Indianadr ..it does say on your appointment letter that you do not have to bring royal mail envelopes to vfs offices under the Birmingam CGI.

They use DX courier instead.

Bit of a rip off as DX courier sends the documents to many places using royal mail.

Another tip : when you are filling up the DX courier or royal mail envelopes with your own address ( for them to send the documents back to you) take a quick photo of the tracking numbers on the envelops.

Will be helpful to tracks the docs once you get the dispatch message from vfs..

How on earth are you able to post future dates of the events that have not yet occurred ..

You definitely must be a fortune teller !

We did not receive OCI which was processed on 16th March so emailed today and got reply back as due to Corona virus our offices closed but once it opened we will let you know through website.
So I think at the moment they are not doing anything in UK but they might process OCI application through all the background checks and other necessary things in India but we will not receive OCI until they reopen.
Let's hope for the best that will be soon...

Timeline of OCI re-issue for minor child under OCI Miscellaneous Services on account of renewal of UK passport

Application Date: 15 June 2020
VFS Center: Hounslow
Date of acknowledgment: 16 June 2020
Original docs Received: 23 June 2020 (had kept old OCI Card & returned it with cancelled stamp in it)
Documents Printing Status: Processed on 19 June 2020
Dispatched From MEA (OCI) New Delhi: 19 June 2020
Document received At London: 19 June 2020
PASSPORT SUBMITTED IN PERSON at VFS: Not required under new regulation
Dispatched by VFS: 23 June 2020
OCI DOCUMENT RECEIVED: 24 June 2020

Pretty straightforward timelines for OCI re-issue. The biggest challenge is getting VFS appointment which they've considerably limited - 25% of original capacity.
