I was looking around the Malaysian Students Department for the United Kingdom and Eire and found links (under Other Links) to a couple of companies that ship door-to-door between the UK and Malaysia. Not sure if they're trustworthy, but I think it should be reliable enough be be allowed to advertise on the MSD website. You could phone the MSD and ask them about which one they recommend.

thanks Hein, i think i will try using shippingtomalaysia.com

it is sad that the WHV UK for Malaysians is now defunct. it may have something to do with the economy in Britain, which looks really dire and about to die a violent death.

all the major factories, especially the car factories, are dying of orders. workers are been put out to pasture. news on the tele is just bad bad bad.

but still, jobs can still be found. unfortunately, these are McJobs, like working in Tesco and Sainsbury.

I believe the reason why UK immigration is restricting the youth mobility scheme to only 5 countries is because there were too many people that applied for the working holiday scheme when they opened it up to every country in the commonwealth and it's not just because of the economy.

They have been rehauling the criteria for visas for a few years now. Also I think the reason why it's only the 5 countries because they have reciprocal agreements with the UK.

yes, all these working holiday maker visa depends on agreement between the Home Office and the Malaysian government. if i remember correctly, the Home Office stated last year that too many malaysians have been overstaying their visas, thus incurring the wrath of the British Government. therefore, they are not continuing the WHV visa for Malaysians.

i spent my holiday in france last november for 3 weeks depart from london.. there should not be an issue...

only that when u back to UK again... they might ask some question like if you have landed a job?? what r u doing in UK and so on....

what u worry is that when u back to UK not go out of UK....
