  • The correct specifications of OCI Indian passport photos we will also stick that to your application form (this is mandatory btw so the glue is very important)
  • Digitally uploaded photographs and signatures for your OCI Application (mandatory requirement). Our Indian Embassy approved passport photo machine, and fully trained staff will ensure that your OCI application has everything that is required.
  • A full set of hard Copy OCI photos which are suitable for the OCI Application form (if you have opted for the Premier Package). Should you wish to purchase OCI Photos separately instore and are a walk-in customer you are welcome to purchase them for £14.99 for 4 photos.

In short, after we will complete everything you need for your PIO to OCI application and you will have everything you need to submit to VFS – we guarantee you will be accepted or we will redo it for you free of charge.

PIO to OCI Photo specifications

OCI Passport photos specifications include the background colour, size of Indian passport photo, and EVEN the angle of the face as you look at the camera. A kiosk can not help with this, and we have seen many OCI applicants fail as a result of errors in applications or non-qualifying passport photos.

If you just require your Indian OCI Passport photo, we can click and print these instore whilst you wait and we charge £14.99 for Qty: 4 (hard copy) photos. This does not include digitization – if you require this – we charge £4.99 extra. which is why we recommend going for the complete OCI package which includes everything you will need including support and checking of your OCI online applications forms.

We have attached an image below and not many Passport Photo studios in London have the specialist equipment required to get an Indian Passport Photo approved.
