Just need you folks to look at my checklist before I send it off to DC, to make sure am not missing anything please. I am renewing my UK passport, and am applying for a UK one for my son ( 3yrs old ) who was born in Canada

1. Application forms forms for both of us filled out...check

2. Forms countersigned especially my son's form .....check

3. credit card form filled.....check

4. I am including the following: my old passport, my and son's long birth cert, wedding certificate...check

5. using UPS or registered post to send it...check

6. 2 passport photos each ( 1 signed at the back by countersigned folk )

What am I missing

cheers

Keep copies of everything.

A copy of the ID page of your son's Canadian passport would also be helpful.

Sent everything in, it shows that they received it on the 26th of Jan, nothing heard or received back from the embassy.

How long did your passport renewal and new born kid application take?

Cheers

Nothing received yet either. I thought taking the money meant that passport should be on it's way?

That's what I thought too... but I've also heard that the new designed passport is more difficult to produce.

They are keeping my original driver's licence and my old-but-still-valid passport, it's very inconvenience when ppl ask for ID.

For two adults+shipping+insured for few hundred dollars.

I called the Careline last night to check the status. Our applications are under "examiner's review".

Use a free VOIP provider to call home (+44) and pay 0.69 plus VAT per minute, a standard call normally last for 4 minutes. it's much cheaper to use the 1-900 number from Canada.

Why did you send your drivers licence? You don't have to ... and you should at most have sent a copy.

You may be driving illegally if you are not carrying it with you.

Because we are both applying due to legal name change.

Read the requirement in form-c1-notes:
If the name has been changed otherwise than by marriage or divorce, documentary evidence that it has been changed for all purposes is needed. A deed poll and/or statutory declaration together with at least three other documents in the new identity would normally be sufficient.

You're learning the hard way that changing your name is more hassle than it is worth.

They have (until recently at least) accepted photocopies of ID documentation.

Irrespective of the reason, you may be driving illegally if you do not have your drivers licence. Check the law in your province/state and if that is the case, you have to go and get a replacement before you drive any further.
