Mandy and I traveled to the Kenyan High Commission. We were under time pressure as I’d banked on getting my passport size photo at Wood Green Tube Station- wrong!
After nearly being physically assaulted by a Tube Guard’s walkie talkie. I was informed NO Tube stations have passport picture booths anymore (when did that happen?)
So after a hasty dash to Snappy Snaps we were on our way…..
At 1 minute to 12 (the office closed at noon – phew!) We entered the building.
We had our visa applications ready and duly handed them over.
Now please don’t judge me on what I say next. We have 45 years service for William Hill between us, so you would think we would be a little wiser…
We handed over our passports and £30.00 each!
Did we get a receipt and an official stamp to acknowledge they now had possession of our passports?
Nooooooo – we were given a raffle ticket!
And not even a raffle ticket each. One between us!
I can collect my passport next Monday with my raffle ticket. It is going to be a long week.
Watch this space…..
