Thanks vr but that didn't help....the family application is for 2 adults and 2 children but what I want to know is can I use the family application for just 2 children? Does the application process allow that? Welcome any guidance.

Cheers Shabster.

OCI Family application

Hi, I've checked this site for answers but couldn't find it so posting a new topic.

I wish to apply for OCI for my 2 children both under 11 and need to know whether i can apply as a family on the same form or do i need to make 2 separate applications.

Thanks.

Hi, I agree with mirzanaseer79 that it is safer to send one paid SDE per passport and that is what i did when 2 (mine and daughters) OCI were ready last week. But to my surprise both were received today in the same SDE and they returned the other SDE, so HCI is full of surprises. But play it safe an...

Hi, it is very unfortunate that they lost your sons OCI sticker but thankfully you dont have any immediate travel plans so just wait it out I think unless the gurus think otherwise?

Both mine arrived today in the post - took just 7 days to return.

Thanks.

Dear Chrams,

Please provide update, have you now received passport and OCI?

I posted 2 passports on Wednesday 4 December and hopefully from your experience I should get an idea of when to expect mine.

Thanks Shabster8

Hi Ayyubi72,

My application was approved and I have OCI - all this happenned in August. You have absolutely nothing to worry about, just send photo copies of everything, it will be fine. Hope this helps to reassure you.

Good luck.

Hi,

1. Yes you can apply at any mission, either post or in person.
2. In person is always quicker but I always use the post because of my location.
3. I don't know about this so will leave others to respond.

Good luck Pradan.
