possible problems with travel to india on PIO
My daughter has US passport and PIO card. We already applied for OCI in lieu of PIO. But we are travelling to India before OCI card arrives. I see from houston site that we can travel on PIO as long as OCI application is submitted. Did anyone face issues in India with PIO? what is the valid form of application confirmation from CKGS?

Interim travel to India until the issue of OCI card to existing valid PIO cardholders:

            Until applicants are in receipt of an OCI card issued in lieu of PIO card, they could travel to India with their valid foreign passport, valid PIO card and CKGS receipt as proof of having applied for an OCI Registration document in lieu of PIO card.
