Hi Learning to pass,

many thanks for your update and nice to know that some March cases are proceeding positively. Will be keen to know how long did it take you to send the pasport and recieve it back duly stamped , as and when .

Are there anyone else who have applied in the last week of March 2014 and heard any thing about the status ?

I have applied on 27th march and have to travel to India on 30th May and am wondering till when can I wait for the OCI BEFORE I apply for the Indian visa seperately ? ( Should I wait till 15th May before applying for the Indian visa ? Any advice please ?

Cheers

Hi LearningtoPass,
Do you have any Idea about the return address should be Home address or any other address to send British Passsport and OCI Booklet to any other Address? In my case, Nobody will be at home address. So, Can i mention Office Address on Return Speical Delivery?

Cheers,
dnkumar

This question may have been answered before, but could someone please clarify?

What documents should I send for postal OCI family application to London?
Should they be originals and photocopies?
Should the photocopies be self attested?
Should I send a separate set of photocopies of parents for my child's application?

I am sorry if the questions are too many, but I recently had a bitter experience applying for surrender certificate and don't want it repeated.

Hi
I am not sure about this, but if I were you I will keep things simple and put home address only. Good thing with SDE is you can collect your delivery later at your preferred time.
Good luck!

On my OCI booklet it has my full UK address, do I need to inform HCI each time I move to new address and apply for new OCI booklet??
Does anyone know anything about this?

Hi,

I don't think so, you need to change/apply every time when you changed address. some of people who is having Indian passport & OCI Card, their address was very old address on the passport and OCI booklet. Even on Brtish Passport address should not be there. So, as per my assumption no need to apply/change every time when you changed home address.
