Thanks for ur reply again.......the reason i got the sponsors because they all are my family members and they willing and wish to sponsor me in UK for me to gain more experiences and to learn to be more independent. tis is true and i nt sure whether the officer will trust that or nt. but anyways, i am so appreciate ur suggestion and coments, i will try to find out more about it. So when do u travel to UK? congrat that u get ur visa without any interview? how long does it take once u pass up the application form to office?

Good.. explain to them by writing in the form.. dont worry buddy.. the officer will trust u if u can show the evidence. mayb u can use table form like putting the name, relationship and the amount sponsor. that will look better.

during the submission, i was told to collect in a week later unless i was contacted for an interview. i was so worried the officer would call me. that time, the online tracking system was down, so i was unable to check my status. all i could do was to wait for the day to come and prayed hard that the officer did not call me anyway, i will travel next year end of March.

Really appreciate ur suggestion, now i got more confident to use more than one sponsor.........i will take ur suggestion for doing the table of sponsor..........and also ask my sponsors to write letter as one of the prove for sponsoring me......

About the prove of relationship, should i ned to ask my family members to certified their birth cert? where to certified ya?.....and also where to certified the passport and all the travel document? should i need to photostat my passport also.....i think its not neccessary since i will be handing my original passport to the office......if i wan to pass my degree cert to prove that i had been studying in one of the Uni in Liverpool, should i ned to certified my photostat cert also?......i am afraid that they will lost my original cert if i hand it together with the application.......

Anyways Typing82, wish u enjoy the 2 yrs life in UK, this is a nice country and a lot fo thing can be explore and learn through......wish to met u up if i successfully get the WHM......sure u treat a meal.....hehehe I will be coming back to KL by early of March.......r u from KL too?.....mayb v can have a met up in Msia 1st.......

Thanks a lot for ur reply.....

no worries s8678.. there isnt a requirement that u must travel to other countries or having a first passport. and u r under the age of 30 rite.. but u have to write to explain why u want to go UK?? i suppose u hav already prepared. good luck!

Just a reminder, I am giving suggestion based on my experience. if u want to be assured, u should call VFS or BHC officer. :)

actually no need to submit birth cert. but i did just in case :p
fyi, if u want to certify those papers, can do it at Commission of Oath. but if u will submit the original one, no need to certify the photocopy one.
you must photocopy ur passport and submit along with the original. then the photocopy will be returned to u with the receipt. u will need it for collection.
all the original papers will be kept in a sealed envelope, i m sure it is safe. so far i hav not seen any case for missing documents. i prefer submit the original rather than hav the photocopy certified anyway, check ur items before u leave the office after collection. it was a sigh of relief to see UK visa sticked on the passport

Anyways Typing82, wish u enjoy the 2 yrs life in UK, this is a nice country and a lot fo thing can be explore and learn through......wish to met u up if i successfully get the WHM......sure u treat a meal.....hehehe I will be coming back to KL by early of March.......r u from KL too?.....mayb v can have a met up in Msia 1st.......

I think i am still in china during early march. its good to meet up but i m from Penang. hehe.. i drove all the way to KL just to submit my application. at least it was worth the effort.
since u'v been to UK, hope u can share ur experience about the opportunities and places best to visit.

Hi all

I am Ruben and this has got to be one of the most informative forums on this topic. Great job to those who have been giving excellent advice!

Well firstly congrats to all those who have been succesful in your working visa applications. Well I really want to do this thing next year. So I plan on travelling soon to the UK. I have an aunt in the UK and she will be retiring soon from her job and returning here. So this is the best time for me to go. Although she is there, I am quite apprehensive on this whole approach but at the same time hugely excited. I hope everyone who is there at the moment is having a great time there. Im not entirely sure on my travel plans at the moment. I have read the thread on this but I think for me this is the major problem. I will be getting some extra funds from my dad to put into my account and then to show this to the officer. Will the oficer be checking the history of transactions in the account. I have been working for the past 4 years so this should not be a problem right?

The other thing is my passport is expiring Apr 09. I should get this extended/new one right before I apply for this?

Anyway again this is a great forum. Lookin forward to somemore news/advice/plans...whatever.. :)

Hi Ruben,

Since you have read the thread throughly, i foresee you will have no diffuclties understanding the visa application procedures :)
In your case, your dad can act as sponsor + some savings evidence from yourself should be good enough to get clearance. The officers wont be checking on origin of funds as long they look genuine and justifiable.

If your passport is expiring in less than 6 months, you need to renew before you could apply for the visa.

Cheers mate :)
