Malaysia joins the list of low-risk countries whose nationals applying for a Tier 4 student visa will benefit from a streamlined UK visa application process.
Under the streamlined process eligible applicants will generally not be expected to provide documentary evidence of financial maintenance and education qualifications, making the application process simpler and easier.
However please note that Malaysians, like nationals of all countries, will still need to meet the requirements in the immigration rules and students must be able to provide the appropriate documents if exceptionally requested.
You are therefore advised to hold these documents and in addition, take these documents with you when you travel to the United Kingdom.
A TB certificate from an approved clinic is required for submission with the visa application.
