Hi guys,

I submitted my application yesterday, i will get the result on next tues... the officer told me if need any extra documents, they will call me for interview, I hoped that I do not need to attend the interview;)..The VFS's officer is nice and friendly....Franckly, I have no confidence to get the Visa..but anyway. just want to try..other let it to God....

Documents I had submitted
1. Passport
2. Application form (Please download the latest one coz they changed the format recently)
3. Company offer letter
4. Invitation letter from my friend in UK
5. Pay Slip
6. Bank passbook (original)
7. Travel plan
8. Degree certificate....

Documents are better certify by commision of oath...For the bank statement, is better update the latest transaction and certify by bank...

Hopefully this info can help other....

God bless,
PY

hi guys,
i got my WHM visa last monday. as long as the relevant documents are provided. I dont think interview is required. especially the financial part, if the origins of fund can be proven, then getting the visa is not a problem. show them where the money came from, dont let them guess. just discard other irrelevant documents. no point giving them what they dont ask for rite.

btw, i need some help from those already in UK.
1. How to find accommodation??

2. How to find jobs?? I am in IT field. Anyone can recommend me?? Anyway, I am ok with any type of jobs like waiter or bartender.

3. Which location is best based??

PM or reply. Thanks

Hi, s8678

ur answer:
1. i have current account, the statement will post to me every month then do i need bring the original statenment to certifield(stamp) from bank again?
2. For saving acoount i go bank and ask to print out original statement for me, do i ask certifield(stamp) ?
if original, no need to be certified.
if you are to submit original and photocopy, no need to be certified unless you are to submit photocopy only

3. will them(VFS officer) call the bank? Cos i will withdraw some from b4 i summit. (just little bit la... like i have RM60k from my bank statement as at 31/12/07, but when i summit WHM aplication at 7/01/2008 in my bank balance is RM58k). ;)
they wont call the bank.
you need to prove where those money come from. if working, show your employment letter/contract and payslip. if parents sponsor, show your parents payslip/FD/passbook/etc. as long as you can prove where the money came from.

4. And my statement is 31/12/07, but i summit WHM aplication at 7/01/2008, do i need to update till 7/01/08 or 5/01/08?
no need. but why not update it? you have more than enough. Most matters are the origin of funds

how strange....they asked for another set of photocopy of all documents but when i submit my application yesterday they only took few of it. i have a conclusion here,

for all bank statements, certificates, salary slips, employment letters must provide photocopy together but for travel plan, that's included ur accomodation details, tour packages, transport rental, financial planning, job details are unecessary to provide photocopy for each of it.

let's see what result i got in next wednesday.

The last time i submitted my documents, they took all of it, including the travel plans.

Keep your fingers crossed that you wont get a phone call from them :)
Best wishes.

Hi, I am new here!recently had read some of the thread in this forum and i am searching information to apply for WHM. Currently i am in UK holding visitor visa. 6 months before i was studying in Liverpool for an intensive twining course and then go out of London for an Europe tour. My visa will be valid untill mid of March but i will be going back to Malaysia to attend my convo in early March. Some question now are
1. how can i start preparing all the needed documents for applying WHM and what can i do since i am in UK now
2. will my current stay in UK affect my application?
3. i had visited the VFS web site and found that the application form is just 1 page and wanting to know wat is the purpose of the questionaires? do i ned to submit it when i submit my application form?
4. before i apply for WHM, do i ned to get a visa 1st? (plz forgive me if my question is silly, i just nt so understand wat it mean by i ned a visa to apply for working holiday maker visa)
5.if i still a student and unemploy since i graduate, will this affect my precentage of approval from officer toward WHM? (but i had saving and sponsor in supporting me to UK)
6. about fren's invite letter, does it suppose to be formal letter or just like the informal letter btw frens? what should they write in the letter? is it purposely just written to invite me to come UK and say will provide me accomdation when i arrive UK?

sorry for the long question list, i realy feel helpless and headache after read through all the rules and regulation that stated in VFS web site......wish to hear some advice and information from this forum.....thanks a lot!!~~;)

hi s8678,

i dont know if KWSP statement is in English. if not, must get it translated and ceritifed at commision of oath or KWSP officer. a bit of a hassle.

employment letter and payslip and bank statement should be sufficient. Mayb you can attach along with EA form. it is just my suggestion. for me, i only have bankbook and employment letter because i dont have payslip. ;)

Hi Angeline,
VFS provide a very clear information of what to do. This forum is a guidance and get information about others experience. I advise you to see VFS thoroughly and see through all the post in the forum. however i could share some.

1. how can i start preparing all the needed documents for applying WHM and what can i do since i am in UK now
while in UK, its better to download the necessary documents from VFS website and study them. understand how to fill in the form. it is a good time to get tenancy agreement since u r in uk. get a friend/landlord to sign a letter as an evidence that u hav a place to stay in UK. prepare ur travel plan, budget plan too.

2. will my current stay in UK affect my application?
if u r entering uk legally. prove it. state ur reason. i think the form has a section regarding to this. be honest with the form because ur passport has a UK stamp rite.

3. i had visited the VFS web site and found that the application form is just 1 page and wanting to know wat is the purpose of the questionaires? do i ned to submit it when i submit my application form?
it cant be 1 page. there is a form called VFA2. of course.. u must refer to the checklist(also from the vfs website). if u missed any of the item, u r definitely hav to go thru interview. or mayb the officer wont allow u to submit ur application till u hav everything ready.

4. before i apply for WHM, do i ned to get a visa 1st? (plz forgive me if my question is silly, i just nt so understand wat it mean by i ned a visa to apply for working holiday maker visa)
u need a passport to get a visa.

5.if i still a student and unemploy since i graduate, will this affect my precentage of approval from officer toward WHM? (but i had saving and sponsor in supporting me to UK)
as long as u hv money, not a problem. proof urs and ur sponsor's origin of funds.

6. about fren's invite letter, does it suppose to be formal letter or just like the informal letter btw frens? what should they write in the letter? is it purposely just written to invite me to come UK and say will provide me accomdation when i arrive UK?
yes ur last question is the answer. formal or informal is ok. short one will do. but u hav to show ur friend's tenancy agreement. evidence that ur fren's own the house or rent the house.

above may be one way.. u can look through this thread to check out more alternatives. u can even call VFS to voice ur concern. they are willing to help. trust me.

good luck and also congratulation on ur graduation
