First and foremost, thanks in advance for any and all information.
My gf and I are planning on making a visa run to Penang this Sunday. I've been looking at various websites but I want to make certain I have the correct documents. Are these all the documents I need?
photocopies of passport pages
photocopy of degree
letter from Education Commission
letter of invitation from school
map of school location
The most important human endeavor is the striving for morality in our actions. Our inner balance, and even our very existence depends on it. Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to our lives.
Original degree and transcript?

Unless your cell phone works in Penang, remember to get the phone number of your hotel. If they have an issue with your visa, they will need to be able to get in touch with you. I don't have my original degree and transcript, just a copy and it worked fine for me in Vientiane.

Sorry I don't have any technical stuff to add as I think it's all been covered, but I just wanted to add - have a great time in Penang. I went there for a visa run way back in '05 and I loved it. I couldn't do very much because I was getting over a stomach bug, but I spent three days there and really enjoyed it.
Thought I'd report back.
My gf and I went last weekend and had a great time. Loved the food and architecture in Georgetown. I also found the people very friendly. My only complaint was the expensive beer.
As for the visa we got them.
We planned on using a visa service but decided to go there on our own and save the 60 ringit. The first day we took the bus and walked. We then realized that we had totally backtracked, about 20 minutes, to catch the bus only to go in the direction of our hotel (Grand Inn). So, the next day we walked from our hotel. It took about 25 minutes.
We arrived at 9, filled out our application and handed over our documents. They consisted of, a contract, a copy of our passports, a map of the school, invitation letter of of course the two photos. Nothing else. We went back the next day and picked up our visas.
Anywho, I just thought I'd post the info just in case someone finds it helpful.
As always, thanks for all the info/advice.
Imodium can't stop me.
