Re: British passport for British citizen child born in India

It will be very helpful. Thank you! I have few questions regarding this. 1. As you mentioned that we can request the duration for the New Visa to the new born child, For example, if I request 1.5 years visa on the form, will it be an exit formality too when travel to UK after 10 months later and so...

Re: British passport for British citizen child born in India

Congratulations Arun, So in your opinion is it better to follow up with them every couple of weeks for the status of passport until it arrives ? May not be necessary. But in my case they have exceeded the specified turn around time of 16 weeks. So i had to push hard on them to get the work done. Th...

Re: British passport for British citizen child born in India

There is a 14 day cooling off period after which we have to pay fixed penalty for late application of Visa or Exit permit as the child is staying illegally after getting the passport.

Hi Arun, I had my interview done on 16th March in India. I received a communication from HMPO Liverpool on 10th Feb that they have completed UK and Overseas checks are pending. I called HMPO today, they said that Overseas checks are still pending. I think the delay is down to the "overseas checks" ...

Nope. It is assessed case by case. So it may or may not be applicable to every application.

Re: British passport for British citizen child born in India

Hi,

There is no hard and fast rule. You can make an A4 page with 3-4 photos as a collage depends on the photo resolution and make your best guess.

Make 2-3 A4 pages if you have more photos

Re: British passport for British citizen child born in India

Thanks for the update Macro. It looks like they have recently improved their communication. I did not receive any such emails. I have also seen similar communication email on some other forum recently.

I am yet to hear any update after my interview (Nearly 6 weeks). Crazy stuff.
