Old OCI Return?
I am in the process of renewing my OCI due to new passport. My question is does the old or my current OCI need to be returned to either Coxs and Kings or the Indian Government? Thanks in advance.

NY CGI - New OCI Card Issued (Applied on 02/24/2020)
Hi all,

Thought I would update my case here. I had applied to the NY CGI for a new OCI card (Adult). My card got delayed due to the shelter in place rules in NY. Today I see that the card has been printed and is on its way to me. Looks like they have resumed their services. My timeline:

02/24/20 Application received at CKGS
02/25/20 Application verified and in transit to Consulate
02/26/20 Application under process at Consulate
02/26/20 Original US passport reviewed & mailed back to me in the prepaid envelope I provided
05/05/20 OCI document printed and received at NY CKGS
05/05/20 OCI document despatched to me via the prepaid envelope provided

FYI, since I live in LA and had chosen to have the OCI processed at NY CGI (as SF is slow and one can now choose to have an OCI processed outside one's jurisdiction), I had to provide 2 prepaid UPS envelopes (they don't accept USPS or FedEx). I received my US passport in the first one and will receive my OCI in this second one.

So it seems that CKGS and NY CGI are back to work - those of you waiting, should get some news soon too. For those that are applying, just make sure you include everything in the checklist (original and certified copies) - I have never had an issue with missing documents etc. with CKGS as I ensure that I include everything in the checklist.

OCI renewal at SFO
Your Application is ‘Under Process’ at the Consulate since 03/06/2020 .

I assume the consulate is not processing anything at this point because of Covid 19. Anyone else heard anything?

New OCI card for Adults

I am an US citizen and I am planning on applying for OCI for India from Atlanta Centre. Has anyone applied for it recently? I am little afraid to apply for it due to coronavirus. Your experiences or suggestions will be appreciated.
