Hi guys, Last week my wife submitted an application to surrender her passport and yesterday we received her Surrender certificate and renounced passport.

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

You've been really helpful. Really glad to read your response humanityrultz!! Well you could have answered it in a better way but I guess it's just the way you are used to replying. I did call them and they are not aware of any website issues so next time please double check before posting any false...

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

Hi humanityrultz, I checked my status this morning and it still shows 'under-process' but the date/time on top of it is current. Just wondering as to where did you get this news that 'OCI Online status enquiry website' is down? Also if that's the case, mine and other pending cases may have been proc...

Re: British Passport recd/Interview call

Thanks alterhase58

Called HMPO on weekends and they confirmed it is definitely an error from their end.
Someone who's been through a JCAP need not attend an interview.

Asked us to ignore/discard the letter.

Cheers!!

British Passport recd/Interview call

Hi members, My wife received her British passport yesterday and today she received a letter from HMPO to attend an interview as part of her application process. I feel there is some miscommunication as the letter states that she needs to book an appointment for an interview before receiving her pass...

Re: OCI registration online - passport details are of the surrendered indian passport or the current uk one?

Hi azorpheunt Why would it be an Indian passport number if you are applying for an OCI? I believe you have already surrendered your Indian passport and received your Surrender cert with your cancelled passport. Your Indian passport is no longer valid. It's got to be your British passport number whic...

Re: OCI card application -Self address envelopes from Royal Mail

Hi, I checked into my local RM post office and they weren't sure of self addressed envelope so asked me to buy a standard A4 size envelope and stamp it of required cost. As I wasn't sure of the weight, I paid for DX A4 sized self addressed envelope (1 no.) at VFS in London and they charged me £12.33...

Re: OCI Application - missing Company Registration Cert

If income is not a criteria for OCI why ask for income/earning documents as circumstances may be different for everyone i.e. Employed, Self-employed, Director or Un-employed. Absolutely agree that if applicants were Indian citizens before naturalisation, it should be a straightforward process of onl...

Re: OCI Application - missing Company Registration Cert

Hi Even I am a director of a Ltd company and due for an OCI application. I still fail to understand why would Indian government need to see our proof of earnings in UK. They have absolutely nothing to do with earnings made abroad as we are Brits and no more Indians. Even NRIs don't pay any tax in In...

Re: Check the status of your application online - New service

Hope I am still allowed to post in this thread after attending the ceremony. Does everyone receive the text from HMPO when the passports are posted? I have read that people receive text on their status from HMPO & DX separately. Is it signed for or dropped through the doors or into the mailbox? I ha...
