Visa Guidelines is back

Alhamdulillah, I got married to a lovely lady by the name of Sarah and we're enjoying our new phase in life since that momentous day.

And yeah, I graduated from the University of Nottingham and thus, escaping from the evil clutches of my medical school. woot2! probably needs a post on this as well but yeah, maybe later.

at the bottom of this blog, there is an article on visa guidelines for medical students graduated from UK medical schools under MARA scholarship who are planning to work as an FY1 doctor in the UK.

After all, it was my visa guidelines which i made 5 years ago that helped me to get to know a lot of people and for some, have now become my close friends. And it helped a lot of other people as well. So I hope that this guideline would ease your efforts a bit. Visa application is always confusing.

i gotta feeling

Somehow, I do believe that everything would be just fine :)

I mean, well...

I wasn't able to send you off at KLIA,
I haven't taken a picture with you yet,
I could not go to your house before I fly,
I didn't go to your house for your kenduri,
I couldn't go to your house so you can treat me,
I didn't get to meet all my teachers during graduation,
I still don't know how to cook, so I couldn't teach you how to prepare the tempoyak dish;

You didn't call me like you used to,
You went home early during graduation,
You still haven't replied to my post though the other 4 had,
You haven't seen me for a very long time and the last time was in Penang,
You and I are connected through Facebook and the last time I saw you was 2 years ago,
You didn't come to my house for raya or makan nasi after saying about them several times,
You won't be able to go to the same university as I am despite the fact you acquired the minimum requirement;

We didn't eat kambing together,
We didn't even get to see each other during graduation,
We couldn't break fast together this year before each of us fly,
We didn't carry out the things that we had planned when IB was over,
We won't be going to the same university (haish...I still haven't gotten over this issue),
We couldn't carry out all the plans that you've thought about while I'm in Shah Alam (kat London la ye),
We still don't manage to take a picture together in any of our graduations (accidental & blurry ones don't count);

Tabahkan hati wahai sahabatku...;)

I'm sure Allah has something cool in stored for us.

How can I be so sure about this?

I'm sure that the next 5 years will be one heck of a ride too.

New drama, new twists, new setting, new challenges, new characters but I'm looking forward to the recurring ones.

Dear Nottingham, bring it on!

Visa Guidelines

Disclaimer: Everything that I have written in this article would not confirm your success in applying for a visa. It is intended to be an explanation of the things that I have done in order for me to get a Tier 4 Visa to begin my work as an FY1 doctor.

29th July - I got my visa today from DX! Alhamdulillah :)

The document which I used as a basis of my decision can be found on this link - click me

TIMELINE

14th July - My supporting docs arrived at Visa
16th July - Date of letter to invite me for the Biometric enrolment
19th July - I went to the Post Office for Visa Biometric enrolment
25th July - Received a DX delivery card for my visa because no one was around at home huhu

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED (in my opinion)

1. The ones listed on the cover sheet. For me:
Current passport and previous passport (which contained Tier 4 Visa for medschool) and 2 passport photos

2. A letter of unconditional consent from MARA.

This is based on this section on the Visa Guidance

"54. If you are currently financially sponsored by a government or an international scholarship
agency, or your financial sponsorship ended within 12 months of your application being
made, you will need your sponsor’s permission to stay in or re-enter the UK. You must
provide us with your financial sponsor’s unconditional consent in writing. This must confirm
that your sponsor has no objection to you continuing your studies in the UK. If your financial
sponsor does not give consent, we will refuse the application."

page 8 of 78

Method: Call MARA and explain to them that you would like this letter. Email MARA with your full name, passport no, name of hospital for FY1 and your Foundation School. E.g. Royal Preston Hospital, North Western Foundation School

3. Bank statements

The amount for outside of London is £1640. So I sent them a bank statement which is dated within 31 days of my application and the money has been held in the account for 28 days consecutively

4. CAS letter

I just printed it out from the email

5. BMedSci and BMBS degree

Yeah, I actually posted both degrees lol. This is because in the CAS letter, it states that the evidence required to obtain the letter is my degree. Hence, the reason why I did that. In addition, I chose "I have an academic qualification, at least
equivalent to a UK Bachelor's degree, taught in
English" as an evidence to demonstrate my English language ability. So, I think these degrees would be sufficient.

6. Cover sheet

Which you can print off after submitting your application

All the best!!
