Hi Guys, I had applied for Naturalisation which has been approved and I have the ceremony on June 13th.

Hi pkul7de, I read your long post and I am really happy you got there. I am very curious to know how you got your OCI in the end.

Re: British passport for British citizen child born in India

Please can somebody answer my query below?

I wanted to know if this same procedure is applicable if the child was born in the UK but currently residing in India? Or is it applicable only to children born in India to British parents.

Thanks a lot.

Re: Settlement visa for child from India, VAF4A Timelines pl

Thanks CR001. "She would have to apply from scratch again" Do you mean she has to apply for ILR (or is it ILE?) again from India? Or a settlement visa? If she is successful with a returning resident visa, will she have her ILR back? Its mainly due to our child (health issues) that she has been there.

Re: Maintanance for Child settlement visa

Hi CR001,

Is there any other quicker alternative for me to bring my son to the UK?

Going through the settlement visa will take atleast 6 months from now (3 more months for maintenance and 3 months for processing the visa).

Thanks

Will it not help the case if I showed them previous years' earnings and other evidence?

Currently my son is eligible for a British citizenship through MN1. If the mother loses ILR, will he no l...
