I think febpreet was talking about his PIO card application from 2 years ago. He has not applied for OCI yet and would be applying shortly.

ChandraGupt, did you send all the applications for your family by mail and if yes, did you send them all in one envelope or did you send them each separately in its own envelope?

when you send them applications for all your family members-send all forms/documents in one envalope.
what is point sending in many enavalopes ?

I sent all 4 applications in 1 envalope.
:(

I have also seen that line in the checklist but problem is that on phone 2 people have told me that self attested copies are fine.
.

Notorizing doc's is cheaper in Canada

i paid only $20 for nororizing 20 papers.
so around $1/page .

if you have BLS office in your town than better go & submit personally.
so many issues when you mail application /documents

i had no choice as i am in saskatchewan & we dont have any BLS offcie in SK :(

Well I was again told by a BLS person that it is recommended to send each application in its own envelope, I did find that kind of strange. Anyways I am going to send them in one envelope.

Where did you get 20 docs notarized for $20?

sending in 4 different envalopes-increases chances they may lose some documents- better in one envalope.

are you in calgary/SK ?
go to any local insurance office( cheapest option)-most of them has notary license or google try any mobile-notary - they will come to your home($ 10-20 extra charge)

Hi ChandraGupt,

Thanks for your helpful replies. I'll try to find out an insurance office or see if I can find any mobile notary. This never occurred to me, I was always thinking of going to a lawyer and they are way too expensive.

BLS has already charged me $200 for 4 applications and they have sent me 4 stickers by email - one for each application and each costing $50.

Did you get 5 stickers in total then? 1 for pickup and 4 for delivery back to you?

NO- they send me only one sticker to put all documents in one fed-ex envalope,

they kept remaining stickers /money with them so they can mail my originals once OCI ready

why they charged you $200 for 4 applications ?- courier cost may be different for other provinces- i applied from saskatchewan,

Are you in Alberta or BC ?

I am in Calgary, Alberta.

I wonder why they sent me 4 labels. To add to the confusion, one person told me to put all the applications in one envelope but attach all the 4 shipping labels to the envelope. Next time when I called, another person told me that it is recommended to send each application in its own envelope even if all belong to the same family.

When I asked how would they know if the separate envelopes belong to the same family, he said they'll figure out from the file refereance no which will be same for all the four applications and also asked me to put in a cover letter mentioning it. But when I filled the online part for each of us, it generated a different file reference no for each application. I guess its best to go in person as there is a BLS office in Calgary.
