I'm leaving to London on 30th. Do you know other than my passport what other documents do I need to bring ? I'll be going with my husband.

haiz... the officers make me so sad...
i got to request the retrieval of passport again as CNY is coming and i got to back to malaysia

why cant they process application from singapore first?
it takes extra time to send passport back to singapore

applicants like me stuck in singapore, cant go anywhere...
i hope it wont affect my application at the end

now i really hope i can get it back on time else i cant go back!!

no news at all, i assumed that i dun have to interview coz i never get any responses since nov 2007
the first time i retrieved back i saw a sticker and small stamp behind the passport

Hi,

Can anyone give an opinion on opening a UK account?

As I have check with Malaysia HSBC, we can open new account of UK with USD200 as a processing fee.

Any idea? or it is better to open a new UK account when we arrive in UK?

Another question:

My visa valid date is 7th Jan 2009 so the expire 7th Jan 2011 (written on the sticker).

But I will leave on end March so my visa date should start count follow on the sticker or follow the 1st day I landed in London?

Anyone can recommend any Logistics and Supply Chain job in London?

Any good price of place to stay in London?

Please share your experience with me as Kate, CP Spring & I will be going to London by end Feb - end March.

Hi
i got a savinga ccount with barclays that give me interest rate and doesnt charge me for opening the account. we need a tenancy agreement or something that proves u are living at the UK address u provided. i had trouble with that coz they dont accept letters from anyone. Fear of fraud. so i had to prove it with a letter with my NI number sent to me by the issuer to that address. appointment letter doesnt count. i also had a current account that gives me no interest for the debit card that they dont charge me for. a bit troublesome to have 2 account but i think it is better than being charged for the usage of card.

there is a hsbc passbook account that u have to pay for every mth and it doesnt pay u interest at all. which is the one they are opening for u,i think. u shld ask more before u open it.

there is a loyds acct. they only need another person who is an existing acc holder at least a yr to introduce u which verify that u r staying at the address ur providing them.

that is all i know.
hope it is helpful for u. and if there is anyone who finds any mistake pls point it out.
