Hi Phillips,

if you apply in person they give you a date on which you can collect your PIO card isnt it? Can some forum member who has recently done an inperson application please confirm this?

Regards

Hi InUkOnHsmp,

I have applied through post couldn't be bothered with the traveling and waiting in the long ques. In the HCI, London website they have mentioned that when you submit the application they also give you a date to collect the processed PIO card.

Cheers

Here are my timelines:

PIO for: Family (2 adults + 2 children)
Application Type: New
Method of application: In person at HCI London
Date of application: 16/04/2014
Date application received by HCI: 16/04/2014
Date of return of documents: 16/04/2014 (Same day in person application)
Date of PIO card Receipt: 29/04/2014 (date stamped on receipt on the date of application)

Really smooth process, I would recommend to all to make a visit to the HCI as its worth is at least for PIO application.

HTH

My son's PIO is approved. It doesn't allow me to edit original timelines post.

They have given a Passport lookalike grey color booklet, as oppose to traditional blue (passport), marked as PIO, has just two page inside, valid for 15 years. Its all hand written, not machine (computer) printed, outdated HCI and their infrastructure.

I was hoping they will stamp PIO vignette (sticker). Now I will have to carry this booklet along with his British passport, pain!

Best of luck those who are waiting...

Dear Forum members,

I'm looking to apply for PIO for my daughter who is Citizen by birth. I came across this statement in HCI and like to understand if this is a new process that PIO will be sent only through post?

COLLECTION PROCEDURE

PIO Cards can be received by the applicants by post only on the address given by them, for which they must be sending 'self-addressed paid special delivery envelopes' alongwith their applications at the time of submission – both at counter as well as by post.

Hi

I am planning to apply PIO for myself and family. I have some queries regarding PIO family application (3 applications).

1. How many self addressed pre-paid spl del envelopes need to be submitted with family applications? Only 1 for all or separate for each applicant?
2. In pts 13 & 15, if applicant previously had Indian nationality and passport then parents and grad parents details are required or not?
3. At the top Form says - (To be filled in duplicate), what does it mean?

Thanks.

1. Only 1 prepaid envelope is enough

2. No need for parents and grandparents details if you had Indian passport

3. No need to send duplicate forms- just one form per applicant is enough
