Hello Folks,

I applied OCI for My 3 month old infant and got the card in 4 weeks. As most of you have posted here it's just taking a month to receive OCI card Its 100% true.

Package mailed to CKGS July 23 2019
Passport returned July 25 2019
Acknowledgment received from government website 16 August 2019
OCI Card received 22 August 2019

Many of you expect that it's very hard to get the OCI card sooner But I wanted to share my experience and probably that's the reason why process was quicker in my case. I did my homework and made sure each detail is properly updated, I got the proof letters notarized because i didn't had address proof on my spouse's name, This was not asked at all in documentation request. I made sure Each document is aligned in the order requested by CKGS.

Please let me know if anyone needs help.

Hi ,

I have also applied OCI for minor at Chicago. I can see the status in online as Under processing since July 24th. However, there has not been any status change since then. Also, I am confused as all say received passport after some days. I haven't received passport back, Any idea if the location matters ?

Ideally passport must be returned in not more than a week. In your case better call the CKGS help line and find out whats going on.

Hi, please guide me on applying OCI for my baby born in US and my husband is on work visa here. please update on which documents are to be notarized? Do we need to send copy of marriage certificate of parents and copy of last 3 pages of minor's US passport. Does parental authorization form needs to be notarized too. Do we need to send hard copy of child's photo? How many envelops to be sent with the application?

don't forget to send a copy of Apostilled birth certificate, they would not process oci without it.
