Hi all,

I've a question here again *sign*

I've just renewed my malaysia passport, and i've got my WHM Visa in my old passport. Initially i thought they can bind the passport together, who knows they r not doing binding anymore. Anyway, Do you think the officer will kindly transfer the stamp on the new one without any cost? I'm kinda worried.

@Boo Young

No worries, buddy, just take both passports wherever you go. Put them together in a separate pouch (shop for an ideal one), and you can just explain it to the immigration officers when you land.

Thanks, Simon for your inspiring words. It really made me feel better.

Because I was sick yesterday, I took a day off from work. I checked my application around 1pm and no change in status, it said my application was still in process. Then I took a heavy lunch, slept the whole afternoon, and tracked my application at 6pm. The status was "YOUR PASSPORT IS READY FOR COLLECTION AT THE BHC YOU APPLIED."

Arrrrggggghhhhhhh! I now have to go crazy this weekend, bcos VFS is open only from MON-FRI.. and collection time is 5pm-6pm.

Waiting for Monday....

I've checked my application today and it said the same thing as yours...does it mean that they've granted the visa without calling me for an interview?

Hi girlie82,

I wish it was true... but we would never know till Monday comes, right?

Right now, I am not too hopeful... bcos the VFS personnel, when she collected my application forms, told me that these days interview is compulsory for all work-related visas... but i never got any call for interview and now that my application is ready for collection, I am afraid it will be bad news...

I want to be optimistic, but all i can think is - what if they decided not to approve any visas because of the economic crisis in UK now...

God, this is mental torture.... and I have to suffer like this for another 2 days! I wish I had gone yesterday and collected mt passport

writingale, to tell u the truth i'm thinking of the same thing as you. My friend who applied and submitted the forms the same day as me got a call on thursday for interview to be attended somewhere in december. she had called the VFS earlier and they mentioned that nowadays WHM applicants most definitely have to anticipate an interview. i'm not convinced that it's gonna be a good news, well at least not yet....i just hope that i do not have to go through the hassle of having to re-apply/appeal.

well, in my case if the visa is rejected, i don't think i will appeal... bcos i have a good job here, i work at management level in a famous (Indian) magazine... and i am also 29 yrs old, too late I think to experiment again...

so If I don't get it, I'll just accept it as God's will and plan my future in a different way ;)

anyways, let me be more optimistic... all the best to us! :)
