Hi everyone, I have my appointment for OCI very soon! I'm a little confused and would be grateful for all your help! :(

I completed the online form and attached documents. And have printed the registration form out, is this also the application form?

Just to also confirm a few things:

I do not recall it prompting me to pay for the fees online? Is this something that I would do when I go for my appointment, if so what is the updated fee? And will they also accept debit card payment?

I've read that I would need to print x2 registration forms? And x2 photos?

Do i need to sign and date the photocopies of my passport and supporting evidence document?

Apart from the registration form, appointment letter, supporting document copies and originals, x2 return envelopes, declaration form, anything else I should take to appointment?

Look forward to your response! Thanks!

If anyones OCI application says PROCESSED and still waiting for Dispatch status from Delhi and Arrival Status in your local VFS office...but not updated please contact local council and confirm your OCI arrived or not?

Since there is an issue with OCI Online status enquiry website...it's not showing the status correctly which is true as of today(20/03/2018) since 15/03/2108, please go to your local VFS office to submit your passports.

Please contact your local public response unit before you go to your local VFS office.

Hi humanityrultz,

I checked my status this morning and it still shows 'under-process' but the date/time on top of it is current.

Just wondering as to where did you get this news that 'OCI Online status enquiry website' is down?

Also if that's the case, mine and other pending cases may have been processed if the status is not updated since last week. :?

Did you try contacting VFS or HCI yourself as I think VFS does not entertain anyone with phone calls on status updates.

Thanks

I was saying about "PROCESSED" status only, if it still under-process I'm not sure. Please check with consulate if your application submitted more than 4 weeks.

My post is to forum about my experience.
"Website is playing up with other applicants as well" this words from response service unit. I'm not sure what level and how severe the issue, I don't work for Consulate.

Please use provided phone numbers or your local Consulate response unit number and then check with them.
Also take a print out if it "PROCESSED" status regardless of it updates about arrived to you VFS/Consulate or not.

I was clear in my post contact your local Consulate and provided you contact details of consulates not VFS. So not sure why you are asking this question.

Please read post carefully before asking any questions.

You've been really helpful. Really glad to read your response humanityrultz!!

Well you could have answered it in a better way but I guess it's just the way you are used to replying.

I did call them and they are not aware of any website issues so next time please double check before posting any false information and create hoax.

Thanks again.
