@john353:
i'll be going through the same visa process now and am wondering if you could share more details.
so, did you manage to get visa?
also, did you have to get marriage & birth certificates stamped by indian embassy?
BTW- in our case, all of us have ILR.
Thanks

Hi vjm, One of the criterion for ILR is 'duration of absence from UK' and you would need to fill in those dates of absence in the appl form. Your absence fr UK is for substantial period, however, you would need to clarify the grounds for that in a letter or end of form (for additiona info section). ...

I assume you would be taking into consideration the average exchange rate. Rs 7 lacs equates to <10000 GBP per current rates. See from the link above if you can claim any points.

Hi Raj, Many thanks for providing that link. I am sure that one would need to renounce UK citizenship if one wants to go for Indian citizenship under OCI scheme (as per their application form). Indian law doesn't allow dual citizenship afaik. Let me know if you/anyone have more updated information o...

I think the wordings on the approval letter are important. What does the approval letter says..eligible, approved, assigned, accepted for BC?
You would need to surrende the indian passport on the day you acquire other (UK) nationality.

I think 'dual citizenship' allowed by india is a misconception and it's get confused with OCI (which doesn't allow you to have indian passport). Do you have any official reference stating that such bill was passed a few years ago (2003?) other than newspapers headlines which are misleading? If there...

A letter from current employer is desirable though not mandatory. Why do you need all those utility bills? It's not mentioned in the form. At PEO they ask for only those documents that are listed in the form unless you have some unusual circumstance. Regarding documents with joint names (w/ wife) - ...

Hi Hari, I have got similar questions as well which I'm trying to get answers for.

I'll let other members confirm this & ans...

Hi otuk07 It's up to 90 days per year with a max of 180 days. In certain circumstances, more can be allowed though they expect details on that from the applicant. I recently got my ILR and had about 60 days absence in one year though totalling less than 180 days and no question was asked at PEO. HTH

When I went to Croydon yesterday, their machine worked very well. Though if you don't intend to take that risk, go to bank and get the money or Postal order would be another option.

See whichever is best for you.
