    Date Of Acknowledgment 11-MAY-2010
    Application Status
    Registration Status UnderProcess
    Documents Printing Status NOT PRINTED
    Documents Dispatched to Concerned Mission/Office on NOT DISPATCHED
    Documents Received at LONDON NOT YET


    Thanks

    Friends,

    I found a tracker on immihelp.com of a person who applied exactly 2 weeks earlier than me. His tracker is:

    Date Of Acknowledgment 27-APR-2010
    Application Status
    Registration Status Granted On 13-JUL-2010
    Photo/Signature Scanned On 08-JUL-2010
    Documents Printing Status PRINTED
    Documents Printed On 14-JUL-2010
    Documents Dispatched to Concerned Mission/Office on 15-JUL-2010
    Documents Received at LONDON NOT YET


    My expected OCI timeline (could vary by 1 week):

    Date Of Acknowledgment 11-MAY-2010
    Registration Status Granted On 27-JUL-2010
    Photo/Signature Scanned On 22-JUL-2010
    Documents Printing Status PRINTED
    Documents Printed On 28-JUL-2010
    Documents Dispatched to Concerned Mission/Office on 29-JUL-2010
    Documents Received at LONDON 05-AUG-2010

    I shall keep you posted whether my expected timeline is kept or not.

    Cheers

    hi arti79,
    did you try to call hci london and ask for explanation? I assume you didnt even get photo/signature scanned date updated yet?
  5. arti79

    arti79 Registered Users (C)

    my application was acknowledge on 6 may, photograph and signature scanned on 30 june. no-one at hci london ever answers the phone or responds to emails. have u had any news yet?

    June 30 should have gotten you the OCI card by now. However, if there is a backlog YMMV. If you are in London, a visit to HCI is in order.

    hi anton, i'm in leicester so a journey to hci would have to be worthwhile. if my status is showing nothing more than photograph and signature scanned, is it still worth going? just wish someone would answer the phone there.

    arti79 Registered Users (C)

  10. sunilkc

    sunilkc Registered Users (C)

    No luck, still no update. Not even photo/signature scanned update. Not sure what is happening there?
  11. sunilkc

    sunilkc Registered Users (C)

    arti79, did you apply in person or by post?
  12. sunilkc

    sunilkc Registered Users (C)

    I just called HCI london OCI department and they told me that they just started doing 2nd week of May now, so I should get some progress done over next 2 weeks. She advised me to call back after 2 weeks if I see no progress on my case (already 12 week today). I would like to assume that I should see my photo/signatures to be scanned this week and more progress next week. Fingers crossed!

    arti79 Registered Users (C)

    ok, so yours should be ready in next couple of weeks. they despatched from delhi today so soon i should be picking it up from london. u got through to hci on he phone?? wow, every time i tried, no luck. i applied by post. u?
  14. sunilkc

    sunilkc Registered Users (C)

    You applied by post- that's why they did photo/signature scans for your earlier. They tend to process applications by post faster than acknowledgement date would indicate because they appear to work by the date of receipt of postal application. On what date did you post your application. NB- They do pick up the call if you call between 2:30-5:30pm.

    Application Status
    Registration Status Granted On 09-AUG-2010
    Photo/Signature Scanned On 05-AUG-2010

    Hi there,

    I have just joined this forum because i am getting no joy from HCI London. I applied for OCI for a family of four on June 2nd 2010. Currently and literally as i write my wife and son's status changed to documents received on 7th Sept at London mission office. however mine and my daughter's status is still "under process" since June 2nd and has never changed status.
    I emailed the HCI but has not received any response. has anyone come across applications received as a one family but processed separately? would appreciate if any one has more info
