13 Dec Submitted to Fedex
Error found in documentation (Middle name missing. This was a software bug on CKGS' side which others have complained about on Yelp. There is no way you can fix this because the filled in form has the middle name but the software generated form does not. Lucky one of their staff understood and they fixed my form, the bug will be fixed some day. I had to pay USPS $8 for a 2 day trackable post for their error).
17 Dec Updated Docs received by CKGS
19 Dec Docs reached Consulate
30 Dec Consulate signed and stamped Surrender Certificate
03 Jan Surrender Certificate and Cancelled Passport received

Pretty good timing considering other posts I saw. What might have helped? Docs were well organized with cover letter. But it may just have been luck!

I applied for Indian Citizenship Renunciation after becoming a US Citizen.

I applied for Stand-alone Renunciation as SF consulate doesn't allow Renunciation + OCI service.

Here is my Timeline: I sent the application on 21st October 2019.

Please be patient if you're applying through SF Consulate, as it will take more than 30days, and they mention it is 30 business days, so you will have to subtract all the weekends, and any other holidays mentioned on CKGS website.

Dec 02, 2019 - Monday04:00 pm Renunciation Certificate ‘Received’ at the CKGS application centre and is at the ‘Sorting Facility’ where it is being processed for delivery.

Please continue tracking your application status online.
Dec 02, 2019 - Monday03:59 pmApplication 'Reviewed' by Consulate and ‘In Transit’ to CKGS Application Centre.

I recently became a US Citizen and applied for Renunciation at the SF consulate. It is a real slow process, compounded by the fact that this is one of two consulates where you can't apply for renunciation and the OCI card concurrently - so much bureaucracy!

Anyway, here is a my timeline:

Oct 03, 2019: Sent application form to CKGS SF via FedEx
Oct 04, 2019: Package received by CKGS, not verified
Oct 07, 2019: Application verified by CKGS
Oct 08, 2019: Application 'under process' at CKGS
Oct 09, 2019: Application 'in transit' and 'under process' at consulate
Nov 07, 2019: Application sent to CKGS by consulate and after sorting, handed over to FedEx
Nov 08, 2019: Package delivered to me

I can't believe it took the consulate almost a month for this renunciation. I am heading to India for a few weeks (have obtained the 1 year e-visa) and will apply for OCI after I return from India.

Hello,

can anyone share your experience on how long it has taken you to get your renunciation certificate back from the san francisco consulate? How long did it take your pp to go back from the embassy back to ckgs?

Thank you very much!

I am trying to get surrender certificate. I have lost both my expired and invalid Indian passport as well as my US naturalization certificate. I can get the police report for the lost passport. But is there anything else I can use in place of naturalization certificate. I do have copies of my lost Indian passport and valid and current US passport. I know I can apply for a replacement Naturalization Certificate. But that can take up to 6 months. I want to get the surrender certificate soon so that I can apply for tourist visa.

Please advise.

I surrendered my Indian passport and got the surrender certtificate last year. But now, I lost the surrender certificate and I want to apply for the OCI. What is the process for getting a duplicate copy of my surrender cert? Is it possible? Or do I need to spply and get a new one again (pay 175 dollars?). Any suggestions?

Thanks
Ram
