Change of name in passport
I have recently received my British citizenship and have applied for a British passport.
however I have just got married, so applied for the passport in my married name. I have been refused as I still have a South African passport in my other married name.
I was told to change my name in my SA passport to my married name.
How do I go about this?
I am resident in the UK
Thank you

Accomodation in London
Good Dear Sir/Madam

My name is Nomfazwe Nkobo mother of Tokelo Nkobo a (16years old). My son went for trial at Queens Park Rangers and he was successful and was offered a place. See attached letter.

I am humbly asking for assistance in term of my Son accommodation while he is there studying , we are unable to complete a study visa without accommodation. Kindly assist on how we can get a student Visa for him while we sorting out the accommodation for him.

If you can as well assist in referring to places that are near Newham College as he will be going to that college, we can book accommodation for the period of the school. The school is opening on the first week of September. We need to complete the Visa as soon as possible , for him to be able to enroll to the college.

Kindly direct me to a person who can as well assist me in this regards.

Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.

Passport Renewal
I applied for a passport renewal in November 2014 and up to now I have been told its being processed/investigated in Pretoria? I mean 3 years and now no one is responding to my emails and telephone messages. Anyone know what I should do? Or how I should proceed? I have written to the Consular General and again have had no answer even doubt if my letter got to him.
