Advise - postal or in-person OCI application at HCI London

Post by annpgeorge » Thu Jun 13, 2013 7:16 am

I am traveling to India in 9 weeks and would like readers advise.

What is the current timeline for OCI

- postal applications in London?

- in-person applications in London?

I want to decide whether to post today or travel tomorrow to London.
Thanks

just read some of the other posts on postal application delays - go for in person application.

Postal takes about 8 weeks just to be acknowledged, after that I think the process is about 4-5 weeks to be granted. Definitely go in person if you can.

Just an update.

I applied in person on the 14th of June and my Documents were received back in London on the 11th of July. I collected them by post (sent docs on 11th of July and got them back on the 15th of July)
thank you for your help

Thanks for the info.
When u say "collected them by post", did you provide "Special delivery envelope (SDE)" while u submitted for OCI? If yes, would you get it inside HCI or you took SDE from an external post office?
