If you're coming back to Malaysia before that for a short visit, you could renew it then.
Otherwise, you can always renew your Passport at Malaysian Embassy at UK. Heard you can get it renewed on the same day

hey there

Would just like to express my gratitude to this forum. I got my working holiday Visa to the UK last Friday. Thanks again for all the pointers and guidance. It was really helpful! :)

So anyone going end of Feb or sometime in Feb? Doing anything interesting?

Ive got one question to ask however. My visa is valid from the 28th Feb onwards but is it possible for me to go in earlier but not to work or anything. Because I have a relative staying there. Might want to visit a bit earlier. Is that possible? There is no restrictions for visit right into commonwealth countries? We dont need a visa to visit the UK right? Please advice me on this urgently too. I need to book a ticket.

Another thing. I checked and the cheapest airline from KLIA to heathrow is USD556 leaving on the 28th. Ive also come across Kuwait Airways which is a lil cheaper. USD500+ also. Anyone has any better deals?

All rite hope to hear from you guys and maybe meet up or something here or there.

Take care peepz...

I just came back from uk last week. I has been working there as qs for 1 year time under Science and Graduate Scheme (SEGS) visa. Unfortunately my company couldn't manage to get the work permit for me, therefore I need to leave uk when my visa expired.

I would like to apply WHM after CNY.

I have my uk bank statement of 5500 pound (rm 30000). my father has rm25k. total 55k. is it enough? or i need to get my frien to help. i think he has at least rm 100k. But i heard that if we show too much money, they will reject also. any suggestion?

My another question is : wat kind of jobs do i need to include in my plan? either part time or full time? i understand that we only can work 1 year if get a permenant job. How about part time? one year also????it is so difficult for me to convince them to approve my WHM asi had been there for one and a half year.

I plan to submit the following documents:
- 3 forms
- my uk bank statement (RM30k)
- my father bank statemnt (RM25k)
- my bf invitation letter (he is in the uk and can provide me accommodation)
- my travel plan (i has been london, blackpool and york only, so i wan to go other places)
- passport
- photo
- my letter to explain the reason i apply
- print out some travel guide
- sponsor letter (my father)

Congrats to all the person who get the WHM, can you send me your travel plan. Your helps will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I'm an applicant for the WHM visa. I prepared my visa application materials within 1 week and got my visa within 2 days. I'd like to share my experience as a reference to those who wishes to apply for this visa. I've managed to gather a huge amount of information by reading this thread.
For starters, I submitted all the relevant documents (application forms), and then attached
1) my residence sponsor's letter from the UK, a proof of residency (in this case a bank letter with the address), the sponsor's relevant passport and valid visa
2) tentative travel plans, a very simple one with three columns, duration of stay, areas of interest, and proposed budget.
3) A letter to the visa officer, with simple answers to my background, why i want to tour the UK, and my budget allocation.
4) All the bank statements, with a letter from the bank stating the amount (RM 25K)
5) Parent's sponsor letter
6) Degree cert and letters from previous employers.

Thats it. It is a simple yet precise process. As long as you have the right documents and valid statements, they can't fail your application.
Some advice from my experience:
1) Be sure to produce a valid address and contact in the UK. They asked me for that specifically.
2) If parents are sponsors, supply birth cert as proof.
3) Check check check your documents before going. 1 missed document, you'll have to go through the whole waiting process again.
4) If you have been to the UK before (twice for me in the past yr), do write a valid letter to support WHY you want to go to the UK again. It HAS to be able to convince the officers.
5) Bank statement to be RM20k and above to be convincing enough. They know UK travel for Malaysians are expensive!!
6) Don't wear color contacts, they'll ask you to remove it while taking your biometric digital picture.
7) If you receive an email for collection, jump with joy! It is approved!!

Hope this helps!

Here's a sample:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am currently living and working in London and will be expecting my friend (Name) to be visiting the U.K. around February 2008. I will be hosting his/her stay in England here for the duration of his/her holiday plans.

Attached with this letter is my (proof of residency, S&P agreement etc.), which proves my residency at this current address. Please contact me if you have further questions regarding (name) stay in the U.K. Thank you.

modify yourself accordingly.
