Thank u for posting your timeline experience on renunciation.congratulations
Recently on Apr 27, 2022, myself and my wife became naturalized citizens. Yesterday I started working for Renunciation process through VFS site step by step guide.
I completed Step 2 of Online Govt application site by filling all particulars and also printed the form. There was a little doubt on one item in the application. In the application they are asking to fill the “Indian PP details” ( PP was issued in Feb 2019) including family details of Father, Mother etc, and also they are asking Nationality of Spouse. Here I got confused, what to indicate. Since they are asking Indian PP details, I indicated my wife’s nationality as India . I do not know whether I am right to indicate INDIA (since she obtained US naturalization only on 27 April 2022). Plz advise me , by the by what did you indicate. Did you write USA or India? If I made a mistake, then do I have restart the Govt Application again , even though I got the ARN for the Govt application that I already filled . Your advice will be appreciate3d.
Secondly, after printing the Govt form, I went to step 3 of the VFS site and got stuck up. Since I did not register with VFS , I started creating an a/c by registering with particulars , they sent a mail to activate . I activated and got a message that my A/c was successfully activated. Then I tried to login into VFS A/c with my password,, but could not be logged. The reason is not known. Every time it says, activate even though I got msg of activation, and one time it says “Application not found” and many times when I log in, it says “ Access Denied” error 1020 and the owner , (I.e. VFS) be contacted to resolve the issue. As such I am unable to proceed with step 3 onwards.
I do not know whether you faced such problems. Plz guide me as how to proceed Step 3. Do you advise to use fedex service to submit the application. I want to pay the fee by cashier checks. If I send by UPS , do I need to pay for return fee or VFS will pay themselves for returning my pp with certificate.
I am an old man of 83 yrs, and am not familiar with this, as such my request to you to kindly help me
Grateful, if you could advise
