He added that these students will not have to obtain approval from the immigration department. Swab tests will either be conducted at the entrance of our country or at the departure of their country.

However, the students MUST register with the Education Ministry and Higher Education Ministry and the Immigration Department will have a list to cross-check at Malaysian airports. If these students are coming from a green-zone country, they won’t be required to self-quarantine. But, other than that, they will be required to self-quarantine in their Malaysian homes.

Whoever entering the country must download the MySejahtera app.
