Is Reload Internet Affiliated with the Indian Embassy or VFS Global in Paddington?

Reload Internet is NOT affiliated with the Indian Embassy or VFS Global in Paddington. We provide consultancy services and OCI application help for the OCI and indian form filling process and we are very good at what we do. The OCI Visa 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.

In case of issuance, the 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.

Reload Internet is more than just a Indian Passport photo processing center in Paddington that can click and process Indian Passport photos in store while you wait – Reload also understands and can assist overseas citizens of India with their OCI applications on the same day that they will be submitting to the VFS Global Paddington, Indian Visa, OCI, Passport and Consular services centre (as long as you have an appointment with the VFS Global Paddington / Indian Embassy)


Children OCI Application – 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.

How long will the OCI application take to complete?

That’s a great question. Once the application is submitted to VFS Global Paddington, Indian Visa, OCI, Passport and Consular services centre and for it to be issued it takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks.

We have sadly seen it take longer – and sometimes, much sooner.
