OCI Application Query

Post by rajee120 » Mon Mar 21, 2016 7:44 am

Hello All,

I am applying OCI for me, my wife and 2 children.

I have some questions on documentation required and uploading on website.

1) Document/Image upload: Do we have upload original documents ? or do we need to upload self-attested copies of original documents?

2) Also I see that there are many options to select while uploading documents? so can we club 2-3 documents in 1 pdf file and upload them?

4) Are below documents sufficient ?

For me & my wife
- Indian Passport Surrender Certificate
- Naturalisation certificate
- British Passport
- Cancelled Indian Passport

For minor applicants:
- Indian Passport Surrender Certificate (if present (??) My daughter is British Citizen from Birth)
- Child Full Birth Certificate
- Naturalisation certificate (if present (??) My daughter is British Citizen from Birth)
- Cancelled Indian Passport
- Parents Marriage certificate
- British Passport
- Parents British Passport
- Parents Indian Passport surrender certificate

1. Originals, though I don't think it'll be a problem if someone uploads "self-attested" copies.
2. Yes, you can.
Life isn't fair, but you can be!
