Mr_punjabi

I can give you some hints for the interview.

Take a deep breath>>>to get your tensions down>>>>>

I hav'nt attended any intreview but my brother attended the interview at the embassy . and i got a lot of information from people who came out of the interview. Those people will ask all types of cross question and make you feel that your purpose is different then what ever you have given***but dont get tensed be cool answer the questions with a cool mind. be carefull while you answer.even if they ask you stupid questions.just stick on what ever is the statement of purpose. In case of WHM prove to them that your main purpose is visit and not work. But you would take up work for keeping your travel going.Any questions regarding your documents be very perfect. In case you want to take some extra documents yes you may but be carefull when you prove.

finally finished digest all the info in this forum. I spent hours to read all the posts(from page 1 to 48!!). Thanks. enjoy reading it but my eyes really tired now. my application was submitted on 28th march 2005 morning. await my status to have favorable change asap. in the checklist, it didn't mention that we need to enclose our old passport. i only submit my brand new passport that being renewed recently. hope it won't affect or delay my application. wonder do i need to courier my old passport to them now? is going there in june/july a wise decision?

regards,
ccoh

Hi there,

I understand that working holidaymakers have to return to their home countries after 2 years (unless they receive a work permit).
What about furthering your studies? Is one able to apply for a student visa after working in the UK as a working holidaymaker?

thanks very much, Lydia

Let me get this straight, so far those who applied in January have not got their visa? Any successful applicant? What happened to Yap?
Going in June / July is a good choice since it;s summer so u may not find it hard to adapt and easier to find a job but maybe accomodation may cost more. Good luck.

yap ??? u mean me :P

no worry Im still in Msia and havent receive any update on the visa yet

I do called VFS teive and informed them that some of my net friends who applied before and after me had been requested to submit the additional questionaire but why not me but yet they told me that there is no indication from BHC that i need to submit any additional questionaire. Maybe I had provide sufficient prove that why the additional questionaire is not required.

how long do we still need to wait.

Hi Lydia,
Yes, I believe you are able to change to any type of visa to enter UK again after the 2 years working holiday. All you need is just to be accepted by the course you intent to study.

cheers

Hi Jazzies,
thanks a lot.
bummer though, just found out on the vfs website and uk visas has also confirmed it - they will be suspending whm visas for the kl office (also colombo, gaborone and windhoek) from apr 1 till further review, possibly in 6 months.
Not too sure bout applications that were submitted before that though.
:(

I guess I will just have to wait and be patient*sigh*
