I filed for OCI at HCI London via Royal Mail more than 2 weeks ago, but have not received any acknowledgment so far. Royal Mail confirms receipt via its website. I had enclosed a self address SD envelope but have yet to receive my originals from them. The online tracking simply says "No records foun...

ILR Application after employment gap

Hello, Was wondering what the opinion of the learned members here was in this case: I came to UK in June 2005 on a work permit for 5 years. In November 2009, I was granted a HSMP visa. I was continuously employed till March 2010 after which I was made redundant. I have the payslips to support the em...

Silly, replying to myself, but on other threads, people have said being unemployed is "not a problem". Maybe not officially, but do i stand a higher chance of being rejected?

Question on ILR requirements

Hello, I am a bit unclear on what my situation is: I have been in UK for nearly 5 years, and will be eligible for ILR application in May.

Sorry to butt in, but could you please expand on this: If baby is born in UK before you/your husband get your ILR, baby is entitled to british citizenship by registration . So if the parents get ILR, the baby can immediately apply for British citizenship (assuming he was born before the ILR happened...

Thank you for the reply. When you say every one for himself, do they not consider stuff like income etc in making the decision? As current dependants they have no income, in fact the children wont even be able to give the citizenship test!

Citizenship for dependants

I have 2 children who were born in the UK, and are my dependants. We will be eligible for applying for citizenship soon, but I am not really sure that I want to lose my Indian passport, OCI not withstanding. Is it possible that only the children and the spouse can apply for citizenship? Note that th...

Finally got the refund, the same manner as the mode of payment.

took 15 days from date of rejection.

Incidentally they rejected me a second time: I resent the old application form. They want a brand new form. No fee was charged the second time.

I had my application rejected as well, however the accompanying letter said that "arrangements will be made to refund the application fee".

Any idea how long does it take? The 0870 number for UKBA is never reachable.
