He can be fairly active and its hard to keep him still, so any details of the ceremonywould be helpful ...

I'm reassured that everyone seems to be in the same boat and the delay is not restricted to only some applications. Maybe the school holidays/Olympics means lots of staff are on holidays and UKBA are short-staffed? Can anyone shed anymore light?

Please see the topic below where this is discussed. According to OCI rules, for a minor to achieve OCI status, one of the parents must be eligible for an OCI, i.e one of the parents must hold a foreign passport.

Yes you do need to register with police if staying for more than 180 days and also the validity is for 15 years(as compared to lifelong for OCI).

Maybe then its only certain NCS offices who have this requirement. They do need to standardise it and avoid confusing applicants.

A minor is not eligible for OCI until one of the parents is also eligible i.e when one of the parents has acquired British nationality only then can you apply for OCI for the child. You can apply for PIO in the meantime, it is basically the same rights and priveleges but is only valid for 15 years.
