Hi all,

For OCI application, do we need a physical print photo, or a digital photo would suffice?

Thanks,
K.
You will need 2 printed copies as well at the time of submission at VFS. Printed Photos should be the same as the digital copy uploaded online. Else application won't be accepted.

When booking an appointment for OCI which passport number to use - Indian passport or British passport ?
I booked with British passport and my appointment went fine. As per my understanding, you book with a current valid passport as Indian pspt is cancelled.

Are you EU or NON-EU national?

If you are NON-EU, are you submitting your P60s and Payslips for the last 10 years?
