Re: Passport Interview

Jaaz I did not use check and send service but it should not take more than 3/4 days if yours was sent in a batch. Perhaps you can check with the PO when it was sent. After HMPO receive your application it usually takes 2weeks to get the interview letter. Mine was issued around 2weeks of fee deductio...

Re: Passport Interview

I booked mine after receiving the letter which I received on the 2nd day from issue date. This letter is sent through 1st class post. You would need to call the number on the letter giving them your reference number printed on the letter. So it is unlikely that without a reference number they will b...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Thanks Apple02. Yes I went for a private ceremony. I didn't use c&s and sent it straight via recorded delivery. Though suggest to use special delivery and cross on secure delivery (on the form) for the return of document, as my documents were returned using 2nd class post and the envelope was open. ...

Re: October 2013 - Naturalisation Application Timeline

That probably is the reason. It used to be first alphabet of your surname followed by numbers. So this must be your HO reference number. Don't worry too much things will be alright.

Re: October 2013 - Naturalisation Application Timeline

Usually the ref number on acknowledgement starts with NFEE. Did you all paid by cheque? May be for cheques they use a different reference starting with A,b, c etc.

Thanks
Its mainly section 6(2) Naturalization as a spouse of BC. Did you apply as a spouse if not it is a mistake from their side. If its not as a spouse and based on residence it should be 6(1).

Re: October 2013 - Naturalisation Application Timeline

You are quite right nionlight, it may be the case that information/checks are required on some of those waiting, but how come such checks are not completed by now looking at miraculous 5days approval time for two of the November applicants. Don't know why is it happening to us.
