Hi need everyone's help here =(
I made my application with my bf. I got my WhM successfully however my bf got reject with the reason that the interviewer wasn't convinced that my bf wanted to go there for a holiday instead of work.

He is given the chance to appeal within 28 days. What can he write or what documents can he include to support his appeal in terms of proving that he is going there for a holiday instead of work?
We've already included travel plans for 2 years. He couldn't answer where he wanted to go travelling to because I did the itinerary and he also mentioned that his manager here can give him a recommendation to work in Starbucks there.

hey ys_710,

you could try to call them in the office hour, and try to find office no.6.
he is quite a helpful person during my application process.

or not you could drop them a mail.

I did so and they replied me the following day, I am quite impressed of their service.

I did track my status through the VFS website and telling the appliation is in process.

Thus you should take initiative to call them up to get the immediate respond.

All the best:)

regards,
simon

what did the eco specify in the the NOR, if not sure can ask the vfs how or what to appeal.
i think you could try to state, he was not well prepared for the interview as the holiday plan was not really done by him. now i think you should appeal by telling them why would he would also like to go to each of the planned places to really convince them. extra homework must e done now, btw, do your bf really want to come to uk to work or holiday? or is he really in to this programme or plain following u since you are the one asking all the q even tho he is the one been rejected? sorry for kp'ing...

i would really like to say to new applicant if you have fulfilled all the requirement, pls do a good job in the planning,IMHO the only subjective part in deciding the approval. not that we do not want to let you have a sample but each individual do have their own plan so can't really help much...just in case you're been interview.

see yaa

hey ys_710,

all the office is using number to represent him or her
b'coz that time i post the appication form without submitting in person.
thus he called me up to come to submit the form myself.
He is really helpful in the process.

I think WHM really loaded with alot of work,

just be patient...

all the best

regards,
simon;)

Can't tell you what documents to include as you didn't say what you've submitted. How much does he have in his bank account? If it's in the range of RM20,000, then try to get his parents and/or sibblings to help out as a sponsor by submitting their bank account statements.

But the real reason in his rejection is clear. The officer wasn't convinced, as you've said. What I think he could do here is to write a letter explaining the situation that he's planned to travel with his girlfriend (YOU!) and you've got the visa. Also, be truthful about the travel plan being prepared by you--say that you like to plan everything and he's left that part to you, which explains why he was unprepared/unable to answer when asked about where he wanted to travel to. I cannot guarantee you anything but I think this letter is worth a shot, based on what we know about the situation.
