I Ramesh XXXXXXX have a sister in India and she got married as well since 1970 approx. hole family have been British citizen because we were born in Uganda at a time British were ruling so we were automatically became citizen and held British passport but never renewed now she traveled on Indian passport to UK with wrong information. now she applied for renewal for British passport they refused .Our ref : IND007093M Dear Mrs. XXXXXXX, This letter is regarding your application for a British Passport. From the information you have provided it would appear that you are not currently eligible forα a British passport. Although you acquired Citizen of United Kingdom and Colonies (CUKC) under section 12(2) of the British Nationality Art 1948, this does not confer the Right of Abode in UK. In addition, when you acquired citizenship of India, you had lost the state of CUKC and thus, not eligible for a British Overseas passport. Since 1 April 2008, both the FCO and the IPS have charged custmers for administering a passport application, rather than for issuing a passport. This means that fees for passport applications made in the UK and overseas are non-refundable in the event that the applic- ation is unsuccessful. It applies to all forms of British passport applications. There is no right to appeal against this decision. However, if you have concern as to theα way in which your case has been handled, then you should direct all correspondence, giving as much details as possible to:[email protected] Yours sincerely XXXXX XXXXX Passport Officer Regional Passport Processing Center, Hong Kong.
What do you want to know about this ? Are you asking if the decision is correct? Are you saying that your sister has been resident in India since 1970? When and where was she born please and when did she acquire indian citizenship?
