Student visa abuse: Immigration to keep eye on learning institutions, language centres

THE STAR


CYBERJAYA: The Immigration Department today said it will monitor learning institutions in the country, as part of an effort to curb abuse of student visas.
Its director-general Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali said the department was aware that student visas were being misused by those who entered the country as students but were actually working for crime syndicates.
"We will be keeping a close watch on some of the educational institutions here, especially private language centres.
"Checks at several language centres in the country showed that many students who were enrolled at these centres were linked to prostitution and gambling rings, among others. Action is been taken against the centres involved.
"They (the 'students') are tarnishing the name of the country. These institutions must also play a more proactive role by closely monitoring their students, such as their attendance," he told a press conference at the Education Malaysia Global Services (EGMS) here today.
Mustafar warned that learning institutions and language centres found to be operating illegally as "recruitment centres" will be dealt with in accordance to the law.
Meanwhile, to tackle the issue of delay in issuing student visas, Mustafar said a task force has been set up to handle the matter following a high-level committee meeting on Jan 19.
"Twenty-four officers were added to the existing six personnel to speed up the process.
"During the meeting (which was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi), it was also decided that all student visa applications must be processed within 14 days.
"Malaysia aims to become a major education hub in Asia. We have to better manage all applications for international student visas and prevent long delays." he added.
