I looked up HSBC's Int'l Banking ctr website. At a quick glance, it seems to be for people overseas who wish to invest in Singapore. Can you provide more info on how we can use it to set up a bank acct in the UK? Thanks!

Hi Serene,

HSBC SG can assist to open a UK account if you've been their customer for at least 6 months (i.e. you must have an active HSBC Account for at least 6 months).

This is the only criteria required for them to issue an introduction letter to HSBC UK. For setting up of UK account, an introduction letter is required.

You can contact the International Banking Centre on T: 6731 5186 for more information. Call them for an appointment before you visit them.

Address: 6 Claymore Hill
Claymore Plaza Level 2
Singapore 229571

(Located next to Pacific Plaza, behind Shaw Centre)

Are you going on a Working Holiday too?? When do you intend to depart??

i had waited for 1 year plus to get my visa approved, and i haerd that the application for the uk visa had closed, due to the overwelming participants. anywhere, it's just romous.
but one thing for sure, the people working in the vfm (uk visa center) has very bad attitude, u always give a look of DONT GO UK, U R NOT WELCOME. even though they are not british.
anywhere, my visa had started since 29 dec 2004, but i was thinking to save a bit money before i take off, and some other stuff to settle, so thinking of april 2005, might be thinking of landing at london. so fellow friends who is goin at the same time, maybe we could help up each other

Hey guys! I'm leaving on the 14th of January and I think a few people got the visa the same time as I am are already there (in UK) and few will be there later than me.

For you guys still going to apply or applying, good luck!! See you all in UK!

Happy New Year to everyone!! May the visa application process go easy on everyone!!

Ok guys....i just contacted the HSBC in Dubai (cos thats where i'm at)..and the guy there told me that they would be able to provide me with a "Group Introduction Letter"...aka a reference letter...and with that and a passport...i shud be able to open an account...when i'm in London. However, if i was to open an account from Dubai itself..i'd have to meet *drum rolls* 63 requirements !!!!! So there you have it...a new perspective from a different part of the world !

Sylvvy...i'll be arriving in London on the 13th...would love to hook up with you and share stories ! I'll be based at Ashlee House at Kings Cross. Message me here if you're interested !

Cheers !

I think achiver's suggestion to meet up for those who has got WHV successfully is very good. Then we can get to know all working holidaymakers from all over the world. Keep in up,achiever. I sure will join. I will leave for UK in mid march. Whenever you have decided place and time to meet just drop an annoucement in this forum. Or email to me -

Hi All,

First of all thanx to all for there great responses.Special thanx to YS,Achtung,Kamal,Sanjay,Himanshu...who joined in & boosted my confidence.KNow I think I know someone in UK :-)

Guys I will be leaving for London in Early or Mid March '05.

I will be either going to West London in West Elaing or in Middlesex (South Hall)...Lets see ...

I am looking that we guys can join in before leaving there may be in a chatroom & decide on what all places we'll be moving & than zero -down on 1 or 2 places & can stay initially at the same place will be great fun ...I know that we do not know each other but still ... it's better to live alone or live as a dependent on any body else...this will reduce our expenses to rock bottom even if we r staying in Zone 2 , make us aware about the culture of the different countries , the way of overview we have at different places & the people coming later on can join us near by or so...What say ...???? I HOPE U GUYS CAN UNDERSTAND BETTER & the guys who do not ...start looking for FRIENDS / Sex in the City ...& u will come to know.

& the people going before us can look for the arrangement with their... for us & when we'll come it will be lot more easier for us as well...

Guys tell me what u thing...I don't mind personal messages but I would really appreciate if u can mail it in the forum as all of us know & the new guys do not have to make there own plans ... or they can tell us where we might face the problem ...;)

Bye for now...Take care u all...

With regards,

Ashish Bansal
