OCI Application from India

Post by KPSP » Mon Jun 18, 2018 11:25 am

Hi All,

Can we apply for OCI for our new born while they are on eVISA?
If so, can we please let me know the application process.

Thanks

Yes you can though provide sufficient time for checks to be conducted, although it could be much faster, you still need to make an online application, and contact nearest FRRO.

Don't misconstrue my views for professional immigration advice, just trying to give back to a community that helped me through my journey.

How many days are you planning to stay in india on eVisa ? If time is not any consideration, apply from India.

Thanks for the reply guys!

I believe we can stay on eVISA for 60days and that would be sufficient to get the OCI done.

With respect to this -

1. May I know how many times do we require to visit the FRRO (as we have to visit VFS twice here in UK)
2. Is one of the parent mandatory for submitting OCi application for minors or can we authorize any of our family members in India to apply on our behalf?

Thanks

Parents are necessary to sign the application. I belive that child will not be required to visit FRRO Office in person. Be prepared for small small things like Apostilled Birth certificate or Address proof in india like Aadhaar Card.
If parents are in UK, so why not do it here only !!!

If parents are in UK, how did child reach India? Surely one of the parent will visit India with the child. That time one can submit the application. Online Application is there with FRRO and I think 2 visits will be required as per experience of other applicants.
