Any legitimate child of a Malaysian citizen aged 7 and below can apply for the LTSVP.
Forms: Form 12, Form 38. Both of these forms can be downloaded from https://www.imi.gov.my/portal2017/index.php/ms/pas.html?id=272 or collected in person from your local Immigration Office as per the Malaysian parent’s IC address.
Supporting documents: Photocopy of all pages of your child’s passport that has any stamps/ visas; 2 passport-sized photographs (blue background) of your child; photocopy of child’s Birth Certificate verified by Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) or your respective Embassy; photocopy of parent’s IC verified by JPN; photocopy of the parents marriage certificate verified by JPN (for Malaysian-registered marriages) or verified by your respective Embassy (for overseas-registered marriages); photocopy of foreign parent’s passport (just the front page and any Malaysian visas)
Note: Please have the originals of your documents on the day of submission and please ensure your documents that are not available in English are translated into English and verified by your respective Embassy.
This is dependent on your local Immigration Office as they have the discretion to seek further proof/ evidence in any application. There have been cases where Malaysian mothers could apply for their child’s LTSVP without the foreign husband’s presence (so only the husband’s passport photocopy was presented without the original) and there have been cases where the foreign parent was requested to be present. It would be advisable to check with your Immigration Office on their requirements beforehand and provide a valid reason as to why the foreign parent is unable to be present if requested.
The child will then need to apply for a Student Pass instead of a LTSVP.
