The Background behind the OCI Visa for NRIs

The OCI Visa was introduced to Non resident Indians in August 2005 and replaced the PIO Card that was swiftly made defunct.

The online portal developed jointly by VFS Global, Indian Visa, OCI, Passport and Consular services centre and the Indian Embassy and 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.
