Jan 18: OCI renewal due to change in passport received by VFS. They put the application on hold and asked us to send the original OCI card. We did not send original passport and sent affidavit in lieu of originals. They also asked us to upload the OCI card in the Govt of India website. It was so dificiult to locate the category under which OCI card has to be uploaded. After going through all of them, I figured out that OCI card is uploaded under Indian Visa where there is a footnote that says for OCI Misc services, OCI card can be uploaded here.

Jan 20: Uploaded OCI, printed email, printed updated application form that shows OCI card uploaded, original OCI card sent by FedEx and delivered on Jan 21. There was no status update for 6 days.

Jan 25-28: Reached out by phone, email, Twitter and all possible way. They responded to the DMs and asked our phone number and one nice guy called us and tracked the FedEx package. The second package never got merged with the first one (I guess). But that person processed it immediately.

Jan 29: Sent to Consulate.

Feb 1: Status changed to Approved in the Govt of India website. Dispatched from MEA same day. By 6pm, we got a text saying that OCI reached VFS.

Feb 2: OCI dispatched.

Feb 3: New OCI and old OCI (cancelled) received.
