Finally i got a call today for interview on 19/11/08. Even though still a month to go but i feel so much better because of the certainty.

Hi smilyn, sorry for the confusion...

Well, the ECO will ask you when would you like the visa to commence.. Just let them know when is your prefered date... Not necessary according to the intended entry date written on the application form earlier...

Wish you the best of luck for the coming interview!

Whoever got interview appointment,

My advise:-

1) Dont be panicked
2) If u listed places u wanna visit in the application form, make sure u remember what u wrote. When they ask , tell and elaborate in details. Eg, when saying Liverpool giving details of places....do your research a bit. Then interviewer will feel confident on you.

3) DOnt tell him that u wanna work and say about 10-20 % that i might work.

Good luck!!!!!

sorry guys, can i ask something

let said i m going to apply by end of this year, but my passport expired june 2010, do u guys think that i got to renew my passport as i havent get the approval of the visa?

and also, do we need to submit our SPM cert or Sijil Perhentian Sekolah?

1419. Posted by Jimie79 (Budding Member 5 posts) 8y

About passport which expires, u may renew it at Msian Embassy in London. Sijil thing not really important....

Just bear in mind "WHM is about holidaying" ...therefore u must produce evidence.....showing u genuinely wanna travel no work 100%. So proof your income, saving, sponsor.......list some places to be visited in details, make sure u have know where u wanna live...."accomodation",

Basically its like sitting an exam.....u have to prepare everything ......

hey Jimie

I wonder if we have to remember all places that we write in the document, as I have mentioned many places I would like to visit in UK, but for this coming interview,I just focus on some special places only.I really wonder whether is the ECO will ask one of the places we jot in travel plan,and we have to answer of it?Or we just tell them places we would like to visit most?confuse!!!I could not memorise all the attraction in my plan,because it is more than 50 places!!
