Transferring a domain to OVH

In which case, contact OVH, it should have completed a long time ago. I did have issues with some domains not appearing but others working fine. Contact them by e-mail now, and phone them tomorrow morning. Thats your best bet.

The whois information was updated 9 March.

Yeah, it can take up to 7 days for a transfer to start, depending on the registrar at the other end. All of my .com's took a week to start the transfer. Its a security procedure put in place to stop un-authorised transfers. You'll probably find the inbox you associate with the domain will receive an e-mail with a link to cancel the transfer, or ignore it to allow it to continue. If after a week you haven't seen it transfer in, contact OVH about it.

I have not had that email.

I just checked, I have one that reads as follows:
Dear Customer,

We have received your request for the transfer of domain: /hidden/

The transfer of .uk domains must be initialized by your current registrar,
you must then send your request by indicating your identifier ("TAG"),
which is 'OVH-FR'.

As soon as the transfer begins, we will send you an email with the link
allowing you to define contacts for the domain.

Do not hesitate to consult our guide concerning transfers of .uk domains:
which hints about the email you refer to but I never received the second email.

Did you click the link in an e-mail sent to you to have it added to your account? You have to do this first. If you have already done it, it can take a few hours to appear. If its not there after 24 hours, contact support by phone (quickest method) and have them take a look.

Looking at the invoice in the manager I get:
