.

According to Mohd Yazid, visa applications of foreign students have to go through two screenings — academic and security — before being approved.

Yap in the meantime, lauded the cooperation between EMGS and the Immigration Department for processing student visa in a shorter period compared to the 14-day deadline.

“The Higher Education Ministry will continue to work with the Immigration Department to eradicate cases of foreign students involved in immoral activities,” she said. — Bernama
