Hi Siva

Did anyone reply on this? Do I have to get the marraige certificate attested by Indian high commission in malaysia?

If so what are the other docs that are required?

Thnx

Hi Siva,

You can do one of the following:

1) If your company is applying for your wife Dependent Visa (DV) Let your wife come here on social visa first, and your company can apply for Dependent Visa once she arrives here but asap (as with Social Visa one can only stay for 30 days in MY). In this case, Malaysian immigration will issue Journey Performed Dependent Visa so that she need not to go back to India and come back.

2) If you are applying for DV on your own the best and cheapest way to do that is like this. First you apply for VDR in your wife name from Malaysian immigration and send that VDR (sealed cover) to your wife. With VDR in hand, she can apply for a DV at Malaysian Immigration in Chennai either directly or through a travel agent. Through travel agent, it takes about 3-4 working days to get DV done in Chennai and fees for this he will charge around INR 4K.
Attached is document associated with this and it is self explanatory.

wish you a happy married life.

[What exactly is this VDR?
I have also recently moved to Malaysia and did the dependent visa for my wife and kids. VDR means Visa with Reference.

There are 2 stages for it.

Stage-1

You need to apply at Malaysia consulate in your local city in India. Provide the pp, 2 photo copies of the pp, 2 PP size photos, your employment visa copy, your pp copy , a covering letter by you addressing the consulate general of Malaysia, your local city and photo copy of marriage certificate. She would also require the invitation letter from MDeC, malaysia(which will be directly addressed to Malaysia high commissioner) and it will be a sealed letter that you have to provide at the consulate office. contact your office HR for this MDeC letter or its process ( in my case, my office HR processed it)

The fees vary from city to city. In Mumbai, I had to pay 1500 per person. This is managed by VFS global. You will get stage 1, single entry dependent visa for your spouse within 2 working days.

Stage -2

Once she comes to Malaysia, she would have 1 month to apply for stage 2. Get your marriage certificate attested at Indian consulate at KLCC. This is also managed by VFS global here. Its on 19th floor of WISMA MCA building, next to petronas tower. Application submission time is 9:30AM to 1 PM. Application fee is MYR 50.50 You will get the attested copy within 3 working days.

Then go with your spouse's pp, the attested copy and your work visa copy and stage -2 stamping will be done within 2 hours. The stage 2 processing will be done most probably in Putrajaya.

Contact me if you have any issues.

Hi, I know this thread is old, but I also need some info regarding visas to Malaysia. I am presently living in the U.K. but would like to relocate to Malaysia. Do you know how easy or difficult it is to get a student visa, with this visa am I able to work and can it be changed to a work visa? I just thought because you are already there you could perhaps be the right person to ask questions.
Please help.
Thanks in advance

They just changed the visa rules, so you will want to contact the embassy in London. They are cracking down on student visas and workers here illegally using them...

Thanks thewitt, I did call the Embassy but they say I have to get the College where I want to study to do the visa for me. The only problem is that I want to do a Pastry and Bakery course, with the passport I;m holding I can get a 3 month visa on arrival, thats fine, but the problem is I cannot go on a placement on a Tourist visa. Anyway thanks for your time

Dependent visa in Malaysia

You have tow major options.

1. a marital option--quit job in India after you receive DP then leave for Malaysia, then apply for job.
2. a financial option: apply for job, accept an offer then go to Malaysia

Both have risks. Option 1 might be wiser.

Is your subject matter expertise unique to a certain industry? If yes, both will be fine.

If not, option 2 might not work. Malaysian recruiters might not refer your resume forward to the next stage. Prospective local employers might not interview and accept a candidate based on a teleconference (not face to face) then wait a lengthy WP process to be approved before you start work

Have you applied?
