this question is especially for Madgy and Shalom, but any member's valuable remarks would be highly appreciated... we recently had a baby boy and we need to update this to our visa office in newdelhi. i am currently in US and getting my boys passport would take me around 3 months here, However i will get his birth certificate by 2 weeks. i have learned from this forum inorder to update a child will require us to send baby's notarized passport copy. since my current status is RBVO, my question is
I. Can i update via sending case specific inquiry to the VO and also attaching the scan copies to the mail or need to download the files and send them via post?
II. should i have to do it right away or wait for his passport to arrive?
Congratulations! What a bundle of joy. My love to him and his mother.
In my case, I notified London VO while my wife was pregnant. Before delivery, they sent the required documents to submit along with the baby's application.
For a start, you need to inform them of the arrival of your baby (if they are not aware already).
You will NEED to get his passport before you can submit his application. Remember, he is treated as full human being. So his passport number, validity dates, place of issue and a photocopy of the bio data page of the passport are required. They will require you to download the application form and send by post to them with his passport photos
I'm afraid you have to wait for his passport (as per London VO). Don't forget the $150 processing fee.
