Here in london they don't ask any Proof of address.
Just to summarize the OCI procedure for all.
Get 2 sets of copies of
1. Filled Application form
2. 51x51 photo pasted on the app form
3. Surrender certificate or (Notarized Affidavit+Police Complaint)
4. UK passport photo page only
5. UK Naturalisation Certificate
The signature and photo should not be copied but original!
Carry all your original UK passport,Naturalisation Certificate,Surrender certificate or Notarized Affidavit along with you. Just in case if they want to verify.
Photos of the size 51x51 can be obtained from any local photo studio for Â£10 or less. I got them in Ilford 6 photos for Â£7
Just go to the Indian high commission at London in the morning before 12PM and stand in the queue to the counter and ask for OCI token.
Then wait for your turn to be called. There are 2 counters inside to accept the OCI applications so it speeds up things. Submit the form and get the acknowledgement and verify the details on it.
Keep checking your status online and in 2 weeks you should be able to collect your OCI card/sticker.
Notarized affidavit: If your indian PP is lost or misplaced then you have to get a notarized affidavit from a notary. This service is not given by indian the high commission, so you have to get it done by a notary near to your area. Google for them. They usually charge from Â£80 to Â£130.
Note that a solictor is different from a notary!

Yes. 2 Copies.

If I know it correctly, I think there is a 3 month grace period for you to use your Indian passport after acquiring foreign nationality.

Also, can both of us apply together and if that is possible how do we go about doing that?
Do we just submit both of our applications together or is there a different procedure?
Help will be appreciated.
