Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

Note for future applicants. You can ask VFS to use the "Normal" delivery option vis DX Secure which costs around £7.95. They will always offer the "Urgent" delivery option via DX Secure which I think costs around £15.

Re: Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI)

Hello Friends,

Quick question on surrender of passport. Do I have to surrender my "cancelled" Indian Passport along with the current valid passport? or is it just the current valid passport that has to be surrendered?

Thanks
