Dear all,

I have obtained my UK WHM visa in Jan '09 and have been offered a job in UK (9-12months contract). I am expected to commence work on 20 April and the company is located at Poyle, Berkshire (SL3 0ER). I am currently looking for a place to stay around that area or if anyone could recommend a hostel nearby.

Appreciate your reply.

Thanks & Best Regards,

Joanna

I got my WHM visa and leaving for UK in April, planning to come back in Feb2010 for 2-3 weeks then returning to UK again. I am figuring out whether they will forbid me from returning to UK if i barely travel in the 1st year. Will they check on my passport?

The working holidaymaker scheme has been closed on 26 November 2008. It's been replaced by the new Youth Mobility Scheme, of which Malaysia is NOT a participating country.

The visa is a multiple entry one. As long as you don't break any immigration rules or other laws in the UK, you'll have no problem coming back in. As for checking your passport for evidence of you travelling, they do not do that and even if they want to, there's no way to check your travels within the UK by looking at your passport.

Hi Joanna,

The postcode SL3 0ER points to a location right next to (west side) Heathrow Airport. I've checked the TP accommodation section for budget accommodation in Heathrow and Hunslow, but couldn't find cheap ones. One thing though, the rent there is pretty cheap (below £100/week, all bills inclusive) compared with London.
