Many thanks! Did you have to provide your own birth cert for your wife's application? My husband has his Indian passport still - will that not be sufficient?
In our case they took originals (and copies) of the following:
- My Wifes Birth Certificate
- Our Marriage Certificate
- A letter from myself stating I authorised my Wife to apply for an OCI card on the basis that I am her spouse
And copies of the following:
- Her Passport
- My Passport
- My OCI card
- Letter from her employer confirming her employment
However, I would strongly advise you to take everything you have that may be pertinent. This is the Indian Government and their agent you are dealing with, nothing appears to be set in stone.
Moreover, I'd also advise having copies of all these documents aswell. It will be far cheaper and less stressful copying them at home, then doing it there. On one occasion their machine wasn't working so people had to go to the shop down the road. And even if it is working, it isn't cheap.
