Your wife's case may not as simple since it involves name change. It may be a MISC service which doesn't mean fast and easy. There may be internal verification/approvals required which may be delaying the process. Applying for Visa normally takes 5 days and is done through VFS UK. So it can wait lat...

Since it was 4th November when you have your acknowledgement date, roughly translates to 3 December when your OCIs should be ready to collect . By 29th Nov you should see something like processed in Delhi which will indicate normal progress :) Second was mine and my sisters. Both of our parents have...

That's right Only Safe period is between 20-50 years . Once you cross 50, every time you get a renewal of passport, you will have to apply for OCI Misc services (reduced fees) to get a fresh OCI booklet and U sticker stamped on the passport . Which means another 10 years before you are due for anoth...

Re: OCI delayed

Congrats . At least they have said it is granted. Did they mention any different acknowledgement number in the email which would help to check the 'real status'. I would assume you should shoot them another mail after 7 days asking if it ready for collection at HCI London ? I got their email reply t...

Re: Wife's last name changed

I would suggest the following : 1. Best option is you & your wife submit in person at HCI. Then the case officer can vet your details then and there thus avoiding anxiety of postal outcome. 2. Carry your marriage certificate in original. 3. When you go for Indian Passport surrender before you can ap...
