Easier for foreign students to get visas

The foreign students e-Visa Approval Letters (e-VAL) system is up and running, says Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGS), a wholly-owned company of the Higher Education Ministry.

In a statement, EMGS CEO Prof Datuk Dr Rujhan Mustafa said this would allow international students to obtain visas through its STARS’ portal.

“A total of 277,000 complete applications were received between 2013 and 2017,” Prof Rujhan said.

“These were processed and the VALs were issued within seven working days, thanks to the support and teamwork of the Immigration Department.

Yesterday, the company hosted the Education Malaysia Industry Townhall 2018 meeting with 180 international education heads from higher education institutions, skills centres and language schools.

It was held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

Participants were briefed on operational updates related to the visa application. An open dialogue on issues at hand was held in addition to introducing the line-up of newly appointed Education Malaysia directors for its offices in Chicago, Dubai, Jakarta and Ho Chi Minh City.
