Re: oci passport send help

I had 2 applications, 1 for me, 1 for my son.

I sent both passports to the HCI in 1 envelope and also sent 1 Special Delivery envelope. They posted both passports and the 2 OCI books back to me in the 1 envelope

Are there any updates regarding your approval? I applied on 01-Apr by post. Still showing as 'Under process'

Thanks in advance.
You should email the OCI team in London, there may be a problem with your photos/paperwork.

They will not contact you, it is down to you to email them

Help - no birth certificate

My father wants to apply for OCI/PIO He was born in India and came to the UK in 1959, travelling on his Indian passport. When he took British citizenship, the home office never returned his Indian passport to him. This means he cannot apply for a surrender certificate. Problem is he does not have hi...

OCI collection by post

I have applied for OCI for myself and my son.

For collection by post, do I have to send 2 x Special Delivery envelopes or will they send both passports back to me in the same envelope?

Re: Indian Tourist Visa Timeline for In-Person at London

You don't need to book an appointment

Once you have filled in the form online, print it off, get the 2"x2" photos

Go to VFS Global in Hayes

In my experience, people with appointments are seen no sooner than people that just turn up on the day

You should get the passport back within 5 working days

OCI card child to adult

Was just wondering what the cost and procedure is for changing a childs OCI card to an adult card

Obviously the card has a photo in it and the appearance of a child will change as they grow and we all know what immigration officers in India are like

What does one have to do when this arises?
