What is the process of renewal of my OCI when I get a new passport?


We will complete a Digital transfer / renewal OCI application for you, if you:

  • Address change can be updated at the same time by us for you.
  • Profession change can be updated at the same time by us for you.

This means you will be able  to travel instantly after your appointment to Reload.

If your application requires a paper application, we will advise you of this, and we will create a papered application for you, a digital version and a booking at VFS will be arranged for you. Again we will advise you which option you require BEFORE we start any work for you, and we will only suggest this to you IF it is required for you. You can trust that we will advise you in the best possible way.

These are the current rules set by VFS in 2022 and the Indian High Commission. This information will be confirmed to you after you make a booking with us as VFS and the Indian high commission rules are constantly changing but you can trust that the Reload OCI team are always up to date and we will take care of all formalities, so you are always compliant.

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.

In 2022 – If we suggest you are able to complete a digital application (option 1 above), you can travel immediately after visiting us in Paddington. If your situation for example 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.
  • Your age is a factor

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.

Do I need to fill an OCI application in if I turn 20 or 50 years of age?

In short, you have to complete an OCI application when you turn 20 or 50 years old, but you also need to complete a digital OCI application everytime you have update your British passport OR make a change of particulars to your OCI card – Name, Address, or Profession etc.

Our Digital OCI application renewal help service is here to take care of all formalities for you OR if a change of particulars is needed (example, change of name or profession) then we will take care of your printed and digital OCI application and a booking at VFS. Our team will tell you exactly what is required, regardless if you are 20 or 50 years old.

If you need to carry out any of the following, then you will require a sigital and paper OCI application as well as a visit to a VFS center

– 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.


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.
