PUTRAJAYA: Foreign students planning to study in Malaysia will have to postpone their travels until Dec 31, says Immigration director-general Datuk Khairul Dzaimee Daud.
He said the interim restriction would also affect foreign students who had already received approval from the department to come to Malaysia.
“The postponement is in line with the decision by the Higher Education Ministry to delay registration of students as well as physical classes in higher learning institutions, ” Khairul Dzaimee said in a statement yesterday.
He said the department understands the ministry had contacted airline companies to allow international students to reschedule their flights.
On Friday, the Higher Education Ministry said that higher education institutions should carry out their registration processes for the new semester online.
The ministry said this should also include all teaching and learning activities, in light of the recent spike in Covid-19 cases across the nation.
