4. Travel pass apply (Student Pass)

Ones you get the EMGS Visa Approval Letter (VAL) you are ready to fly.

Next, you have to apply for your travel visa (Normally issued from the home countries Malaysian Embassy). It is just a single entry visa to enter to Malaysia. In general Ones your travel pass issued you have to fly to Malaysia from the issued date to within 90 days. This travel pass will require some documents as well, depends on which country citizen you are. I am giving the basic documents list below that required for travel pass:

a. Your original Passport

5. Get your Air ticket

Ones you get the Travel Pass from your local embassy It’s time to Fly, Select a date and get your favorite airlines Confirmed return air ticket. There are several options to choose from. Of course, your country airlines is a choice but you may choose Malaysian Airline to adopt the Malaysian test from your first Step. There is budget airlines also available like Air Asia. But I prefer to choose a good airline who will give you at last 30KG of baggage and Food for free. 🙂

The day you fly to Malaysia you MUST need to inform your College/University your Airline name, departure and landing time, Flight Number so someone from the college/university can go to airport and pick you from the immigration. (here I want to tell you a little about the Malaysian airports. Sometimes people do this mistake. there are two international airports in Kuala Lumpur and both of them are side by side. the Main Airport name is KLIA or Kuala Lumpur International Airport and another one name is KLIA2 or Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2. Most of the big airlines like Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Emirates Land in KLIA and all the budget airline like AirAsia land in KLIA2. So make sure about this and tell your University exactly which airport you are going to land so the person from the college/university can go and pick yo up from the right place). Ok Back to topic, Ones you land to the Malaysia Airport (KLIA or KLIA2) you must wait inside the immigration. You can’t go out without your college/university representative. The College/University representative will Print your name and Country in a paper and look for you. If you landed at night just say 3:00am Some College/university representative may not arrive to pick you up at that time. you have to wait until morning. Ones the office hour starts, a representative will go and pick you up.

For your information If you proceed the  visa application with us No matter what time you arrive, we will arrange the immigration clearance and airport pickup at that time. This is an exclusive facility we give to our clients to make them a big smile 😀

Yes, it’s kinda far and the Taxi service will charge you approximately RM100 to RM120 in regular hour. If it’s after midnight add extra 50% with the base price. If you use Public transport you can take Bus or KLIA Express Train to Kl Sentral. For bus the Price is around RM10-15 and express train is RM55.
