I just submitted my application online! So relieved!
But now I have a problem. I went to the link for schedule appointment but there are no dates left in July and I can't select any dates. Seems like I can't book any dates in Aug as it only showed July. So what should I do now? Log in everyday until there's an available date on the screen? Is there any chance for me to be appointed in July? Will they email me if there are dates available in end July, when the applications are not so congested like now?

Too bad for you it's the peak season now. If I were you, I'd check the site every day and night to see if there's any opening from cancellation/rescheduling. Who knows? I was in a similar position last year when I applied for my US visa. The date I wanted was full but I kept checking and a few days later, there was an opening for that day.

I think I'm still unsuccessful in my application as I don't even get a chance to do my biometrics!

Will your online application expire after some time? Biometrics will only be done at the centre.

Thanks Hien, I think you are right. I just checked the dates and there's 1 availability but it's 3rd July- today! haha..I can't make it so guess I really have to check every now and then.

Will the online application expires? I have no idea at all! Anyone out there knows? If not I would have to called the officer today and check it out.

Have a Good day everyone.

Thank You Bes & Hien for your answers!

Looking forward to submit the application. I am preparing my travel itinery now. Going to MPH at Mid Valley this weekend to get a travel guide book for the UK! Anyone knows any good ones?

1. My saving account is a joint name account with my mum but the money is belongs to me. Is it alright? I just noticed that i dont have an account under my own name besides FD... Haiya...

2. I think we are still on the old WHM visa and not the new Youth Mobility Tier 5 visa, right? Anyone can confirm? I wonder if they have a max number of visa issue under WHM every year for Malaysian?

3. I planning to book the return ticket from a travel agency and submit together with my application as i need to come back to Malaysia after 10 months in UK as i still have my job commitment here in Malaysia. Can i come back for 2 months then go back to UK again to continue my travel? Anyone have done that?

Thanx a bunch!

Regards,
Linda

I heard if any interview is required, they will inform within 5 working days otherwise process time takes 5 working days only.

In my case, neither I get visa not call for interview.

I think because you're not a Singapore citizen, they will need more time to do some checks and might even have to verify certain things with their counterpart in India. Do they have any number that you can call to enquire about your application?

Hi friend,

Thanks for your message, I also think so..I worked in UAE & visited Malaysia, so they may varify in UAE and Malysia also.

So I think, it will take long time. I cannot do anything, should wait until their call.

Thanks & regards.

Closure of the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme and dates for Youth Mobility Visa announced

At the end of June, the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme closed to all applicants and the Tier 1 visa came into full effect. New information about the Youth Mobility Visa has also been released.

An important transition date has also been announced regarding when the new Youth Mobility Visa (replacing the current working holiday visa) will come into effect. According to information recently published on the Home Office website, the new Youth Mobility Visa will replace the working holiday visa in November this year, which is later than predicted.

For more information about Tier 1 and Tier 5 (Youth Mobility) visas, visit the WORKgateways visa page. Head to our WORKgateways forum to ask your questions and read about other people's visa experiences.

any reason why not working since march and what have you been doing since?
what's in the itinerary?
1450...RM=£200? or £1450...
i think your birth cert is good enough to confirm your father details.
