How long does it take to get an OCI Renewal / Transfer your OCI / Change of particulars – Time scales before you can travel?

From start to finish, we will aim to get your paperwork and OCI application formalities completed very quickly.

The time scales for an OCI Renewal / Transfer your OCI / Change of particulars depends on your circumstances. If your situation is that you have got a new passport and need to update your passport number ONLY and there are NO changes to any details of your OCI including:

  • No change to your name on OCI
  • No change to your Marital Status
  • No change to any other personal particulars apart from passport number, then
  • You will not be required to visit VFS and we can complete everything for you in store and no fee is due to Indian High Commission for your renewal.

In this case we will provide you proof of upload via screen shots, and will attach a Letter from the High Commission to allow you immediate travel rights.

As per Indian High Commission Rules, NO new OCI will be issued to you and no print out of the application will be required as this will be digitally uploaded to the Indian High Commission.

You will USE the same OCI card you have to travel with your new Passport as you have completed the DIGITAL application and we will provide a letter from the high commission to state that ALL digital formalities have been completed by you.

NON COMPLIANCE AND NON FILING OF THE DIGITAL APPLICATION may result in you not being able to travel and we will complete everything for you instore.

We will take care of all formalities and even take your photo in store.

Turnaround time will be IMMEDIATE which means that you can book your tickets and fly after your appointment at Reload if we confirm this.

If you need to:

– Change name on OCI
– Date of birth on OCI
– Changing Nationality on OCI
– Changing Marital Status
– Any other change in personal particulars (with or without passport)
– IF YOU HAVE LOST or DAMAGED OCI BOOKLET and you may wish to change some details and we will do this as part of the service, so change of details and lost oci replacement
– If you have turned 20 years of age (or when a new passport is issued after completing 20 years of age). So as an example, if you were 12 years old when you first got your OCI, and your passport expires at 22. At 22 you apply for a new passport, get one, then at that time you will need to renew your OCI, not when you turned 20.

AFTER WE COMPLETE YOUR APPLICATION you will have to visit VFS, and there will be a fee due to VFS. WE WILL BOOK YOU IN TO YOUR NEAREST VFS CENTER as part of our service.

Turnaround time 4-6 weeks at VFS before you receive your new OCI booklet. Do not book an airline ticket until you receive your OCI.

Reload OCI clients have reported that they have obtained their OCI in 4 – 5 weeks after submission, as we complete your OCI application and provide all of the documents required in a perfect format. As we have dealt with many thousands of OCI applications, our team has built the experience necessary to operate an OCI help service, like Reload.
