It is necessary for the students to have health cover during the your study tenure in Malaysia. You will be insured from the date you enter Malaysia if you inform your institution of the date as soon as you arrive.
An international student, through his/her educational institution, can opt to either one of the following health covers offered by
- Etiqa Family Takaful Berhad (EFTB)
- Great Eastern Takaful Berhad (GETB)
- The Pacific Insurance Berhad (TPIB)
The insurance package provided meets the minimum coverage requirements set out by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE).
Students are reminded that it is compulsory for them to have a valid health insurance plan throughout the period of study. International students whose insurance cover period expires prior to the expiry of their existing student pass are required to top up/extend their insurance. This top up/extension should be sufficient to cover the period up to the expiry of their existing student pass or a maximum of 12 months from the insurance start date, whichever is lower.
