Life's good I would say, though I haven't start looking for a job yet. :p
Not much excitement for me, just enjoy different culture, travel, as usual.
Very unlikely to get homesick for me.. haha...

forgot to ask.. since we get to know if our applications have been approved on the spot after interview, does that mean we will get back our documents on the spot too?
if not, how long will it take?

Bes & Dolpine

I got a call this morning too, my interview is on 17th July. Can we ask them to schedule the interview earlier? Our passports will be with them for more than a month, and I don't know when can we collect the documents back after the interview no matter approved or rejected. I'm getting so impatient...another 3 more weeks before the interview ar...my neck is growing longer la...

Bes, Keensun,
I also got call, interview on 7 July. i check the previous post from others, i suppose we can know the result on the same day and get back our passport. Did they told you what are the documents need to bring during the interview?
I never thought of this application took so long.

This reply is for the previous three posts.

1. Why is it taking so long? This is what happens when you apply during the peak season. They are overloaded with visa applications. Anyway, one month to get a long-term visa isn't that long at all. My flatmate's a British and his partner, a Filipino, is applying for a spouse visa in Manila. He submitted the application last November, and he's still waiting for a reply now!
2. I don't think you can ask for an earlier date. They would have given you an earlier date if it is possible, don't you think?. But you certainly can request to postpone it until a later date if you are not available on that given time slot.
3. What to bring? It depends. If you think you have forgotten something, or you have extra documents to support your application (e.g. proof of funds), bring them. Or you may not have to bring anything at all if every is already in order.
4. At the end of your interview, the officer interviewing you will let you know if they are granting you the visa. Your passport and other documents will be ready for collection (at VFS) in the afternoon the same day, or the latest by the next working day.

[quote=ShaLai][quote=zawa][quote=ShaLai]Hi there folks,

Hi Shalai
Alternatively, you can submit the using online application form. It is now available for Malaysia.
You can know more from this website: http://www.visa4uk.fco.gov.uk/
Anyway, you need to print after completing it and submit to VFS.

Good luck!

Hi Fiona,

Thanks for yr info, it's very useful!

By the way, did you apply using this form and was it approved? Are you already in U.K? If so, do you know about the taxes we have to pay?

Shalai

I submitted my visa application on 18 June 2008 and it was approved 2 days later. Collected my passport at VFS today. I find the process and work culture at VFS and British High Comission very efficient. Well done!
I will be travelling to UK in early September.

Why worry about paying taxes? Hunt for a job and pay whatever necessary to be deducted. :)
My ambition is to travel, as long as I have sufficient fund to sustain and do lots of travelling,
that would be great! Hehe.

Congrats, Can you please let us know what documents you submitted.
Do you have any sponser ?
How much monedy did you show ?
Have you ever travelled out of your contry?

Looking forward for your reply.

Thanks

Shalai
1.) I submit only necessary and relevant documents.
Example: Payslip, EA Form, Highest education certificate, my savings account statement (certified by bank),
2.) There's no financial sponsor for me. I have a friend invitation letter from UK.
3.) As for savings, I think around RM15k is good enough.
Most important is to show that you love travelling and meeting new people.
Do some reserach of places you look forward to visit and be convincing! ;)
I purhcased a comprehensive lastest Britain travel guide book, submit the receipt as well. :)
4.) I had been to a few countries previously. Eg: Thailand, US, Australia, Singapore.
PS: Remember to hand in your previous expired passport if you have.
