Hi everyone. I want to apply for OCI and wanted to know what documents I need. I was born in the UK, am an adult and have British passport. I am currently unemployed but was employed previously I have old payslips and P45. My parents were born in India and now live in the UK and have British passports. They still have their old Indian expired passports they have kept as well as their active UK passports. My dad has OCI. Which documents do I need for the application? And if I will be using parents documents do I take the originals as well as photocopies to VFS ? Do they check and give originals back and keep just the photocopies? How many copies should I take? Any advice would be appreciated.
As You are Born In UK:-
Your Original British Passport & Two hard photocopies “ Orignal Passport would be seen and returned”
Your Original Birth Certificate along with two photocopies “Orignal would be Kept”.
Your Parents Original Marriage Certificate two photocopies original would be kept.
Your Parents original Surrender Certificate of Indian Passport & two photocopies Original would be seen and returned.
Original Cancelled Indian Passports of parents if avalaible, two photocopies, original would be seen and returned
Original Current British Passport of parents Two photocopies Original would be seen and returned.
Original OCI of Parents & Take two photocopies.
Letter from employer or proof of Income if self employed” i do not think this is mandatory “
Your UK Driving Licence as Proof of UK Address again only photocopy is required.
Take all originals with you with two photocopies of each document.
Though they only need documents of One parent Either Mother or Father, I will advise you to take both.
Only original they will keep is your parents marriage certificate and Your UK birth Certificate.
And Do not forget to Scan and Upload all these documents online as decision is made from India “New Delhi”. Take a photo 2inch x 2inch as Indian Visa / OCI standard pic taken by professional studio and upload the same picture in online too.
Good Luck with your Application.
