OCI Application Process - Urgent Question

The status of my OCI application is 'Processed' and the documents have been received at HCI, London. My questions are: 1. What documents should I send now? 2. Can I use one Special Delivery envelope for my family (three passports), or should I use separate envelopes? Any help is very much appreciated.

Can you provide more details about what the driving offense was for and when it happened and why it went to court etc. If you did not declare it on your form or ask, how is NCS suppose to say or advise anything about it. With such an important application as naturalisation, it is really never a goo...

Thanks Char. I understand councils don't issue the certificates. But the certificate does not state 'Issued *at* Home Office, London', hence the confusion.

Has anyone here had a similar issue?

Passport Application - Questions

I was naturalised in August and just got around to applying for my passport. In the field where it asks for 'Place of issue of naturalisation certificate' I wrote Leicester (place of ceremony) and the person at PO check and send refused to accept it, stating that the field should say 'Home Office Lo...

Thanks Jambo. So in effect that means that Right of Abode is not equivalent to proof that you are a British Citizen.

If a child has Certificate of Entitlement to Right of Abode in the passport (Indian passport), can this be used as proof in lieu of certificate of naturalisation while applying for British passport in UK? Or s...

Thanks vinny. I thought so. I guess I will just apply for settlement in India for her and request that the application be expedited. I am not sure they will agree though.

The child was born in India and at the time of her birth both parents were on ILR (settled).

I am not that fussed about applying for her citizenship. I am more interested in getting her to the UK quickly and apply for her settlement here if that is possible.

We want to bring her to the UK, but want to do so quickly. I understand that processing settlement visa/passport can take up to 3 months. I would be grat...

See Q22 British Citizenship – Good Character Requirement FAQs Thanks for the link. I guess the relevant question is Q22 on non-payment of taxes and tax evasion.

Hi all, Sorry if this has been asked before!!
