I thought I had read on the cgitoronto.ca website a while back that they can give you a new OCI sticker for your new Canadian passport for $10 or an amount pretty close to that..

Yes, all this information is on the cgi toronto website. People ask very simple questions on this forum without reading the prime source of information (in this case, the consulate web site) when it is readily available.

But, what if your canadian passport expires within 5 years and your new canadian passport is without the lifelong OCI stamp in it...will this not pose a problem in india?

thanks

seenappa



you could get OCI re-stamped in the new passport I believe for 25$ or just carry the expired CDN passport with OCI stamp along with new CDN passport.



thanks guys for all the replies.

It makes me wonder why another stamping is required when you have the original OCI booklet itself.
well, that's red tape for you.:(

No wonder that the guy asked for Indian Passport. Guess he just wanted some money. Mumbai airport must be the most corrupt and the toughest (on passengers) airport in India.

Even though out of place - Last time I went via Mumbai International airport I heard this funny announcement. "Passengers traveling in Flight to London please stand in a queue in ascending order of your seat number starting with number 1". And guess what, the guy at the gate was expecting all passengers to stand in line based on their seat number assuming every one knows the seat number of person standing in front. It was chaos.

Another experience that my friend has was two gundas stopped him while going from one gate to another. They asked him for 100 dollars. So beware if you have to change flight in Bombay.

Didn't want to start a new thread for my issue.
I have been trying to download the Application Form for Visa for my 8 month old Canada born kid but it keeps popping up the Username and Password dialogue box...any idea how to get to the form and whats with this Username Pwd thing. It happens in both Word and PDF format.
The Consulate won't pick up the phone ...its getting late coz we'll get her passport on 2nd April then i'll apply for Visa and want to fly on 10th April.
Can we make it in time?

Thanks Viggy ... i just tried doubleclick in that dialogue box..it disappeared and i could get to the form. Don't you think their website is not very userfriendly.Also they sound quite rigid in their text on the site.

Ashwani please don't even mention the word...i keep reminding myself of Gandhiji's 3 monkeys. 'Bura mat bolo' being replaced by 'bura mat type karo' and 'bura mat suno' being replaced by 'bura mat type karo'.:nono:

anyways going back to business ...what is the usual time Indian consulate takes to issue Visa for a kid who is Canadian born belonging to parents holding PR status.
Hope to hear from 'Sincere hearts' soon.:D

Timeline is 1 day plus mail transit both ways. CGI Toronto gives you the visa tracker info.
