Re: Medical Insurance for Parents Visiting UK

follow the link in the above post and pick the first non advert, used them every time pretty cheap and give good cover and most towns have any office that can do this for them, you should also be able to do it on line too!

PIO to OCI

have decided to try and convert my PIO to OCI. Has anyone done it in the UK. Do you need to leave original PIO and foreign Passport at the time of application or just when it its ready for collection? In case of spouse application do I need to leave original marriage certificate?

Re: Can my daughter get admission in Indian School

This topic has been debated at length in the past , try a search to find the posts.

However most children who have British Passports and live in India do not pay more for general schooling.
