Congratulation.. Only when u apply big company u just need to submit your National Insurance Number!! For those small company, they will give you a letter for you to apply National Insurance after they recuit you.. so don't worry, that is very easy to get a job in London without National Insurance..

you can go this 2 website.. www.spareroom.co.uk and www.gumtree.co.uk for room...zone 1,2 very expensive, zone 3,4,5,6 is cheaper..

Good Luck..

Hi Lalalamb,

I tot kensigton is in London? Why do you need to go to Manchester?
The easiest way will be get a train there. I can find out more for you if you want.

Alo Dolphine,
I'm not sure how many Kensington there are in England, but the one I'm going to is in Liverpool. Is there a public bus from Manchester airport direct to Liverpool? If you can find out more info for me then it would be great!!

Lalalamb,
not sure if there is public bus. it should have. but u can take a train from manchester to liverpool lime street then take a bus from there to kensigton. not far away.

www.nationalrail.co.uk for train service information.

dolphine.

For those who is coming to Uk soon,

Some of my experience to share with yours bcos you can save a lot of money and unfortunately nobody tell me before i come. Those items you should/'nt bring to london as below:

(1) Remember buy cigarette in malaysia airport bcos you can sell to the groceries shop. You can earn around RM110 for one box(10/20)!! If you dare to sell to stranger, of course you can earn more!! The price here is 5.7 pounds per box(big). Better buy Malboro Light!! easy to sell...
(2) If you alr have bed sheet, pillow cases, pls bring along!! that is the thing u won't share with others..
(3) If you prefer to cook yourself at home, remember to bring Maggie Mee, curry powder, Bak ku teh, red peanut, black soya sauce, bowl, spoon & fork,...If you don't feel funny, you should bring garlic as well!! because that is extremely expensive here... haha.. But of course, don't make yourself like illegal worker!! and remember those items cannot put in hand luggage!! kettle, pan, hair dryer, iron....should bring as well..
(4) No need to bring to much of clothes!! the clothes here is quite cheap and good quality!!
(5) No need to bring X-ray, bcos sometimes they won't check!! Like my bf, they just let him in without any question. That is free to take X-ray in airport so don't waste money.

Good Luck to all of you...any question just text me!!

Hi Dolphine, i got my VIsa without interview so i m not sure what kind of question they will ask.. but i heard from my friend who is attended the interview before, they said they will ask "what is the purpose u apply this visa? how long you planning to stay in UK?" and some of the question they ask is bcos you didn't prepare the document for them. Better prepare whatever document you have and bring together for the interview.. Good luck...

One thing about travelling is to travel light. If one were to bring so many things along, it would be a hassle. The key is to bring things you feel is most important. Remember your weight limit is 20-25kgs for the flight. As for the food, you can find most of these items in chinese grocery stores as they are not too expensive. Bring a little supply should you need a 'taste of home'. But overbringing these food items might cause you a lot of trouble at the airport customs, sometimes even resulting in a thorough confiscation. No offence Rachel 0318 but UK law forbid any sort of fresh veggie, fruits or meat-so no garlic allowed. I've know people who were fined thousands of pounds because they brought in these items. Sometimes houses you rent are fully furnished, so cutleries, kettles, pans and irons will be provided already. You can also buy loads of items at Poundland for a pound. Good quality but cheap.

Always follow the fee on the official website.

All visa fees are published in pound sterling (GBP) and long term visas, including WHM, are £200. This is then converted into local currencies based on a rate set by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). This rate is higher than the market rate and is revised from time to time. I guess the rate must have been revised recently and you only have to pay MYR1374 compared to MYR1440 previously.

Make sure you check the website for the latest figure on the day you are paying the fee.

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

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.

Hi Fiona,
Thanks for your reply. I think most of my items are ready and I'll submit on 1st July. Yes, I've research for 3 weeks on my planned itinerary as it's the crucial part of the application. I hope I'll be convincing enough with that! I have also been to Korea, Australia, Bangkok, so will include to strengthen my travelling desire. For expired passports, I've gotten all 2 books from my mum, luckily she kept them.
I think it'll take long time for application currently as many folks in this forum are still waiting and waiting. So I need to submit fast before tier 5 is up!

Dear all, there are many helpful souls in this forum who taught me what to prepare for my application. Thanks for all your guidance. No matter I succeed or fail, I'll always remember your kindness!

Cheers!;)

hi everyone,
I've got a few questions to ask, hope someone can advise me.

1) I've filled an online application. But now, i want to change some of the info on it, so instead, i've filled a normal form (printed it out and wrote on it). Is it OK? when i go there, do i still need to quote the code for the online form that i've filled?

2) On the last page of the application form, it say additional information. I've done up a short proposal (which includes my plan, budget, letters, etc). how do i attach it? Do i just write - "Refer to attachment" on the last page?

3) I've made an appointment online. Do i just bring all the necessary documents & money there, then submit and leave? What happens on that day?

I'm so blurrr.. please advise...
