OCI renewal for new British Passport

Post by ric1982 » Mon Oct 02, 2017 7:31 am

Hi,

I am planning to apply for OCI renewal for my 6 year old who already has OCI. She just got her British Passport renewed recently. So I understand we need to apply for another OCI stamp to go with her new passport. We are planning to travel to India in December. Is there enough time for us to apply? (The application will be form Birmingham UK).

What documents do we need for the renewal of the OCI?

Any input in this is much appreciated.

Thanks,

***Important***

OCI Travel Advisory – Re-issue of OCI Card (On getting a New Passport)

Re-issuance of OCI is mandatory every time passport is renewed up to the age of 20 years, and again after attaining the age of 50 years in view of frequent biological change in facial features in these age group.
