Re: OCI Application from India

Yes you can though provide sufficient time for checks to be conducted, although it could be much faster, you still need to make an online application, and contact nearest FRRO.

Re: Travelling with new born..how soon

You need passport for your newborn. Visa only if you want to enter back. I don't know your medical situation and can't comment on doctors advice, though we travelled within 23 days of my child being born here, everything was fine. Considering you won't be coming back extending the visa for few days ...

Re: Travelling to India

How many days you intend to visit India? If it is 30 days or so, surrender Indian passport, get e-visa and go there. After returning, apply for OCI in UK. If your stay is 3 months or more, then you can take long term visa and apply for OCI in india. If you can wait, get OCI work first and then go t...

Above a you need to be sure whether you are claiming points on your own basis or your sponsor is certifying your maintenance. I have you the link with document which tells you exac...

In case you do wish to travel get an indian passport first and then you may apply for T2 D visa in ...

Re: Travelling to India

I think you are confusing yourself with surrender of indian passport and OCI. DO NOT travel on Indian passport after getting your British Passport, as not only would you encounter a penalty when you surrender your passport, but your indian passport as well might be seized at the airport on the way b...

Re: Confusion regarding maintenance

Maintenance is certified by the employer on the CoS. A Copy of the CoS and letter from employer certifying the same is what you need to provide. As you suggest he has already mentioned on your offer letter you can use that as the letter along with CoS if the last line under "Migrant's employment" on...

Re: Consent from Partner on ILR

Since this is your application and your bank statments HO are requesting your consent to conduct checks on your account.

Consent from partner is not required. Also no need to send her Bank Statements.

If however, the bank account is joined then consent is required.
