OCI Card in India
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:


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.
