Application Form Tips:

  • Application forms should be filled in fully and accurately. It is an offense to give false information in the Application.
  • Handwritten forms are not accepted. All forms must be filled online.

Application Process:

  • If you are applying for OCI card and Renunciation certificate together, make sure all the supporting documents are attached separately for both the applications. If the same document is required in both processes, you must enclose it twice.
  • Even though not required, colour photocopies of all the relevant documents are preferred.
  • Apart from Indian, applications submitted via agencies or any third party will be denied or rejected.
