Hi everyone - does anybody know how long on average it takes for HO to charge the debit/credit card once the application is received? From what I can see from this forum, it is generally 3 working days. It has been over a week for me, and still no activity from HO. The application was sent through NCS. Many thanks in advance.

Please note that I did not use check and send for my passport application. My husband applied using check and send on Saturday 2 October and he is still waiting for his interview letter and documents... Also a colleague applied using postal on the same day as myself and had similar timelines to me. I believe postal is faster... But that is my opinion

Oath Timeframe

Post by 1963British » Wed Oct 13, 2010 11:13 am

UKBA approval letter was just received by next day special delivery.

Does the Oath Invitation letter come from UKBA or the local council?

Typically, what is the date on the Oath Invitation letter compared to the approval letter?

How many and how soon, have others gone on to a private oath after receiving the approval letter?

I am guessing that the certificate would be printed and mailed to the council the day after the approval letter, any other guesses?

Thanks!!

comes from the council after they have received a letter from the home office. So u will receive 2 letters in one envelope. usually comes after a week or so. for the private oath it really depends on ur council. i kno someone who had taken a oath the same day they received they invitation letter but it was because someone had cancelled.

One more thing to add, the passport does not appear to be the new version that was supposed to come out in October.

I thought all passport issued from october will be the new format. Maybe IPS is not ready yet. Just applied via C & S last week, still waiting for interview/original docs

Not everyone will have the new version passport from Oct, 10. please read this news http://www.zeenews.com/news660376.html

It seems that they will utilise the old stocks first.

Btw, I had my interview on Sat 9th Oct, but still havent received the passport yet.
