It's really frustrating and disappointing the way they are dealing with it. The process crossing a four month period. Please let me know when your application is approved, so at least I get idea how long the current process is taking.

This is very quick !
Exactly 3 weeks from date of acknowledgement to finishing processing.
Online status also shows the OCI number assigned.
Now just need to see how quick I receive it at London.

I got my originals back on Saturday 11th March, but online status still showing same as before 'no such record found'.
I have booked my tickets as well for last week of April.
I can't see, OCI processed by that time, planning to apply for 6 months tourist visa for my little one, as she is going to stay there till August.

Thanks,
SK
Hi SK,

that's a better idea.
India High commission customer server is also not helpful and are not giving a date.
They are asking to email to know the status and if we email then there is no update


Thanks,
Sathish
Hi Satish,

Have you received any decision?


Hi,

I have received decision on 3rd april as processed and receivedo iin edinburgh.
I have submitted the UK passport this Wednesday..

In general edinburgh high commission is very slow...
it takes 3 months at least

thanks
Sathish

The new OCIs have 5 blank pages rather than 1. I have no idea what these are for.

Interestingly their translation of Overseas Indian Citizen into Hindi has also changed from Videshi Bhartiya Nagrik to Pravasi Bhartiya Nagrik!

OCI Application is for 2 children (British citizens).
Father is British Citizen and Mother is Indian Citizen.

Query Recieved : 26-05-2017
They want surrender certificate for older son. He became british citizen via registration. Younger son was citizen by birth. For older son, we had submitted the Indian passport for surrender and it was stamped with big letters as cancelled and top corner of passport was cut and do not remember if I have received surrender certificate.

I do not have the original Indian passport and also do not have surrender certificate. They did not ask me this at the in-person submission appointment. Can I ask them to check if I have already a surrender certificate in their system and re-issue one again for me ?
Or what do I need to provide if I dont have original passport (have photocopy only) ?

Hi Everyone, I applied for my daughter's (NEW OCI) and husband (PIO TO OCI) at the same time.
My daughter's was processed, while my husband's still under process..
Is that worrying? As his application was PIO to OCI.
Also can anyone confirm if we have to submit the passport to get the OCI card? Or does it get delivered directly? I keep seeing it on everyone's timeline. I wasn't given this information during the application appointment.

I'd really appreciate some help. Thank you :)
