Re: OCI documents required ?

Hi,

- royal mail prepaid envelop

How are you planning to get the envelopes? The application guide suggests 2 Royal Mail next day Silver Plastic envelopes with postage paid.

Are you getting the silver envelope or the normal envelope?


Thanks

Don't know the reason behind it, but I saw it in another thread, where someone in...

Re: English Requirement for NATURALISATION

Yes, its listed, and I used the same PBS calculator successfully for my ILR application last year.

What I am not able to get is the points for Degree separately. I can see points for overall, salary, maintenance,english language, but not degree.
