OCI Card Renewal timeline CHICAGO via VFS
Here is my timeline for OCI Card renewal via VFS at CHICAGO

23 DEC 2020 - Application filled out online and paid for service including VFS roundtrip courier service.

29 DEC 2020 - Could not get Courier shipping labels from VFS after many days of waiting, clearing cache, trying different browsers. Decided to send the package (including return shipping label at my cost to VFS Office in Chicago.

06 JAN 2021 - Received acknowledgment from VFS that application has been sent to Consulate for decision making

12 JAN 2021 - Received SMS stating that OCI is ready for pickup or shipping

14 JAN 2021 - Received SMS stating that OCI has been dispatched by VFS

15 JAN 2021 - Received OCI Card in hand via my own return shipping label that I sent

Very fast service indeed. Only issue was with VFS courier service that never worked for me. I plan to apply for refund of this service ($30). I don't expect to get this refund. Overall, the speed is much improved from previous renewals.
