At GEMS International School, Tropicana Metropark, we also welcome International/ Foreign students. They will, however, be required to have either a valid STUDENT PASS
or a valid PERMISSION TO STUDY
endorsement while studying with us. This is a requirement by the Malaysian Immigration. Permanent Residents of Malaysia (PR) and Residence Pass Holders are exempted.
Guidelines for Student Pass Application
All International Student Visa and/or Guardian Pass applications can only be processed if they are accompanied by:
- All necessary required documents listed in the International Student Application checklist form together with any other document(s) required by the Admissions Office of GEMS.
- The International Student Visa and/or Guardian Pass application service fee/s which is/are non-refundable.
- The service fee is applied only once for each successful applicant. It is applicable and payable at the same rate should the first application be rejected for whatever reason(s) and a second application is requested by the parent.
- A service fee for the renewal of the Student’s Visa and/or Guardian Pass on expiry is also payable (when needed) and is also non-refundable if the application is rejected for whatever reasons.
- If the applicant is currently studying at another international school in Malaysia, a copy of the passport page with the current student visa/pass is required. Applicants must cancel their current student visa/pass with their former school BEFORE they can apply for a new one. Student visa/ pass from a previous international school in Malaysia are NOT transferable. Failure to comply with this ruling will affect the student’s stay in Malaysia.
The student’s passport must be kept valid for the duration of the student’s stay and for travel purposes. Maintaining a valid passport and the appropriate visa for the student is the responsibility of Parents.
GIM will not accept the passports of students with an EXPIRED Social Visa, Special Pass, Dependent Pass, MM2H Visa or Student Pass from a previous school.
GIM will not be held responsible for parents or students who overstay in Malaysia, even though you may have registered with us. Students with expired visas will be advised to approach the Department of Immigration on their own accord to settle their overstay issues.
