I like your OCI service. BUT I can NOT visit you in Paddington. Can Reload still help me?

Yes. We have launched a new online OCI help service and we encourage you to use it if you are unable to visit our store in Paddington, London.

Our new online OCI help service only takes 5-10 minutes to complete and then a member of our team will be in touch to personally ask you to email us your documents based on your OCI application requirements.

Once we receive all the information, we will take care of the whole process, including uploading all of your documents in the correct format and best of all is that our Guarantee applies to both instore OCI help AND our new online OCI help service.

OCI photo specification included in our package

Our staff understand the OCI requirements for your OCI photo and we will follow the exact standards. Watch the video on the OCI Indian Passport photo we will provide for your OCI application when you visit Reload Internet in Paddington.

You will require specialist OCI passport photos (hard copies and digitised) that meet the standards set by them – and these are included in the Premier OCI application for £45 and our guarantee extends to the photos we include in the Premier OCI package.


OCI Photo and signature resize problems 

If you are having OCI photo and signature resize problems please follow this link. We can assist you with resizing your OCI photo and signature or thumbprint without the need for you to visit us in Paddington. We can do it all by simply emailing us your photo and signature and we will resize it for you within 1 working day (but most likely same day).

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. 


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. Our guarantee ensure that we will redo the whole application for you without charge should you be declined for any reason and we are always willing 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. 


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.


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.


General Oci information:

  • Applicants should apply in person with a prior appointment – do not just turn up to the Indian embassy or VFS Global
  • No OCI applications will be accepted by post anymore.
  • Some of the Points that the Staff at Reload Internet will ensure are completed, so that your application passes first time around will be ensuring that your OCI forms are filled in completely online and we will ensure that both parts A and B are completed with assistance from us.
  • We will ensure that your OCI Application has Part A of the OCI form completed by selecting either individual applicant or family group and the rest of the details will also be filled up.

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. This is all included in our OCI application help package, but our OCI help will ensure that you have:

  • Parental authorisation forms in place
  • 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.
