Hi,

I was wondering if there was dedicated lanes at immigration for OCIs at major airports like Delhi and Mumbai?

Also what should I do if the check-in agent at the departure airport isn't satisfied that the OCI card will serve as a visa because I have the new OCI booklet with no visa stamped onto my passport?

Hi all,

I am heading to India (Delhi) for a couple of months and thought about getting my OCI card there (I am currently in the process of renunciation at the SF mission and they don't allow applying for OCI and renouncing at the same time - for some weird reason). I emailed FRRO Delhi to ask about documents etc, but they told me that it is better to apply in the US as they only accept OCI applications from applicants that have resided more than 80% of the time in India. Any one here has obtained their OCI card while on vacation in India? Here is the full email from them:

QUOTE
-----------

Foreign national is authorized to apply for OCI card at place where he/she is residing ordinarily (means 80% of the year). You are advised to apply to Embassy of India abroad where you are residing.

Regards,
Team support
For FRRO, Delhi

Hi, Has anyone travelled to India recently with a new passport but an old OCI card for their child? When I visited India last in 2017, the immigration officer said we don't need to renew the OCI card but the Toronto Counsel General office says we need to? Any experiences? Thanks.
