OCI Card / OCI visa and how to get one

This is the full technical definition of the OCI visa and Reload OCI can obtain the OCI visa for you by taking care of all the form filling for you. The OCI card was introduced by the amendment of the Indian citizenship act 1955, and was introduced in August 2005. It has been a great success with many applications being approved, however, in spite of the technology and the modern age, filling in the online forms has proven for some to be a daunting experience. The online portal developed jointly by VFS Global, Indian Visa, OCI, Passport and Consular services centre and the Indian Embassy is a powerful web resource that can process new OCI applications, and even issue and reissue duplicate OCI documents. The OCI online web portal can even change personal particulars, Nationality, name, change of address/ occupation and loss and even damage of the OCI registration certificate/visa. However, for some applicants the process has proven a little frustrating and Reload Internet is able to help. 

How long will the OCI application take to complete following our OCI help?

That’s a great question. Once the application is submitted to VFS Global centre, the OCI visa will be issued in approximately 6 to 8 weeks from the High Commission of India. Should you transfer your OCI from an old passport to your new passport this should be completed within 10-12 days and if you Transfer help with your OCI to your new Passport, please select the Premier Package or Package 2 above..

I have travel plans to India – Can I still apply for an OCI? Is there a Fast Track OCI service?

In short VFS and the Indian High Commission do not suggest that you make travel arrangements until you have received your OCI Visa. However, what we normally advise customers is to begin the application for an OCI Card ASAP – and should it not arrive in time, then we can always proceed forward with applying for an Indian Tourist Visa and this can usually be delivered to you within 5 days.

When applying for an OCI, the VFS will usually not hold your Passport for a period longer than 2 weeks.

if your OCI card does not arrive in time then we will apply for a indian tourist. Here is a link to the tourist visa india service from Reload and this is what we would do for you should your OCI application not arrive in time.

How long will VFS hold my passport for when applying for an OCI Card?

When applying for your OCI card or OCI visa, VFS will hold your passport for a period of upto 2 weeks. The whole OCI application will take longer, but you will be bale to collect your passport from them after two weeks. This is a new rule and they used to just accept photocopies of your passport but the Indian High Commission changed this rule in mid 2018.

Can I apply for my Pan Card at the same time as my OCI Card?

It makes sense to get your PAN card completed at the same time as your OCI application as this is a very important document for a NRI.

We can fill in your PAN card application forms at the same time as your OCI application forms when you arrive in Reload – and if you would like this to be done alongside your OCI application, simply make a Premier OCI booking above and reply to the email we send you, letting us know that you would like this.
