Hi , i am from Malaysia. and i would like to share my experience here as i returned passport to vfs last few days.

I wrote email ( in official format ) to vfs , mentioned :
1. Request to collect passport by XXX ( date ) . When & where i need to travel , reason ( business trip )
2. Attached scan copy of invitation letter from supplier ( saying I am pleased to submit original Invitation Letter if required. )
3. Promise i will return passport by XXX ( date )
4. Details of my WHM application for reference.
Type of Visa Applied: UK Working Holiday Maker
Application Reference Number:
Applicant Name:
Passport Number:

Then i call vfs to follow up everyday , telling my attendance is compulsory for the business trip..
BHC took around 5 working days to proceed for my case. Finally i not miss out my business trip. Thanks vfs officer help to follow up closely with BHC.

I guess BHC will take consideration to release passport for business trip. But i am not sure if you request for personal travel. Just call & check vfs. They help me lots.

FYI. i never receive any reply email from vfs / BHC. Vfs officer told me they will call me if request being approved. No calls mean no news yet, yet , i still call to vfs everyday until i get passport.

When i collect passport at BHC , i just need to print out my request email & show to guard ( a nice woman ) & wait outside. After 10min , i get my passport back. ;)

Hi to all,

Its nice to read this forum, its very interesting and full of information if one
wants to apply as a WHM. Well, I read people sharing there experiences and
cases in this forum, so I thought let me share my case also. So here it
goes. Well, I applied for WHV on 28th of October but I am yet to get
reply. Its been more than 30 working days. I have not recieved any news or
call from them. I did call them after 30 days but vfs officer asked me to
wait as the application is still under process. Does anyone have any
idea what should be the case? why are they taking so long?
