hi Everybody,

im newbie here. I have some questions here. Can u guys or girls help me out on this:
1)How do apply for this VFS. Thru online or by posting. If online which website and if postal where can i get the form.
2) How much should i have in my account to pass thru this application succesfully...

please and thanks in advance...

Hi,

1)
The visa application is pretty straightforward -
Download the form(VAF2) at VFS Website

More Details on WHM
http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/servlet/Front?pagename=OpenMarket/Xcelerate/ShowPage&c=Page&cid=1018721068240

2)
Subjective question but anything above 20K is a good figure to start with. However it does not guarantee your visa approval.

My advise to you is READ the forum from page 1 until the end, it has more than enough information that you may need to be well informed.

Cheers :)

hi, mctnesh
its me again

For the page about fund can u give me more details about how to write it or any website have the sample to refer?

3. 1 page about fund information (e.g. GBP2500 i will bring along to UK, for firts 2 mth. and mention how to use it, like caculate average how much for meal, stay, transport and sundry expenses. And show where i found that information)

You need to tell them your total money available for ur UK stay. Assuming u have 60K in ur account, but that does not mean u have allocated that sum for UK trip. So do your costing first, then u will be able to declare how much fund u gonna have for UK ;)

And do i need to open an international bank account (e.g. HSBC), as a document to show? Or i just write how i plan to withdraw the money from bank if the visa approve?

Thanks....

Hi,

Just allocate 1 page to write down ur financial details,
Example :-
-----------------------------------------
Section 1.0
My Available Fund

I have set aside RMXX,000 (₤X000) fund from my savings for my UK Holiday Maker Scheme.

Financial Details as at 03 DEC 2007,
Bank Account Type Amount (Ringgit Malaysia)
Maybank Personal Savings Account RMXXXXXX
Hong Leong Bank Current Account RMXXXXXX
Grand Total RMXXXXXX
Fund Allocated for UK Stay RMXXXXXX

Please refer to Appendix for enclosed supporting documents.
Appendix 1.0
Certified True Copy Maybank Personal Savings Passbook Photocopy
Appendix 2.0
Certified True Copy Latest Hong Leong Bank Current Account Statements
--------------------------------------------

Then on another page, show COSTING of your EXPECTED expenses for Accomodation, Transportation, Entrance Ticket Fee, Misc (Health, Internet, Laundry, Calls, Clothing)

From the costing given here, you will be able to tell how long you cud survive at UK using ur own fund. Thereafter you could roughly tell the kind of INCIDENTAL jobs you wish to take up to further supplement your expenses as per your initial costing.

Cheers :)

Hi everyone, I wanna apply the VFS too. Currently I live in USA and plan to apply it from the emabassy here. I have some questions:
1. I have around RM20k and is that SPONSOR is a must?
2. have been work and travel in USA for 2 years. Do you think that will help with my application? Should I include any travel experince in USA?
3. Do we need to provide the latest bank statement @ the last 3 months statements?

Please help me with this...really need help badly...thanks everyone...

hi, mctnesh

1 more question about FUND

every thing are very expensive in UK, infact RM60k are not enough for survive in UK for even 1 years.
In my calculation(i survey the information from internet) of monthly expenses about GBP1050, then if RM60k can only lash 8mth. ++work, while we work there we still need to pay rental and food, then can't save much for subsiquent trevel fees lor.............

Then how if the people only have RM20k in saving and without sponsor

Haha...thats y its important to do costing :)
Since now you know how much you need to spend, do justify with the months you gonna be there.
Although 2 years is allowed under the visa, i jst stated 16 months is enough for me.

Since you are allowed to work there for 1 year, you should be able to survive if you live very moderately :p
Alternatively, if you feel living in london is too expensive, consider other cities which are likely going to be A LOT more cheaper. :)

Hi,

1. I have around RM20k and is that SPONSOR is a must?

Do your costing and you will be able to know for yourself whether its enough or not. Seriously, each individual's lifestyle is different on how u spend ur money.

2. have been work and travel in USA for 2 years. Do you think that will help with my application? Should I include any travel experince in USA?

There is no straightforward answer for this question. Probably you should emphasize on your determination to travel extensively to justify your application.

3. Do we need to provide the latest bank statement @ the last 3 months statements?

Yes, its basic requirement.
Cheers
