What I know is the announcement is for both new and exist students. However, as the practice in Malaysia everything should b redone through procedures. Mean, there are some SOP should be issued from the government so the new students can follow. Usually such procedures will take 10 days to 14 days. The government issued the announcement but the implementing departments are now putting the free details, after that they will give the green light for new students to enter. I think this wil be by end of January or mid of February
Yes he did say existing and new. The people here who are saying it’s only for existing are just creating fear and doubt for everyone. We just have to wait for the guidelines that are to be released by immigration/emgs only then can we be certain.
Not to mention that another article had also mentioned that all international students can return to campus. For international schools though, only the ones with visa can. School =/= University. I hope emgs or immigration give us clarity on this subject this week. Praying for a good outcome for all of us 🙂
