As an example there shud be a gap of 2 months for an indian tourist visa - is there anything like this mentioned for UKBA. Moreover - few of the genuine circumstances are : 1) parent...

Infact you asked quadruple instead of a couple. :-) Also, this topic would be irrelevant if you have already applied for a Tourist Visa(Visitor Visa) . Dont think that you would receive a refund or make any amendments. Here are the answers to your queries.: 1. which visa cateogary i need to select w...

Personally, I used a sketch pen. It has a sponge at the back. Rub it on the finger, make a print on a blank paper first as it will drain out the excess. then make an imprint on the orginal paper. Best if if you attach the form to a cardboard. P.S. Would recommend to do this when the baby/child is sl...

is there a refund process for the VISA payment? There is no refund for VISA fees once you apply. You can have the OCI and the VISA sticker together on the same passport. Also, dont think they will remove the VISA sticker when you get OCI. Both the VISAs are valid and you can choose - which one you w...

There is a third queue which is on the left side - if you are facing the entrance door for OCI collection. You ideally don't need to come as early as 0600hrs as that queue is a bit shorter. on the plus side - there is a cloth shed to protect you from the weather. you submit your passport and come in...

Re: Trying to Cut a few weeks out of the whole process

Step 2 cannot be carried out while you do not have your British passport because in the Surrender form - you would have to enter British Passport Details.
