rg1,

They will not accept anysize other than 51 x 51. British PP photo is 45 x 35- is not acceptable. If you do not want to waste your time and money, then do 51 x 51 photo. Snappy Snap do it- I think 4 for £15. I have personally seen many people been refused at HCI counter.

However people who are submitting their sister or uncle's or some other family member's appl then they are not acceptin...

krazydude,

Thank you very much. I went to snappy snap,got 4 PP photo of 51x 51mm for 13.99.

I am going to submit my, my wife's and son's OCI appl. The website has asked to submit the appl. in person. Does that mean I need to take my wife and son with me or can i submit all the three appl. by myself?

OCI application

I am going to apply for OCI for my family. On HCI website it says the application has to be submitted in person. Does that mean I need to take my wife and son along with me. I tried to contact HCI, no one picking up the phone.

Could someone (in similar situation ) advice.

parent's signature is more than enough for surrendering the passport.

The thumb impression is asked when you are making a making new/renew passport, since it goes onto the passport. Like when you will apply for OCI, you will be asked to get baby's thumb impression.

You have got surrender certificate. Therefore you don't need anything else other than copy of british passport.

I applied for surrender cert. last tuesday. Haven't received it yet? How long did it took for you to receive the certificate?

I am using the same photo that I took for my British passport. That should do, wouldn't it?

Infact, British passport states "Photos must measure 45mm by 35mm". That is the photo size you get in this country. How did you manage to get a different size (51 x51mm)? Where?
