Latest news on malaysian visa free status for visiting UK 11-02-09

Good news for Malaysians that are clinging to the hopes of the visa waiver programme still valid for visiting Britain. Yes the news is out but strangely not being widely reported in Malaysian daily as it previously did and as refered from my previous post http://george-lim.blogspot.com/2008/07/updates-on-malaysia-case-to-retain-its.html

The UK border agency has released the decision to employ the need of a visa to visit UK, regimes will now be introduced in Bolivia, Lesotho, South Africa, Swaziland and Venezuela. And just to console those people who needs a visa to visit Britain, the press release stressed that three quarters of the world’s population need to apply for a visitor visa to visit Britain. So in conclusion, Malaysia obviously is not in the list. That means Malaysians are still free to travel to Britain for leisure purpose without the need of a visa.

That is such a sigh of relief, at least for now.
