Malaysia to issue new I-Cards for foreign students

July 2014, 01
EMAIL  Print A+

The government of Malaysia has decided to issue identification cards for overseas students to manage them better in the nation. They can also utilize this card as a valid travel document in Peninsular Malaysia.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister of Education, has introduced the new I-card which will be issued by Immigration Department of Malaysia beginning from 1 July 2014.

The card consists of a photograph and biographical information of each student which includes passport number and data about enrolled educational institution.

Muhyiddin said that the card’s validity period is subjected to duration of student’s academic course which can be prolonged if students are willing to pursue their higher studies in the country. 

In order to generate nationwide equality, it is expected that this card will be extended to the neighboring Sarawak and Sabhas in making a record of the international students’ details. At present, the card is not accepted in these regions as the immigration laws are different from that of Malaysia. The overseas students who hold new I-Card are not required to carry their passports while moving between the regions.

The Minister of Education expects the educational institutions to administer the I-Card issuance process including students’ acquirement of their credentials within a day to coordinate with the application process of overseas passports.
