Thanks for ur response- yea I already had the tourist visa stamped since I didnt want to take a chance knowing how these guys function. I think I will submit my pp for stickers after I come back. But what about the oci booklet - should I go pick that up? There is always a possibility of them losing it right?



Both are given at the same time and together. They Won't give it to you seperately.

OCI booklet is basically a joke. The more important thing is the OCI sticker on your PP .

Make sure you take both with you, when you travel.

If your Canadian PP with the OCI sticker expires , still carry the old Canadian PP with the OCI sticker and the new Canadian PP and the OCI booklet with you.

To anyone who successfully got the OCI:

What should be entered in the place for Canada Citizenship Acquisition Method?

I migrated to Canada as a permanent resident in the Family Class Skilled Worker category.

I am confused between the choice of 'NATURALIZATION' and 'REGISTRATION'.

Kindly advice.

Apparently they now courier the newly applied OCI booklet to your Canadian address. There is no need to get a sticker on your Canadian passport any more. The OCI booklet contains details of your Canadian passport.

Furthermore, in case of acquiring a new Canadian passport, if you still hold the old Canadian passport you need not reapply for a new booklet but carry the old passport along with you,

Hope my understanding is right.

You can email to indian consulate and request to issue OCI card early . You can send them your travel ticket as a proof . I have very good experience with Vancouver consulate . My indian passport was due for renew and I have to travel to India in 2 weeks . My passport was issued from middle east so they have to get verification from issuing consulate . I sent email to consulate and one of officer called me back and took all the details and asked me to send some more documents by email and he followed it promptly and I got my passport in 10 days .

Current Timeline for OCI
I applied for OCI renewal through BLS Surrey (postal application). Here is my timeline.

Delivered to Surrey BLS office: 16 Dec 2015
Application Acknowledgement at Consulate: 01 Mar 2016
Status: Under processing (as of 14 April 2016)

The 42 days timeline from acknowledgement to printing is a farce. When I applied for my OCI card in 2010, the whole process took less than 3 month from receipt of the application at VFS office to delivery of the card and this is just a renewal.

Modi's "less government more governance" in action. On the other hand the Canadian passport took just under 10 days to renew.
