Re: Applying OCI for Minor Only

Not sure of the charges that you have to pay at VFS centre however I am pretty sure that you will be better off carrying prepaid Royal mail envelopes (2 nos).

Re: Applying OCI for Minor Only

I had no issues in booking or attending the appointment. Upon entry, the reception desk ensures that you have the appointment letter and application form for the said appointment. I dont think you will face any problems by registering details this way on the VFS website.

Re: Applying OCI for Minor Only

I registered the details of my child as the main applicant to overcome this problem. Given that there is DOB detail along with the applicant details, they know that the applicant is a minor.

Re: PLEASE HELP : PBS Dependent ILR questions

I have received a response from Home office through public inquiry email id that suggested that PBS dependents are also covered by the guidelines to calculate the continuous 5 year stay in UK for PBS applicants. This means that the 90 day entry buffer that is applicable to PBS main applicants should...

Re: Time for submission of ILR

The key thing that needs to be noted from the (link above) Home Office response was the confirmation that the guidance of calculating continuous stay is applicable to PBS dependents too. All queries related to visa issuance or entry date can be answered based on that. I agree that PBS dependent cate...

Re: Time for submission of ILR

This is relevant to the main PBS visa holder and not the dependents. PBS Dependents require 5 years residence counted from date of entry to the UK. I was doing some web research to figure out if someone else has had this question and got a response from Home Office or not. As it turns out from the ...

Re: Time for submission of ILR

PBS Dependents can continue to extend their PBS visas but only if the partner gets ILR based on the PBS route. Why should they be exempt if they joined their partners at a later date? Hey CR001, I am just trying to make sense of the set of rules for PBS dependent applicants to qualify for ILR witho...
