For all future graduates and graduates from overseas universities, I hope that this post will be of help to you.
These are the things you should do to apply for HO.

Check whether your university degree is recognized.

After graduation, apart from your basic medical degree and transcript, be sure that you have the offer letter from your university (offer letter to study), the results of exams for every semester and other relevant documents. Translate any of the above mentioned into English if it is not in English.

After my graduation convo, I applied for SPA interview online by filling in the Borang SPA 8i Online.
Use the following link:

The Borang Spa 8i Online and all the guidelines on filling in are available in the above link. Then check the status of your application after 3 days later (usually 3-7 days laters) at
After a week, my application was approved.
Then call this number 03-8885 6338 begin_of_the_skype_highlig

hting 03-8885 6338 end_of_the_skype_highlighting (Cik Zamzarina / En. Anuar) to book a date for your interview. Cik Zamzarina is a very helpful and patient lady. Thank you so much for your help n advises.

When you reach home, go to Putrajaya to collect all the application forms.
These are the government offices n departments that you need to go in Precint 1, Putrajaya:
1. MMC-Malaysian Medical Council in complex E
Malaysian Medical Council
Level 2, Block E1, Parcel E, Precinct 1,
Federal Government Administrative Centre
62590 Putrajaya.

2. MOH-Ministry of Health in complex E

Bahagian Sumber Manusia, Unit Pengurusan dan Profesional,

3. SPA-Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Awam in complex C

03-8885 6338 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 03-8885 6338 end_of_the_skype_highlighting (Cik Zamzarina)

Precinct 1 in Putrajaya is actually a roundabout and there are complexes in which ministries and governtment offices are located.

So, you start with MMC which is located on Level 2, Block E1 and collect the Form 4, Provisional Registration Form.
Application for Provisional Registration:
Applicants need to submit the following documents:
Form 4 of the Medical Act 1971 for Provisional Registration application form;
• 2 passport size photos;
• A Certified copy of Basic Medical Degree
• A Certified copy of your transcript encompassing the results of whole training period
• A Certified copy of ‘Bonafide Student Certificate’ – Applicable only to graduates from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh
• A Certified copy of Identity Card or passport;
• A Certified copy of birth certificate;
• A Certified copy of SPM/MCE or equivalent;
• A RM20 processing fee by money/postal order payable to The Registrar Medical Practitioner
Apart from the documents above, the following documents need to be submitted:
Local graduates:
• The original Dean’s letter
Overseas graduates:
• For graduates from Indian institutions – A Certified copy of Bonafide Student and Rotating Internship;
• For graduates from Indonesian institutions – A Certified copy of Sarjana Kedokteran and Ijazah Kedokteran;
This where you can also download the Form 4 and guidelines on filling the form.

After that proceed down the street to MOH on Level 9, Blok E7 and collect the BMD, Borang Maklumat Diri. You’ll go across the department to Bahagian Sumber Manusia, Unit Pengurusan dan Profesional. Too bad that there’s no internet link where you can download the BMD.

The next step is document verification. Open and follow the guidelines in this pdf link:
My advice is to certify 5 copies (the more the better/merrier, of course) of I/C, Surat Beranak, SPM, Basic Medical Degree, Transcript and other relevant documents. One more advice is to certify every side even though if it is not in English.

The last step is handing in the application forms.
Hand-in the application forms personally after you have certify everything. Please do not send by post because it will pass through a few departments and it will be in the destined department eg. MMC, one week later after the date of receiving.
