Hi,

I would like to know about the online booking schedule which I couldn't book a date for the interview since september until now. I also would like to aaply for the WHM visa and have walked in to the Bristish High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, but they told me to book an online seat. So, do anyone know that how to book for a date? What can I do? I must travel to UK this coming 6 November 2008, so can anyone please help me in this? If the dates are not available, do you have other way for me to submit my application form? I hope that someone can helpo me in this. PLEASE...

I hope to hear from your kindly reply soon. Thank you so much.

Regards,
Wendy

She only asked me when i want the visa to starts and says that i would be able to pick up my passport on Thursday at VFS.

Hi Ingyn,

about the question asked by the ECO, is it possible for us to ask for the visa to start later than the date indicated in our application form?

i'm starting to fret now as i haven't heard of any news from the visa office. i have the feeling that i might have to attend the interview... :(

The lady ECO was friendly but i am not 100% sure whether she is giving me the visa or not as she doesnt mentioned or said that ' I will give you the visa ' She only asked me when i want the visa to starts and says that i would be able to pick up my passport on Thursday at VFS.

Has anyone failed to get a visa after interview? Did they tell you that your visa can also be collected although they refuse the visa?

Hmm... i am not sure if i will be getting my visa ... anyone in my situation before?

They will tell you on the spot whether they are granting you the visa. I think you must have missed what she said or misunderstood it for something else. Another possibility, which I think is very unlikely, is that she forgot to say that she's giving you the visa. Since she asked you when you wanted the visa to start, that means you got it. Otherwise, why bother asking you that question, right? And if she were denying you the visa, she would have had explained to you why she did that.

Hi,

Did anyone put in your application on 30th September 2008? Please ... Please update ur application status by email me (using a send message tools) as I feel stressful and the waiting time is killing me!!! I been thinking and thinking of many possibility of my application… (What if I got it, when I will leave from Malaysia? How to sell my car & house? How to tell my boss? How to tell my fren that Im gonna to leave them for 2 years?) (What if I fail, How to appeal? How to reapply? Where to find the appeal info?) etc etc…

Today will be the 9th day of my WHM visa application. No call no news yet. I track the status everyday and it appears the same thing:

“Your application is still being processed. Please avoid calling/emailing the Application Centre or the High Commission for an update. The website will be updated as soon as the documents are ready for collection. Your visa application has been forwarded to the British High Commission on 30 Sep 2008."

-->> It means I MUST wait and I can not call or email to ask them..... (Otherwise they will feel annoying, because they don't have enough staff and some of them are in ill condition ???- refer to "Hien Post # 1339").... so what to do, tml I will go temple to pray hard again, and ask God to help me by speeding up the waiting time lol... Uhhhh.... I don't want to be Richard Marx "Right Here Waiting For You"....

Those who apply on early September still no news? At least I got Smilyn in contact... The rest of the WHM buddy, please don’t feel shy, let's update each other application status.

I think no worries, they will let us know soon as they are holding our passport :)

just hope for the best ;)

Hello there ,

I want to enquire . When filling in the online application.
What do you guys actually fill in the Other Information Section ? Because I'm currently stuck there, wondering what to fill in .

thanks a lot !!!

Hello all,

I read this thread religiously. I know I shouldn't be writing in here but I thought this would calm you guys abit if not much.

I applied for a Settlement Visa (Spouse) on 15th September 2008. I didn't apply online but I did book an appointment slot beforehand. According to VFS and the High Comm, Settlement Visa's processing time is 12 weeks (approx 90 days).

Good news I got my visa on the 10th October 2008. It only took 25 days. No interview whatsoever. But I think that is because I've been interviewed by the High Comm 2 years back. This is my 3rd visa application (all granted), hence I know what should be included in my paperwork.

Anyways, I know the waiting is killing everyone. Just be patient and think positive. If your application is refused, find out why, appeal and prove them wrong. Trust me, visa refusal isn't the worst thing that can happen to you. I have been deported from UK once with no reason. I was stranded in airports for 4 days (no shower, no phone, no bed, no money - they took my stuff away). My husband had to spend more than £2k to hire a lawyer and fight for his residency against the Home Office.

Not cool.

No refund, but you can appeal.
