PETALING JAYA: A “student visa for sale” operation is making it easy for many foreigners to do everything else but study in Malaysia.
For a fee of between RM500 and RM1,000 paid to a middleman, the foreigners can obtain or renew their student visas without going to the Immigration authorities, according to those in the know about the operation.
Instead of attending classes, the foreigners operate businesses, such as trading in car spare parts and offering beauty services, while many others are involved in vice.
There are about 110,000 foreign students in the country, and about 30,000 of them attend six-month courses, mostly in technical skills.
Other developments:
> Action will be taken against these foreign students if the authorities find out that they are involved in criminal activities or caused problems in the community, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein;
Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin said the ministry usually dealt with higher learning institutions which would report students suspected to be abusing their student visas;
> Immigration director-general Datuk Alias Ahmad warned that those found abusing the student visas would be blacklisted and barred from entering the country.
