What is an iKad?


The iKad is an identification card for foreign students and can be used as a means of identification in Peninsular Malaysia. The iKad will only be issued after the Student Pass is endorsed in the passport. Please note that the iKad is not a replacement travel document.


Each iKad will contain the following information:


  1. 1. Student Photograph


  2. 2. Passport Number


  3. 3. Nationality of the student


  4. 4. Name of the student’s Institution


  5. 5. Duration of the Student Pass


How do I apply for an iKad?


The application for the iKad will be done at the time the new Visa Approval Letter application or Renewal application is made. A fee of RM50 is included in the application fees.


What happens if I lose or damage my iKad?


In the event that the iKad is lost or damaged, the following fees will apply:


  • For Lost/Damaged iKad (1st request) – RM150
  • For Lost/Damaged iKad (2nd request for the same student) – RM300
  • For Lost/Damaged iKad (3rd request for the same student) – MYR 500
  • very subsequent loss/damage of iKad (after damaging/losing it 3 times) for the same student – MYR500 each request

Important :
