OCI Sticker and Certificate for New Passport




Hi:

My child's canadian passport is up for renewal. We all got our OCI's in Feb 2010. i checked on the website and eveytime a childs passport is renewed, we need a new OCI sticker and certificate.

Has anyone applied for this?
I know you have to fill forms and collect documents.

Please share your experience if anyone has availed the "OCI Misc Service".

Thanks.

No first hand information, but there are immigration forums where people with kids managed to get through with the new passport, old passport with OCI sticker and then the OCI card.

Even if people told me to do it, I wouldn't risk it as the direction from the consulate is to get a new sticker paying $25, it does involve effort but not worth the risk.

The immigration officers in the Indian Airports are usually very accommodating, why to take a chance...

Sorry, the link where I had this information doesn't connect to.
Can you check r2iclubforums or other websites.

Process is the same as applying for OCI except for the fees. It is mandatory depending on age.
------------------------
Up to the completion of 20 years of age, OCI documents have to be re-issued each time a new passport is issued to the holder as the physical appearance changes.

Between 21-50 years of age, there is no need to seek re-issuance of OCI documents each time a new passport is issued. You can travel with new passport, Old passport (where OCI visa sticker is affixed) and OCI card. It is always better to be on the safer side and get the new OCI card as we often forget to carry our old passport while travelling. This is suggested as OCI card holder will have mental peace.

After the completion of 50 years of age, OCI documents have to be re-issued once after issuance of a new passport and whenever physical appearance changes.

The fee is minor, the work involved is consuming. Pretty much all the documents that were submitted during the original OCI have to be submitted for renewal. They ask for parents' documents as well. Hence becomes an involved process.

Kumar M,
I am in the same situation. I will be getting a new passport for a person under 16 years in April 2012.
Once you find out, can you update the forum as what needs to be done (I am located permanently in India) and the time lines that you experience.
Peace
