Visitor Visa - Photo requirement

Hi,

I noticed applicant doesn't need to enclose 2 photos with application. Have they dropped photo requirement as they take biometrics?

Thanks,
Rajesh

Re: OCI (Minor applicant) experience

I noticed VFS is charging £1.50 by default for SMS (text) service. I think that is optional and while paying we should ask them to take off as I have email and online to check current status.

I think its a scam to charge 1.50 by default.

Re: MINOR CHILD OCI thumb impression

I don't think it would a problem if you take impression of left thumb on printed application form. I do not think they have any mechanism to compare thumb impressions.

Re: OCI (minor) - Thumb impression

HCI has not specified any color but I think black should be ok. I had used blue ink, bought it from ebay. If you have time then you can order. If you are based in London then you can collect mine from central London.

Re: OCI shenanigans

Thanks ILR4PVM.

I followed point 6 and it helped me to fulfil point 7 requirement. I didn't read point 7 correctly, I was reading on phone, just before last night's sleep.

Many thanks for your useful post. Cheers!
