I am planning to apply OCI card for new born less than 3 months. Do i need to send child's original US passport for OCI processing ?

How long it takes to return the original passport ? My child and my wife planning for a vacation to India in november 2019 end.

Original passport needs to be sent to them. They would return it in 1 week.
I had applied in Chicago last month for newborn and had the OCI delivered in 35 calendar days.
So if you act fast you might get it by Nov end.

Hello,

I am interested in knowing which documents you sent notarized? Did you get the Birth Certificate apostilled? Can you let me know please? I am so confused by the instructions online and don't have a lot of time to do research since we have plans to travel in early Dec.

Thank you.

I applied for OCI renewal and it didn't ask for original passport. Please check the documentation to see if its really required to send passport for new OCI. On mine they requested an affivadit to say I have originals of everything. So I didn't send any original in first request. The process says they will request for previous OCI later so we can send it to them.

YES, you need to send ORIGINAL passport they would return it to you in less than a week.

It is very IMPORTANT to get the BIRTH CERTIFICATE "APOSTILLED" meaning you need to get a certificate from state repsentative, go to VITAL Statistics dept in your city they will give you more info or just google it. - "Apostile - CITY NAME "
