Now they just need to confirm if existing OCI holders (while renewing their foreign passports), should they refresh their OCI?
Take a look at the MHA circular - http://www.indiacgny.org/pdf/MHA_Circular_U.pdfanonimouse wrote:I would also like to know if the OCI booklet needs to be refreshed as my passport is coming up for renewal very soon. I have read that people travelling with a new passport have had to carry their old passport + OCI booklet and encountered no problems.
However, I really hope they will simplify the process as it would be pretty stupid to carry three pieces of documents i.e. old passport with the U sticker, OCI booklet and the new passport!
I just did a travel. Went to the immigration official. All that the person did was scan the OCI card and stamped my British passport. The whole process was very smooth and not a single word uttered/asked.gbhsmp wrote:If anyone is going to recently travel to INDIA then they could ask the immigration officials during their stamping and get a clear information on what is being practiced.
