Hi ya!!

I think U r on the same track as me..I haven't told anyone in tha office yet..just waiting to get the visa approved..and then only wanna tell to my boss and giving a 1 month notice of resignation. I dont think they will call..coz all the confirmation / employment letter/ payslip have been stamped and sign by my HR Director( even tough she's not my direct boss. If anyone have a better advice please do share with us..Many Thanks

Something else...
I've been working for the past 6 months, and am planning to leave for working holiday next year. but i have been thinking of the government study loan i took, (PTPTN) here in Malaysia, would that affect my application? i do plan to pay it off of course, but mainly i hope i could save some from working in the UK. my concern is if it would affect my application since i'm financially 'attached'. thankx.

Dear a9myn,

Sure they will check on your financial background that do you have any debts or etc. If they found that you had alot of debts, or house/car loan that had committed, they probably will call you for interview. And of course they will check whether you are under bankrupcy or not. haha.

THis will make them clear enough to see the purpose for you to go to UK.

Hi All,
I am interested to apply for the working Holiday maker Visa. I would like to know if i can work in the field of Information Technology / computers. I have read in certain websites that one can take up "employment incidental to a holiday". What does this mean?
Any help on the above will be gratly appreciated.

Hi evryone...

I went this morning to apply for the WHM Visa..and the process was quiet question all my forms was complete. but there was a slight problem..I totally forgot to print my front page of the bank statement, Opps...! but u know what..those officers over there was quiet helpful..they told me to go to Maybank just oppst the Ampang Park..and ask them to print the front sheet of the statement, to make my application stronger they also told me to get the statement certify stamping by the bank. So i did. The new thing is They ask me to give a Declaration Letter( letter saying that u understand the rules & regul'tion and what are ur holiday plans short. I told them that i was not aware of that..thay said..dont worry..u still got time to do all that we asked u to do..then thay asked me to come back by 2.30pm. I quickly did as what they requested to and i submit to them at 2.10pm..They told that my application was fully complete as what they its up to the officers to view ur application and to approve..they also told that it will take at least 2 months for my application to be resulted.And the payment was done to the officer itself by cash. So..In my point of view..I think ,the application can take a smooth pace..if we provide them all the forms needed and more than what they need..coz this will nevr create a space for them to ask any questions...

Anyone would share my thaughts..Pls do..

Hi Kempes,
Sorry to informed you that I have yet submitted the additional request to them. Mostly like i will ready it by next week.
I called them the other day, the lady mentioned to me that I can either fill up the form and resend back to her via email or i can also fax it over.
