Re: OCI card send via courier - Is it Illegal?

Hi there, I'm going to India next week on 'Entry Visa'. I'm thinking of submitting OCI application at the local passport office there. Just want to know if my brother collects it for me when it's ready and sends it to me (to my European address) via courier, would I be breaking any law? Is it illeg...

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

Both Royal Mail Special delivery and Dx couriers are quite safe. The only difference is the cost. You can buy a special delivery envelope with a 500 gm stamp for 7 pounds while Vfs dx courier charge is 14.98. If you have to submit original docs then you need 2 envelopes so any cost get doubled. Bes...

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

Hi tier1check, VFS process is quite painful. I waited to hear from them (SMS/Email) if I had to go to VFS to give the passport for the U Sticker. However they didn’t send me anything so my wife went to give the passport with printout of the status page along with 3 (1 for each applicant) Royal mail...

Re: OCI query! Help please!

Last week I applied for OCI from VFS/Honslow and they raised a possibility that requirement for passport U sticker might be done away with in next couple of week (not sure though). I suggest you can apply for OCI from London and go on your visit. Even if HCI requires you to get passport sticker in c...

Without going into much detail, my wife, out of her naive stupidity, ripped my British Naturalisation Certificate. I have already had my British passport interview, so am assuming that my British passport is on its way. Next step is to renounce Indian citizenship. Does anyone know if I need the ori...

Hi prasad, could you please forward me the email which you got from HMRC ( atul_temp@forward.cat ) . I have ma...
