Re: Indian passport renewal in London, UK

From VFS FAQ Can UK address be reflected in Indian passport? Usually an UK address is not permitted on the Indian passport. However, in exceptional circumstances only when the applicant proves that he/she does not have any permanent address in India and additionally, he/she has Indefinite Leave to R...

Re: OCI card holders - Study in India at IIT/NIT

I didnt understand one thing. Foreign students do study in IIT. Who is OCI card holder - a Foreign citizen only. OCI from UK is a British Citizen. If British citizen can study in IIT, why cant an OCI card holder who possess British Passport study in IIT ??

If VFS accepts it, then you got a chance. As long as you have Birth certificate with details of both parents and prrof of india origin of Parents / parent - one is eligible for OCI card.

Re: Surrendring Indian passport

Hi all, Can someone confirm whether the Original Naturalisation Certificate is needed on the day of application? If not - I can apply for UK passport straightaway. If required, I will have to surrender passport first and then apply for UK passport. Any knowledgeable input, especially based on perso...

Re: Is Surrender Certificate Mandatory of India E-Visa

E-Visa van be recieved without Surrender Certificate.
Passport can be surrendered in india as well as UK after returning.

Once you apply for OCI card, Surrender certificate is a must.

Re: Travelling back to UK on Indian passport with British citizenship

The story is not clear. You and child went to India on expired UK visa of son. As long as your son has valid indian passport, UK authorities and Indian authorities will let you board the flight from UK to India and let him enter India.
Where is son now? India?

Re: Travel to India on Indian passport after British citizenship

3 month Grace Period rules are universal for all the countries, not only British Passport holders. In some countries, Indians who renounce their citizenship spend a lot of time before getting new passport of foreign country. For such people, 3 month grace period is handy. Once you get Foreign passpo...

Re: 2x2 photographs

How have members on this forum gone about getting a 2in x 2in pictures done for the purpose of surrendering Indian passport (and I'm assuming for OCI as well)? Traditional 'passport size' in the UK is different, so I'm wondering what is a convenient way of getting a 2in x 2in size done. Thank you f...

Re: Travel to India on Indian passport after British citizenship

If you have not recieved British Passport yet, you can avail Grace period of 3 months. If you have British Passport and still using Indian Passport, this will amount to Fine / penalties and also stopped from boarding the flight. Best advice is to get eVisa once you get British Passport or continue w...

Re: OCI Application from India

If parents are in UK, how did child reach India? Surely one of the parent will visit India with the child. That time one can submit the application. Online Application is there with FRRO and I think 2 visits will be required as per experience of other applicants.

Re: OCI Application from India

Thanks for the reply guys! I believe we can stay on eVISA for 60days and that would be sufficient to get the OCI done. With respect to this - 1. May I know how many times do we require to visit the FRRO (as we have to visit VFS twice here in UK) 2. Is one of the parent mandatory for submitting OCi ...
