OCI Check List

Post by rentmeda » Wed Nov 14, 2012 11:00 am

Hi All,

I plan to submit my OCI Application in person next week, as I am told it will be quicker then posting it. Just wanted to check the documents required when submitting in person:

Self:
1. Two sets of completed form Part A and Part B.
2. Copy of Surrender certificate.
3. Copy of Certificate of Naturalisation.
4. Copy of British Passport.

Spouse:
1. Two sets of completed form Part A and Part B.
2. Copy of Surrender certificate.
3. Copy of Certificate of Naturalisation.
4. Copy of British Passport.

Child:
1. Two sets of completed form Part A and Part B.
2. Copy of Surrender certificate.
3. Copy of cancelled Indian Passport.
4. Copy of Certificate of Naturalisation.
5. Copy of British Passport.
6. Copy of Full UK Birth Certificate.
7. Copy of Parents Marriage Certificate.

Want to confirm:
1. If I need any authorisation letter from my wife as I plan to go alone to submit the applications.
2. Do we need copies of expired/cancelled Indian passports for self + spouse.
3. Do we need to carry the Originals for all the above documents.

Thanks

1 - No
2 - No
3 - Yes

Also,
- Two copies of the application form are not required though it states so.
- Complete Part A individually and part B as common for all of you. So part A three copies and only 1 copy of part B
- Copy of Cancelled Indian passport is not required
- For Baby the full birth certificate and for establishing your relation with wife a copy of marriage certificate.
- All the above copies needs to be self attested by applicant except for baby where you attest the copies.

Sorry one more question. What happens to the second photograph, do we have to submit it or just one pasted on the application is enough.

MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE

Post by sonrak » Sat Dec 08, 2012 1:53 pm

I am applying for OCI for my 2 kids aged 8 and 4, my wife and myself. We ve all got our surrender certificates. Both my kids were born in the UK and their birth certificates show both parents name. Do I still need to send marriage certificate (have only got a court affidavit in front of a magistrate in India confirming our marriage ).

The marriage certificate is still required to prove that other adult applicant is your wife and hence you are eligible to apply together as family application without she being present there physically. If you do not want to take / have marriage certificate then she will need to be present there physically, as during application, an adult needs to be present physically unless it is family application.

Thanks for your reply. If we send the application by post, can we send one common part b or does my wife have to apply separately?

if you are sending your marriage certificate (thus making it family application) only single copy of the duly filled part B. if Wife's application is going separately then you need to have part B for her application too.

Trivial question - We need only one photocopy of the documents (passport/naturalizationcert etc) right?

Hi, My 5 months son is born in the UK and has a British passport. I have an Indian passport and Biometric card with ILR. My spouse has a British naturalisation certificate and Indian passport which has not yet been surrendered ( within 3 Months). The british passport has not yet arrived. Would I also need to submit a joint affadivit stating that my son did not acquire Indian Citizenship.
Many thanks in advance for your response.

Affidavit for minor child born outside India (for OCI)

Post by GreatMechEngr » Thu Jan 17, 2013 10:21 am

Sonakshi,

I think your spouse needs to get his British Passport first, then surrender his Indian Passport.

In the mean time, an affidavit to be made for your son to confirm that he has never acquired Indian Citizenship. I understand that this is an mandatory requirement. I was informed that : ''If an applicant never possessed an Indian passport (eg. a minor born outside India), he / she or the minor’s parent is required to submit an affidavit in a proforma acceptable to High Commission / Consulate.''

Then your spouse and son can apply for OCI together. Your son can't apply on his own for OCI until it can be proved that at least one of the parent is holding a Foreign Passport.

Regards,

HP
