I was studying for a Masters at LimKokWing University. I graduated from there too. I finished one semester. And then missed the registration for the 2nd semester but already paid. I didn't know much about the deferment. I thought I could just renew my visa and register for next semester. Before my student pass expired, I reapplied and submitted along with ALl the required documents requested by my university. I exited Malaysia before my visa expiry date with C.O.M I got not blacklist until then. But after 4 months I came to know that I got blacklisted by the Immigration. Now, the university told me they are working to clear my name from the blacklist from the Immigration.

Does anyone know about this procedure? In this case is there anything I can do? Did anyone face this situation before? Can I still travel to Malaysia with a tourist visa?

Hello Dear. Hope you are doing fine. After almost 2 years, I came to know from my university that, I got a permanent blacklist on students or long-term passes. But I can visit with a Tourist visa. How true is that? My appeal got rejected for 2nd time as the university told me. However, the university could not give me any official documents for that as proof. Shall I apply for a tourist visa and try to enter Malaysia and if I can, what can I do for withdrawing from my blacklist?

I got a permanent blacklist on students or long-term passes.
As far as I am concerned, there is no permanent blacklist as long as there is a COM done. There could be some other immigration infringements without the college declaring it

The best is to go to the nearest Malaysian Embassy to check of the blacklisting (if any). Do not listen to just to the party who got you blacklisted (if any).

My appeal got rejected for 2nd time as the university told me.
Appeal to EMGS or MY IMI?
There must be proof from either Govt Agencies not just the college.

As far as I am concern, because of covid pandemic lockdown for 2 years, many colleges went "bust" financially and were under lawsuits. As a result, some courses (unpopular ones) were terminated by the MOHE (specific to the affected colleges only). For all I care or don't bother to care beyond my control, it could be the college who was blacklisted from conducting certain courses or even the closing down of certain unpopular private colleges due to non renewal of their "permits".

A trip back could clarified everythingy with the MY IMI personally.

Shall I apply for a tourist visa and try to enter Malaysia
YES.. U should but watch out for the covid travel requirements.
You will need further confirmation from the Malaysian Embassy located at your country of residency to confirm of any blacklist and the type of blacklisting. Do not believe any college visa officers. Many student were really blacklisted due to errors initiated by their colleges due to this covid pandemic. But this does not mean that it is a blacklist on entering as a tourist or MM2H future applications.

Dear,

Take my best wishes for your and your family . May god bless you that you are still helping so generously. Hope someday I could meet you to thank you personally. 

Firstly, You are absolutely right that some institutions might have gotten into cancellation of licenses probably. After Limkokwing's death, the university could not renew its license, and many students sued the university for the loss of the course accreditation. It can be Google about this news with Limkokwing. I asked the university several times for proof of documents that I got blacklisted. They never replied me with such proof. I hope there is and I should be able to get from them. 

I applied for tourist Evisa. IMI approved my visa this month. You have previously answered about how can a student submit an appeal directly to IMI DG. Shall I proceed with that with the relevant documents after entering? I really wanted to finish my master's in Malaysia. Any ideas, how long it may take for IMI DG to respond? Asking just in case i have to stay a few days to 15 days with the tourist visa. 

Again, Thank you in advance. I was very hopeless until I came to this forum and found you. I feel blessed and honored for you giving your valuable time.

Sorry to make another post, which is based on the translation I can see that, so many stampings with multiple dates saying accepted. And the university might have mentioned that the error was from the university and that I notified the university earlier about my semester deferment. 

The university replied with this letter and said, I am never going to be able to study or get any long-term passes in Malaysia. 

So, After I visit Malaysia, shall I approache to IMI MY to appeal for my blacklist clearance ?

Hahaha.. it was because a police report was made and filed subsequently to Malaysia Immigration that caused you to be blacklisted (upon request from LKW).

The "Di terima" meaning in the doc you posted above, is "Received" and not meaning "Accepted". Receiving the doc, does not mean it is accepted.

If I'm the immigration, I would not reply. To reply means "accepting liability" to any lawsuits (by You).

There should be more names in the blacklist submitted on 01 Mac 2020 (after you have left Malaysia), not only your name. How to cancel a police report with so many names inside? To make an inaccurate police report is liable to be "counter-sued" in the event of disputes. Some people really do not know how the police system works..!! Even highly educated visa officers..!!!

My personal comment solution for your case is:

Once you arrive back to Malaysia, go direct to Malaysia Immigration to settle the dispute (if any). Then only Malaysia Immigration will act on your complaint /Immigration blacklist. Bring all supporting docs to justify your complaint with recourse. The only missing party is You..!! Without your presence, Malaysia Immigration will not reply to any other party.

Show messages saying that the College informed you of the blacklist.

That's why I have stated before. Once there is a COM, you have exited legally and not blacklisted. The blacklist was requested by the college after you have left. You have to go direct to Putrajaya to make a legitimate legal recourse..!!
