UK Passport Renewal
You have to apply for UK passport renewal before the expiry
of its validity period otherwise you will not be allowed to travel abroad. It
should be noted here that there is no particular time at which your passport
needs to be renewed, you can renew your UK passport anytime. At the time of renewing
your UK passport, the outstanding period on your current passport is
transferred to your renewed passport, with the maximum time limit of 9 months.
UK Second Passport
United Kingdom allows their citizens to hold second UK
passport alongside their current passport. If you do business and your work
requires back to back travel to different countries, there might be a chance
that if you apply for visa to one country, it may take weeks for the passport
to come back to you and if during that period you have to travel some other
place then having a single passport will impede your travel. To avoid such
situations, applying for a second passport is advisable. Continue Reading….
OCI Card (Overseas Citizenship of India)
Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)
is a life-long visa. It is a multiple entry visa that allows the holder to
travel to India as many times as they wish. It also entitles the holder to stay
in India for as long as they wish to without the need for exiting India in 180
days. As the name suggests, it is an ‘overseas citizenship’ which grants the
holder more or less all rights like a normal citizen of India. Being a multiple
purpose visa, OCI holders are allowed to buy or sell any investments including
commercial and residential properties. They can also undertake any business
activities like a normal Indian national. Furthermore, the OCI card can be used
as a valid proof to apply for PAN card, open bank accounts and applying driving
licence in India. Continue Reading….

Surrender of Indian Passport
India is a country that does not allow dual citizenship for
its citizens. Indian law suggests that a person who acquire a foreign citizenship
should immediately surrender his or her passport at the nearest Indian
consulate or embassy.
People of Indian origin who have obtained UK citizenship has
a 90-day grace period to travel with an Indian passport. Within this time
frame, the person should renunciate his or her Indian citizenship and should
surrender the Indian passport. Once you surrender the Indian passport, the new
UK citizen of Indian origin will be provided with a surrender certificate which
should be kept safely. Continue Reading….
Legalisations and Apostille
If you want a document of one country to be legally
acceptable and recognisable in the other country, you need to legalise that
document in the UK. Now, this process of legalising and apostille of a document
usually involves a kind of certificate or stamp which is provided by the
country to which the document originally belongs to and that certificate should
be acceptable and recognisable in the country where the document is intended to
be used. In a very simple way this means that you cannot use a government
document of one country in another country without a certification from the
country where document has originated. Continue Reading….
