Hi travelite8

I am wonder with the previous posting, which suggest us to print an extra copy of application form when go for submission....since i submit online,then the adobe format application is not suitable for me...so what can i do now?where can i print an extra set of online application form?

Sorry, I am not familiar with the current procedure. If the online application form is different with the adobe form, and if u r not required to submit adobe form during ur appointment, then it is not necessary to make a copy. Since u submit online, i believe they will have it in the database. Any amendments can be done on the spot I suppose(u just have to tell them). Anyway, no harm bringing along a copy of blank adobe form just in case. Hope this helps.

Hi! So Im trying to be extra careful this time! for when my bf applies..

... he has a student pass in singapore (hes not singaporean) and when he applies and IF he gets WHM *touch wood* his student pass will get cancelled till hes back... So he has to re apply for a student pass/visa from london.. to come bak to singapore..so will they think he has no reason to come back as he doesnt even have a visa? although we are tellin his school to say hes allowed permission to go for just a year and hes applying for just a year..

that brings me to my other question,
theres nothing weird about applying for just one year of the WHM visa when 2 is allowed right? because my bf is going in the middle of his course so he can only go for 1 year.. hes taken special permission and allowed by his uni.

Thanks so much!

This is the itinerary that was submitted. When i see it now, it is too vague.. And he wants to go there only for a year now so we'd only make a one yr itinerary. Well here it is:

2008:

August - October :
Spend a couple of months exploring and getting used to the London lifestyle.

Whilst in London, I will definitely be doing the following activities:
5th September : Hay’s Galleria Oyster and Seafood Fair

I have never been to a theatre before and I heard that London is the best place to
catch them. Therefore, I will be taking regular trips to the theaters in West end,
especially the worldly known Lion King Musical.

Camden Town : to see a new culture of people.

Visit ‘Maze Grill’, owned by Gordon Ramsay because I respect him and his
talent tremendously.

October - November:
Do part time jobs in a restaurant to get a feel of how it is like to work in London.

December:
Travel to Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool with friends. But be back in London for
New Years.

31 December : Fireworks on New years at the London Eye, South Bank.

2009:
January - March:
I would find a temporary job which will educate me on the on-goings of a kitchen in
London. Working and learning about different kitchens and restaurants in London
has always been my dream that I do hope to fulfill during this trip.
April - May:
Go to Isle of Wight and possibly Channel Islands - It should be warm then
June - August:
Take a break and go back to Singapore to visit my family.
September - December:
Work temporary jobs. - Find a new cuisine to explore
Take a weekend off in November to go to Brighton.

2010:
January - Feb :
Travel to Lake District
March - May: Work
June: Return to Singapore

So I had a look at your itineary and in your plan it mostly includes London..what about Scotland, Ireland or Wales. This is part of the UK as well. Try to include this in your intineary also as you are able to work in the UK, not just in London. Also, try not to mention to much of the European countries...With my plan, I did a 1 year plan, however my Visa stamped was for 2 years, so perhaps you may want to do a 1 year visa instead even though you will be there for 2 years. Like other posts suggest, buy yourself a Lonely Planet book and do some research on the countries that you want to visit...
Happy to review your itineary if you like..

Hope this helps..!

Dear friends,

I am planning to apply for WHM, I saw that the age requirement is between 17 and 30, however I will be 30 this Oct and planning to travel in Jan if successful. Do you think I still have a chance or should not waste my money and time in applying.
Thanks in advance.

You're qualified. The maximum age is 30 at the time of application. However, a new programme called Tier 5 is expected to be introduced this November, replacing the WHM and a few other similar programmes.
