Student Visa
Cancellation of student visa after completing the course

New MessageStudent Visa (modified 0 times) Rose
Hi, will a person be able to keep staying in Malaysia legally until his student visa will expire? His visa will expire many months after completing his course. How many months at maximum will he be able to stay after completing his course? He knows he won't get the foreign student bond back from the immigration if he won't cancel his visa and go back.

It seems that some people don't understand written English well, so I have to write in very easy way.

There's a man.
He's a foreigner studying in Malaysia.
His course will finish in May 2008.
His student visa will expire in January 2009.
According to the rule practised in universities and colleges in Malaysia, a foreign student must apply for cancellation of his student visa some time before completing his course; otherwise the immigration doesn't return Foreign Student Bond he paid in the beginning.

The question is "Will he able to keep staying in Malaysia until January 2009?"

your friend can keep staying in M'sia under his student visa, but he's not allowed to work under this visa though he'd finished his courses.
normally immigration would issue visa perios according to his course study period.
he must be "lucky" to have extra 8months visa to stay.
the purpose to have his student visa canceled upon finishing his courses, is to send him back to his country rather than mis-use the purpose of student visa.

Rose, you certainly have a good sense of humour. I can guess what you are trying to say. Honestly, I find understanding my neighbour's kid easier.

The visa has stated the validity period and its terms, such as prohibition of employment. The Immigration department is the authority in this matter, and NOT of the education institution. A possible explanation on the institution's request to have the visa ready for termination before the course end is for its own administrative convenience. It is common sense to expect the refund of the visa security deposit be refunded only after its cancellation.
