Before you leave checklist


Before heading to Malaysia and IBAE, make sure you’ve:

  • received your Student Pass approval letter
  • obtained an entry visa, as required if you’re from certain countries
  • booked your flight and have your ticket and passport
  • returned your airport-arrival form (which we’ll send you) to IBAE and understand the airport-arrival process
  • booked and received confirmation of your chosen accommodation
  • made copies of all important documents to bring in your hand luggage, including:
    • letter of offer from IBAE
    • Student Pass approval letter
    • passport details page
    • other formal identification, such as an international driver’s license and/or home country driver’s license (optional)
    • proof of travel insurance

It is important to keep these documents with you throughout your stay in Malaysia. We also suggest that you put second copies in your suitcase and leave third copies at home with your family.

Health check and insurance

After you accept your offer, we take out health insurance for you, which you need to study in Malaysia, and after you arrive, we help you get a health check, which you need to have your Student Pass endorsed.

So make sure you understand the health check and insurance requirements before you leave.

And familiarize yourself with the airport-arrival process to enjoy a hassle-free arrival.
