I applied OCI in lieu of PIO for my daughters and received their OCI without OLD PIO card. On inquiry I got to know that they don't returned old PIO. I understand that Old PIO is not a valid document anymore but my questions are :-

1. CKGS OCI status workflow path shows PIO card return path too. Is this incorrect or they use to send old PIO card in past and recently change the process?.
2. Also, CKGS has charged us fees for two envelops from CKGS to us whereas I only received one envelop i.e. OCI card. My understanding was the other one if for old PIO.
3. Generally old document needs to be returned with cancel stamp the way old passport are returned. My old PIO cards have details of my travel that may be required for future reference.

Do anyone received OLD PIO card ?

I have applied for my son's OCI in the SFO embassy. It stuck in 'Under Process' for more than 40 days. I have an upcoming planned trip on 5/28. Is it a good idea to wait for the OCI or apply for visitor visa? Below is the status of the OCI.

The government site says document printing status - under process.
Does this mean the verification is done and just the printing is pending.

Hello,

I've applied for OCI at Mumbai FRRO, the file was acknowledged on the 5th of May.

For the last 7 weeks, it says "UNDER-PROCESS". Has anyone who has applied at Mumbai recently received their OCI card?

Any idea of the current processing time for Mumbai FRRO?

Thanks
Siddhsnt

CKGS says "the application for a minor has to be signed by both parents."

United States Citizen applying for OCI

What if there is only one parent to sign the application?

This forum helped me to estimate and understand how much time new OCI takes.

Very nice facility at Chicago.

March 8th 2019 : Application Submitted
April 16th I had the OCI in hand.

Around 38 days
