btw, wish you luck :)

i was log in to the vfs website on 19/sept on about midnight.i was lucky that the october appointment was open.
i was happy when seeing the date is available for oct,and str8away book for the appointment.
however its not open the whole month.the only available dates i saw is only on 8/10 and 9/oct.[/quote]

FYI. end of OCT they would change the scheme. i think i would apply Tier 5, anybody have the same plan?

i've heard there is certain people have grab many slots at once just for fun.. please don't do this, maybe it's just a little fun for you, but there is the great hope for others.
anybody who doesn't really want to apply please leave it to others lar.

and For the person who really joining WHM, wish you guys good luck :)

I had submited my application on 3rd of September, but untill now I do not get any news from VFS. I really wonder if anyone who submit the form on the date or earlier than me,has had facing the same problem as me?

Hi deniseong, just want to check with you if you have any news from VFS yet?

Actually,I have called vfs laz friday and he told me tat i ve to attend an interview on next month.Sigh...wat abt u?when do u submit ur form?

I submit mine on 12 september. Haven't got any result yet too. Maybe is still early as the officer told me have to wait at least 7 working days to 30 working days. But i read here that some ppl here got it earlier in below 7 working days. About your case, why is that you the one call them and then only they tell you about the interview? Aren't they the one suppose to call you earlier to let you know about interview? Neway, you got called to interview at least still got a chance there. Wish you a very good luck. When is your plan date to UK?

I think this month s peak time for student visa,as the uk uni intake is on september,so i think their current processing time is more than 7 days.I ever called VFS after 1 week i submit the form,but he say still under process,then on 11th day i called again, and the guy officer told me that he just received the latest update for my application.He told me he supposed called me later,but i called them already...thats y lo....

Hi

I would like to ask. If i applied for an WHM visa online, however am not able to book an appointment online. And Tier 5 also have been introduced, what happens? Will I still be able to hold on to my existing WHM visa and wait for an appointment

or

would my exisiting WHM application be invalid once Tier 5 is introduced in November 2008?

the online application doesn't mean anything. which means it's not really an visa application. it's just a tool for you to fill in your particulars in online form and get it printed only.

anyhow also, you still have to make an appointment to submit the printed forms and documents. i'm not sure bout the tier 5 thingie. but just try vfs everyday to get an appointment. they may have opening sometimes.

thanks katopunk. since its so difficult to get an appointment online, do you think its better i head down to the place itself and submit my documents? do u think it'll be faster that way? have anyone personally went to the embassy to submit your documents directly without an appointment? hows the queue like(in sg)?

according to their site, if you are still holding WHM visa while the new scheme introduce, and you already in their country, you just need to re-enter the country again with the WHM.. i dunno how true it is.. js key in "tier 5" and search in google, u would get some info that u want to know.

What i know is.. the help center wouldn't tell anything if the new scheme doesn't announce officially.. unless there are someone working in the UK immigration willing to "share" some info with us~

Glad i stumbled upon this forum, its been helpful for my WHM application. Thank You guys!

Just had my visa appointment today. Surprisingly i just handed in my document and did the scanning of my fingerprint. NO interview! or any sort of questions about my travel. Do not know whether that is a good indication.

I believe they are really restricting the number of applicants and appointments, moreover today's STAR malaysian newspaper highlighted the high amount of malaysian overstaying in UK illegally, which puts malaysian in a bad light

Well just praying hard that my application will be approved, if not i have to go through the hassle of appealing.

Btw i am planning to leave to UK, around mid - end of Dec. Erm.. don't think i would mind accompanying anyone who is going alone.

how is the process? you get ur number, hand in your application and then scan your finger print?

usually.. they would only call u for the interview after few days of the application.
for my knowledge.. not on the spot.
