OCI Registration Photocopies

Post by vkpaidisetty » Thu Jul 08, 2021 10:19 pm

Hi,

I am in the process of applying 3 OCI applications in few weeks time for my wife, my son and I.
As of 15 May 2021, HCI website indicates no need to carry photocopies.
Does this mean we don't need to carry any photocopies and doesn't require self attest photocopies?

For the employment letter, are the payslips should be sufficient?
Since my wife is in maternity, does she need employment letter too?

Thanks in Advance

Hi
It's better to carry self attested photocopies of all the documents you upload online. I had to submit photocopies along with application form at VFS.
Payslips are sufficient if they have all the information. I would suggest request an employment letter which states your designation, job profile etc just so to avoid any delays with processing.
In case of your Mrs being on maternity, you can provide the latest payslips and employment letter as well.

Thanks for the response.
I too think its better to carry the self attested copies.

Also regarding the documents, do they keep any originals?

The only Originals they take are your British Passport and Surrender certificate. But please carry all originals that you have uploaded. They are out of sync sometimes with their own rules.

Within a couple of days you will get back your original documents.

Oh thanks for your quick reply.
In case of a minor who is born in UK, then they only keep his British Passport then?

A small correction and important note!

If the minor had an Indian passport that is cancelled, you have to submit original: British Passport + Surrender Certificate.

This point came up because you are mentioning of Surrender certificate for minor in your latest post.

Once again, thanks for the quick response.
Our child doesn't have indian passport - so no surrender certificate.

hello,

Are there any restrictions on minor photos?
My child is one month old and since we take a picture from top leaves light shadow is inevitable.
It is very light when you look at it but when printed the application form it is noticeable.
We used same for the British passport and the passport got approved.
So, the question is will be the VFS team very strict for minor photographs?

Thanks

Hi

More than VFS, Indian govt is more fussy about photos/signature. There are websites where you can upload the picture and they will rectify the size and the shades you are referring to as per OCI requirement. Some are free and others are paid. It's best to pay few pounds and get it right (they give hard copy and soft copy too) than have issues later on. I would advice you search online and get the photo corrected as per the requirement.

Thanks

hi,

Is it necessary to include salary in Employment letter?
Also, I believe it is not necessary to submit pay slips right?

Thanks

Hi

I am not quite sure if it is required. It should definitely cover your role in organisation and preferably on company letter head. I have used a standard template as part of employment letter which covered annual income. I did not submit any payslips. Just employment letter stating your role, date of joining, place of work on letter head should suffice.

Thanks

So your employment letter has annual income, however this is not required right.

Mine had Date of Joining, Role, Annual Salary and Place of work printed on Official letter head. If your employer can add your annual income to it, why don't you get it? Or you are concerned about the confidentiality :) I think it should be ok to not have income mentioned. I think all they want to see is that you are not employed in areas for whom OCI is not permitted e.g. Diplomats, working in defence etc.
