Why not just use the iPhone backlight?

On a separate point, I just received a request for payment of my daughter's IHS surcharge!! I received that immediately after the following email to which I said "WTF?!?" Fingers crossed this is a sign of positive things to come!

Thank you for applying for a UK visa. Your visa application has been received and is under consideration. We aim to process non settlement applications within 15 working days (unless you have opted for the Priority Visa service), and settlement applications within 60 working days.

Unfortunately, the processing of your application has not been straightforward and we will be unable to decide your application within our customer service targets. We are continuing to work on your application and aim to make a decision as soon as possible.

We will write to you again if there is any change to this. Please do not attend the Visa Application Centre until you have been advised that your application has been decided and that your passport is ready for collection.

Kind Regards,

UK Decision Making Centre

Hi - your daughter is not a British citizen? Or do they charge for children with British passports born outside UK too?

MP involved and only response has been from HO after i made official complaint about the service
" we only partly uphold your complaint because we contacted you after 4 months to tell you it would not be processed with 60 working days"

She is Australian, but is a biological child of my wife so has indefinite leave to enter. So you are correct, I should not pay. However, I don't want to hold my case up while I argue the toss so I've paid it and will request a refund after I'm approved, along with refund of my priority processing fees, UKVI Contact Centre call costs, and other related costs Godwilling.

Matt.

They are not supposed to, but it seems that some kids who are British citizens but not passport holders are being charged the IHS fee. That would just be down to a lack of knowledge on the part of the UKVI staff.

No. Poor/no forward planning is the cause of the current mess, nothing to do with the citizenship of applicants.
