PIO has to convert to OCI before Jun 17th 2015
Dear friends,
     The Ministry of Home Affairs again surprised us by saying that PIO cards are no longer valid after June 17th 2015 when traveling to India. Here is the link For those of us who got PIOs until January 9th 2015, we still have to to take OCI. If we have journey to India before June 17th, we can still use PIO. But if anyone wants to go to India after June 17th, they have to have either a visa or OCI and PIO card is not valid. The only good thing is - for those who already have PIO, they can convert to OCI with a lesser fee($20) and it still takes 8 to 10 weeks of time, but I'm not fully sure about the reduced fee.
