Why open a bank account?

It is advisable to open a bank account whilst you are studying in Malaysia. It is the safest and most convenient way of managing your finances and enables you to:

  • avoid carrying cash with you or keeping large amounts of money in your room
  • ease financial transactions made with the banks in your home country

How do I open a bank account?

To open a bank account in Malaysia you will need the following:

  • the "Letter of Opening a Bank Account" issued by the International Office to confirm your status as a student in Malaysia
  • Original Passport
  • Minimum deposit: Must be in Ringgit Malaysia (RM) around RM250 – RM300
  • If you are under 18 years old, you will need an indemnity form signed by your parents and witnessed by the relevant authority from your home country
