I had the same query last week. If it is Ok for you to park slightly earlier say 200yards you can park on the street. The building Vista Centre also has the parking with payment, however I didn't park, so not sure if it becomes full soon. Better call VFS & ask.

Susheel,

I have visited the VFS centre in Hounslow twice and parked on Beaver's lane. You can also opt to use the paid parking inside The Vista Centre parking but when I tried it was far down behind the building, so I came out and parked on Beaver's lane which is a residential area without any parking restrictions.

You could also try on Chinchilla Drive if you find a spot there. Both Beavers Lane and Chinchilla Drive are a couple of minutes walk and you can save a few quids. :)

Also, if you are looking for detailed information about the Indian passport surrender process, please do check out this guide which I wrote based on my experience with obtaining surrender certificate in Aug this year.

Can someone who has recently applied please clarify the process?

Do we need to fill an online application for passport surrender along with appointment?

http://passportindia.gov.in/AppOnlinePr ... procFormSc


or do we need take application form and declaration on VFS website with an appointment?
@ram4uintot

I applied and obtained my surrender certificate a month back.
You need to book a prior appointment and take the application form along with supporting documents to VFS and submit your application in person.

You can check the in-depth guide here: weblink removed by moderator

Hi guys
i got few questions if anyone can answer?
1) What should be OCI Registration Number when getting appointment for Surrender of Passport
2) while scheduling an appointment via https://www.vfsvisaservice.com/IHC-UK-A ... eUVLcp3A4= it doesn't matter what service you choose, as Form seems to be same?
3) Glasgow seems to available option as VAC. Does it mean both surrender and OCI application can be done in Glasgow? I am only aware of VFS in Glasgow, otherwise Indian Consulate is only in Edinburgh? It means VFS can handle both?

Thanks

In place of OCI registration number, you need to put your Passport number. The India Passport number.

Hi Board Members,

So I received my British Citizenship today and now have to start the process of OCI card.

Can someone pls share the step by step process thread or else explain here? I bet others have asked the very same questions. The details on VFS site is in parts and so I want to confirm from experienced folks.

I have already taken the appointment to surrended indian passport. But i have no idea of what all documents i will need to take and if I will need to fill an application form, etc etc etc?

Any guidance will be really helpful.

Best,
Ankit

First you will need to do Surrender of India Citizenship process and once you get that certificate, then you can do OCI. Just 3 comments above your post, all documents required for Surrender procedure are mentioned. All the Best.
