2) actually, to be honest, WHY you still go for WHM since u have a valid visitors visa til 2009? why not straight away go for working permit after u get a job? i'm just curious..

Hi Jessc thank you for replying. I seriously am very grateful to you, taigra and everyone else on this forum..you guys are great :) To answer your question: I simply cant opt for a work permit because the qualifications i have do not fall in the shortage occupation and one of the main criterias to get a work permit is that you have to fall in the shortage occupation category. The reason why I want a WHM is to travel and work and a visitors visa will not allow me to gain any work experience. I was in the UK for almost 3 years after which I went back again last year in 2007 summer and then October. Thats why am worried about the questions ive stated in my previous post and not sure how i would answer them. If I say i went to meet a friend then they might not believe me because i had just come back from the UK and they might ask me then, that what was so urgent that i had to go meet my friend again after such a short gap. Just dont understand what i should do and what should i say to the visa officers if they ask me those kind of questions i have mentioned in the previous post.

The reason why i applied for a whm inspite of having a 2 yrs valid visitors visa is because i thought i anyway have a visa till 2009 and if they could convert this into a whm visa, i would not only be able to travel but also be able to work..but is this good enough answer to convince them? because honestly thats why i really applied. Am very very worried :(

Dear All,

After more than a month of stress and tension, I finally got the Entry Clearance this morning.
It was so smooth without interview, I hope jessc gets it too.
Thank y'all the pioneers so much for helping me out and posting such good tips.
If I can be of any assitance, I'd be glad to help.
I'm flying out on the 25th of May.
Good luck guys!

yes, it is better to tell d officer u r applying WHM together w ur bf
about d accommodation, u can simply get a hostel online and print it out (rem to get the address of ur accommdation)
i put both my parents as my financial sponsors, that is fine

cngrats jessc & ed, great to hear that,

i must say this forum is the best reference for all applying WHV,
most of your apps i think got approved some even without interview,
don't forget to stay in touch and help others

can check out MATTA fair for the tickets, i got mine during the extension of the MAS fair, RM 1500 one way, check if they still have it

Dear taigra,

Apart from the success, thanks to you for consistantly helping out in terms of providing opinions and stuffs. That really really helped me out a lot! And thanks for the wishes and I bet jessc is jumping with excitement too.

I still can't stop smiling.

I visited MATTA this morning, but I think it's crap. Most of them offerring Return tickets for only a month period. And Emirates doesn't do one way or open-ticket for this MATTA promotion.

My question to you taigra, is it buying one-way ticket secured enough? As rumours have said the officers at the airport may reject your Entry Clearance if you don't show them Return's. But which airlines that actually provide more than a year open-tics right?!
So, is it an issue of just buying one-way? When are you leaving anyway? Or you're already in the UK? Or back?
