a day before lockdown as a tourist
On a tourist pass, you MUST leave once travels resume.
Tourist Pass can never be converted into student pass.

will i not be able to continue my studies anymore?
You are not supposed to be inside Malaysia now.. !!

Current R&R, if you are caught, you will jailed and banished from Malaysia forever.

Post here the full page of the passport where the exit stamp is and of any blacklisting notifications.

Or if you are uncomfortable with posting in public, send it to my email address

Received your exit stamp image.

Yes there is a blacklisting "BLI" there.
You left using the Amnesty "Recalibration" which under normal circumstances is a "Lifetime" ban from entering Malaysia = RAI stamp or BLI (5 years).

May I humbly suggest you get the services of a lawyer (in Malaysia or Bangladesh) to make an appeal for you to MY Immigration. Do not waste the years studying online here.

There exist a venue for appeal to come back to continue your studies, but in my personal opinion, your college have done a "incomplete approach". Both EMGS and your college have to work hand in hand to get / produce docs in order to make an appeal to MY IMI. That's why there is no reply from MY IMI. Many others factors are taken into acct too. In the end, it is EMGS that can only bring you back, not your college/uni. Your initial application to EMGS has (usually) expired 6 months from date of application and a new application has to be done. But now you have hit into a BLI blacklisting of which EMGS (a Govt Agency) cannot process.

Do get professional services, do not waste the 2 years of hardwork under lockdown.

No further need to ask further Qs here, your college, EMGS as well as standard immigration officers do not know how answer your Query even your Embassy.




P/S :
All I can say is that your college have made a "graveyard" mistake for accepting your enrolment and continuation of your course when you do not have a student pass in your hands.

Nobody (at that point of time) knew how long this pandemic & lockdown could have lasted. Blame the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Go to sleep with a peaceful mind. 
Personally I believe that it is a rectifiable blacklisting.

now after almost 1.5 years my eval is on process and emgs stated "has highlighted an issue with the individual"

"eval"
Understand these terms which can enable students to understand the immigration process.

The actual term is  "eVAL" . It is Visa Approval Letter.
A Malaysian visa is for the purpose of entering Malaysia.
For those countries which is given "Free Visa upon entry" can be deny entry by Immigration at check points if T&C of entry is not observed. Yes.. there are still T&C for visa-free arrivals. Even with a pre-applied visa can still be deny entry at immigration checkpoints.

Visa is usually applied for from the Malaysian Embassy of the respective countries. It is issued by the Embassy but Immigration is in charge for any "entry" into the country for security reasons. Entry is the turf of the immigration Dept.

Foreigner Students requires a pre-apply eVAL from Immigration just to enter Malaysia.

Foreigner workers needs to apply for a VDR (calling visa in their country) from Immigration just to enter Malaysia.

The purpose is to complete immigration procedures in physical appearance within 30 days of entry.

emgs stated "has highlighted an issue with the individual"
The issue stated as above is that the current application, the applicant have been blacklisted with a "BLI/WM/KLIA" in the passport and cannot process for the student visa as required by laws and IMI policies.

The only solution is to clear the blacklisting.
The blacklisting is on overstay on a Tourist Pass.
It is not an overstay on a Student Pass.

The college Visa Processing Officer is treating it as an overstay for student who has an initial Student Pass and is still inside Malaysia. My personal opinion is that it is not the best approach to resolve this issue.

The appeal (if any) should be based on :

Appeal for re-entry for the purpose of completing my Education

If wrong application terms is used, Immigration Officers may  KIV the file since the applicant is not inside Malaysia or even:


Yes.. the Pandemic Lockdown has caused many immigration issues esp for foreign students in every country.

Make a  proper  Letter of Appeal  direct to DG of Immigration directly to MY IMI HQ in Putrajaya.

Hand serve a hardcopy.
Remember to sign the same signature as in your passport.
