British Citizenship

Discussion in 'Travel' started by Homunculus, Apr 11, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My girlfriend is in the process or renewing her South African passport which has run out. In order for her passport to be renewed she needs a letter from British Consulate with proof that she has not applied for British Citizenship.

    We have been writing since February but with no results. We have also called numerous times and been put onto other departments and then told "oh yes you'll have great difficulty getting through to them...try faxing them". Several faxes later still no reply.

    Is there any other body we can contact to chase this up?

    Also assuming all goes well and the letter arrives and her passport is renewed how long will a Visa take to process for a week long trip to New York?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
     
  2. Had a bit of a problem with my passport as well. Try this link, not too sure how relevant it will be to you but they are certainly helpful with and may be able to advise you what to do next.

    Good luck - it will be faster and more efficient, though more expensive to fly to Jhb or Cape Town and get the thing done in person than try to do it remote control from the UK.
