rajat,

I would suggest going to her GP. They make a small charge, £15-£20, which is small change, given that you are spending over £1000 for the whole application.

Newyorker, I would suggest going to the child's GP and ask them to sign. They normally charge you a small fee for this, but its the safest option.

I am a recently naturalised British citizen, and have applied for a passport. I have now been called for an interview as is the current procedure. Any idea what kind of questions they ask at the passport interview and how long will it last?

Hi motoslcross
To be honest the case officer did not ask too many questions to my wife. He just asked her where she was working. Apart from that he spent all the time examining her documents in detail and photocopying them. Sorry I can not be of much more help!

Are you suggesting that if my wife just applies via the FLR(M) form [and forgetting about SET(M) or SET(O)], this will not be treated as a 'straightforward' application? Your views will be most welcome.
