Re: Lifelong validity endorsement

Ok thanks. However, due to my previous experiences with disgruntled officials who take out their frustrations by nit-picking, I am unwilling to put my faith in this vague clause which does not state 'life-long validity' and the word 'visa' implies that another piece of information is still required,...

Re: Lifelong validity endorsement

@ban.s - I cannot find any reference or a sentence that describes the words "Visa" or "Life-long validity". Perhaps, your OCI booklet is different to mine?

Re: NO U visa for OCI anymore

The circular does not clearly state what happens in case of a renewal, as the old (expired) passport number is still printed in the OCI booklet. It takes just one official to dismiss any instructions and create another rule on the spot, based on inaccuracies or a power-trip.

Re: NO U visa for OCI anymore

I would also like to know if the OCI booklet needs to be refreshed as my passport is coming up for renewal very soon. I have read that people travelling with a new passport have had to carry their old passport + OCI booklet and encountered no problems. However, I really hope they will simplify the p...

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

Hi Sajiv Thanks for your post. When were your documents processed and ready to collect (mine was 13 Dec)? Does your reply envelope tracking also say "Please Come Back Later"? I wish the HCI would add the collections procedure to their online processing data than for us to pay Royal Mail to do the s...

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

I got both passports back today, relieved and happy; it took 3 days turn-around. Thanks for your help. Use this to track your delivery, instead of the main page on RM site. This delivers more accurate information and shows you the details of where the package is in the system. http://www.royalmail.c...

Re: OCI Postal Application processing step

You don't need to do anything at present, just sit and wait. The next expected status will be that the documents have been printed, dispatched and returned. At that point you can send your passport to the embassy and have it stamped. I applied in Dec '13 and had the afore-mentioned process completed...

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

...It says that the OCI is available for collection for 42 days after the date of acknowledgement - really don't know what that means or how they enforce it? I cannot take a chance to send it through the post as I am travelling in a weeks time and then back for a few days, then back out again - so ...

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

unfortunately you don't have any other option but to receive by post. though loss of documents in post is not rare but royal mail is quite efficient and reliable. don't worry. Thanks. Yes I agree and it seems that the options change just like the weather and hoping that they might change it back so...

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

I got my 'Documents Received' status on 7th Jan 2014 and was just about to go down there today and for some reason decided to check the timings, which brought me here. Also, my brother went down to pick his up last week who has the same status as mine was turned away and told that the submitting/col...
