Entry Restrictions for Students from Selected Countries

​Dear students,

 

Updates: Existing international students from banned countries allowed to enter Malaysia

 

In an effort to curb the spread of Covid-19, the Malaysian Government previously announced that students from countries recording more than 150,000 cases of Covid-19 were banned from entering Malaysia effective 7 September. This list of countries, totalling 23 countries currently (listed below), may continue to expand in the coming days.  


Kindly note that the Malaysian Government will continue monitoring the Covid-19 situation in other countries and may impose the same restrictions on citizens of other countries that are recording a spike in Covid-19 cases.

In an update on 17 September, the Malaysian Government has reviewed the previous decision and is now allowing existing students from banned countries to enter Malaysia.

The categories of international students who are allowed entry into Malaysia are:

  • Existing students with a valid student pass who are outside Malaysia; and
  • Existing students whose student pass has expired from 1 February onwards, and is currently outside Malaysia

 

*Entry for all new International students is on hold until further notice.

For more information and step-by-step guidance on how to initiate your reentry into Malaysia, please refer to the announcement on Campus Central titled ‘Updates on SOP: Back to campus movement (international students)’ dated 18 September 2020. You may also contact the Student Welfare and International Office department at internationaloffice@taylors.edu.my if you have any queries.

On that note, be assured that you may still access all classes via e-learning in TIMeS (learning management system) until further notice. Please log on to your module sites via TIMeS for information about teaching, learning and assessment online. 

We understand that many questions remain, do email us at campuscentral@taylors.edu.my or WhatsApp at +6011 5699 3387. We will continue to provide updates as they are made available.

 

Above all, stay safe and connected. We will all get through this, together.

 

Sincerely, 

 

Professor Michael Driscoll
Vice Chancellor and President
