Part Time Jobs in Malaysia for International Students

In this post, we will discuss the available part-time jobs in Malaysia for international students. So, if you are someone interested in the topic, we suggest you read this post until the end.

Agape Education is a leading education consulting agency established in Malaysia for almost 6 years now. We consult global students to migrate to Malaysia from the very beginning until they settle after they land there. Most of the students ask us whether they can do part-time jobs in Malaysia. Our simple answer to that question is yes, students can do part-time jobs in a restricted time frame.

The Malaysian government has allowed international students to do part-time jobs during their semester breaks and holidays for 20 hours per week. As well, they can do these jobs during the semesters for 10 hours per week. Anyhow, there are some jobs that are prohibited for international students.

Some of those prohibited jobs are cashier, accountant, financial manager, etc. Students are not allowed to do any kind of money-related job while also working in gambling-related jobs, nightclubs, or other drug-related jobs. If any student breaks these rules, he or she has to face many troubles where the rules of the country are very strict.

As a student, you should have a valid student pass and a work permit to do a part-time job in Malaysia. You need to submit these documents to the Department of Immigration Malaysia.

1) A support letter from your university

2) Documents from the company you are expected to attend.


So, here we can bring you some of the best and most popular part-time jobs for students:

  • Tutoring
  • Event Staff
  • Customer Service Representative
  • Sales Representative
  • Data Entry Clerk
  • Waiter / waitress
  • Cashier
  • Bartender
  • Social Media Manager

You must note that Agape Education is only an education consulting company, and we won’t suggest or provide part-time jobs for the students. As well, we won’t take responsibility for students if they engage in illegal activities and break the rules of Malaysian law.

As a student, you must take on all the responsibilities of your part-time job, and you must do it according to government rules and laws.
