It still sounds difficult to me.

I have known a person who is rejected due to its not detailed itinerary.

I dunno what is the 'details' they need.

So i would love sum 1 who d have their visa 2 borrow me his/her itinerary so that i can make full preparation towards applying the visa. thank you

You don't know what details they need? In my reply, I've given you a guide on what to include. What is so difficult?

About your friend, are you sure the reason of the rejection is solely because of the itinerary? I'm sure it's more than that--read the rejection letter. For your info, in my travel plan, I had only listed the places I wanted to visit, nothing else!

I hope you're not trying to take the easy way out by asking for a 'sample' and then copy the travel plan.

frankly speaking, i am just being afraid of getting rejected, coz i put down everything to make this thing possible.

the person is my friend's friend. he told my friend that the officer said his itinarery plan is not detail enough. I dun think i can get the reject letter from him as my friend said they have not been contacting each other for a long time.

anyway, tq for the reply. I will try to figure out myself.

Another question here, do we need any other type of visa or documentation if we want to travel to the other countries of europe> o the WHM visa is enough for all visits?

tq;)

Q : How are you going to support them while you are traveling?(means youparents)
A : Since they alreadyhave their own job and won saving, I think there is no any financial problem evenI leaving Malaysiafor 18 months (My travel plan is 18 months).

Q : Why do you want to go to UK orwhat’s inspiring you to go there?
A : Is my dreams! Ialways dream of traveling cum working after I graduated from university 4 yearsago. And I set it as a target to be reach before age of 30. Currently I thinkis the best time to let my dreams come true, since I still single, just 28years old, consider as young, not yet married, no have children, no have familyburden and no have any job commitment in this stage, IS THE TIME TO LET MYDREAMS COME TRUE. Is the time to open my mind by exploiting myself through thedifferent nation in UK.Because of these reasons, I start to sketch out my travel plan at the beginningof this year, I used a few month to search Uk ionfo from internet, ask opinion from my friends in UK, bought a travel guide to know more about UK, finally I successto drawn up my 18 months travel plan.

Hi there... I've questions...

If I got the WHM visa, & gone to UK for 2 months later I wish to come bk M'sia for few months then bk to UK, can I do this?? Or, if I've been to UK for few months & wish to travel to others places like thailand, singapore, etc. then bk to UK can I do that??

Its just an example not really been to UK 2 months ok... Just an example only! Not exactly 2 months maybe 1 yr / 6 months but my main point is once I get the WHM visa, as I know we must go within 3 mths therefore I'll leave within 3 months but later I want to go other places also can I do tat?? Maybe back M'sia for some celebration / emergency cases...

Thanks ;)

For your information, the vfs officer told me that it is not necessary for us to leave in 3 months time,you can leave at anytime as you like, even a month before the expiry date.This is the information I go through with a vfs guy officer at the time i submit my form.

A friend's friend, so it's only a hearsay and you don't have the full account of the story. Unless it's been changed since my application exactly a year ago, a travel plan is not a requirement for the application, so there must be something else that didn't satisfy the officer who handled the application and interview.


Another question here, do we need any other type of visa or documentation if we want to travel to the other countries of europe> o the WHM visa is enough for all visits?

The WHM visa is issued by the UK, so how can this be valid for other European countries?

Anyway, about visiting Europe, you don't need a visa for most countries. Read this article: Schengen visa

For all of you out there, birth certificate is not necessary! Your passport is already a proof that you're a citizen.

Education certificates are not essential either. You're not applying for a student visa or even a job. So far, people I know who got the WHM visa did not provide them in their application.

And I don't know how the membership cards are going to help convince them to grant you the visa.
