Re: Emergency situation-British PP holder

Agree with the above suggestion. OCI holders can get a regular e-Visa and travel in case the original OCI booklet or the passport on which it was issued is not available for travel.

Re: Travelling to India

Yes, you can apply for eVisa without surrendering your Indian passport. It is just that VFS will not issue you a normal visa, including OCI, without surrender certificate. The eVisa is not processed by VFS but my MOEA in India. I'd advise you still submit your Indian passport for cancellation and ca...
