OCI Address & Occupation Change - Chicago
I am adult and have OCI Card. I moved and need to update address and change occupation that is listed. I am able to provide address change proof. It says on VFS Website "Copy of documents in support of the Change in the Occupation of the applicant. For example - if changed Occupation, then copies of documentary evidence are required."


1. What can be proof for occupation change?
2. Do I get a new OCI Card?
3. Do I need to send current OCI Card to VFS?
4. Do I really need to update address?
