Where do I get my OCI Passport photo or OCI Visa Photo

We can take these separately or together with your OCI application. Our staff understand the requirements and please see this OCI video showing how we make passport photos below:

What are the OCI Photo specifications?

The Indian Embassy and VFS Global have very strict definitions on the OCI visa application from Visa Passport Photos and the Indian Embassy will not accept Photos taken from a UK passport Kiosk booth. You will require specialist OCI passport photos (hard copies and digitised) that meet the standards set by them – and we are equipped to provide these for you instore.

OCI Passport photos specifications include the background colour, size of Indian passport photo, and EVEN the angle of the face as you look at the camera. A kiosk can not help with this, and we have seen many OCI applicants fail as a result of errors in applications or non-qualifying passport photos. We have attached an image below and not many Passport Photo studios in London have the specialist equipment required to get an Indian Passport Photo approved.

What other Services does Reload Internet offer?

We offer pan card help and Indian tourist visa and now we are soon introducing online OCI help so you will not need to come instore.

What is an OCI Card or OCI Visa?

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. We have also compiled an OCI document guide in case you are searching the web for OCI document requirements


Is Reload Internet OCI Help Affiliated with the Indian Embassy or VFS Global?

Reload Internet is NOT affiliated with the Indian Embassy or VFS Global. We provide consultancy services and OCI application form filling help for the OCI and Indian form filling process. We will scan in all of the documents you require and also digitise photos. We however can not offer refunds as we are service based. We are always happy to make right anything that needs doing. We can not be held responsible for the distance travelled or travel expenses. By using our service, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Reload Internet and its staff and no warranties are given. 


Minor Applicants for OCI Applications – Important Notes

If your children are applying and are a person who has not reached the legal age i.e. 18 years old, then this is what will be required, and, we will be happy to overlook your application and assist you where necessary:

  • Parental authorisation forms
  • Copies of the Parents UK / Foreign passport or OCI cards.
  • A Copy of the information page of the Parents will also be required – for clarity this is the page in the passport where the passport photo and details (name etc) are clearly shown in the passport.
  • If parents have OCI cards, then copies of both information pages will be required on the OCI card.

People over the age of twenty years old are required to apply for the OCI again every time a new passport is issued.


The OCI Baby photo / thumb impression. Do I have to bring my minor applicant in store?

No you do not. If you bring your baby’s passport image and thumb impression on your mobile phone by taking a photo of it, then we can do the rest instore. Or you can take the Complete package, and we will take the minors thumb impression in ink instore and digitise it as well.


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. Should you transfer your OCI from an old passport to your new passport this should be completed within 10-12 days and if you require this service, please select OCI help package 1.
