Renunciation with OCI or Visa

Recommended Posts

My husband and I are US Citizens. We will soon be getting our US passports. 

1. How to renounce Indian Citizenship and apply for OCI card. What are the documents required for the same?

2. Can we travel to India in case of any emergency while OCI is in process? How can we do this? Please advise.

Apply for a 10 year visa if you think there might be need for Urgent travel before the OCI. Also there is visa on arrival for US Citizens available to you.Anyway you have to send the Indian Passports to the Embassy with a covering letter and they will cancel it and return the passports to you

Your Indian citizenship is automatically gone from the day you became a US citizen. You have to send your Indian passport to the Indian consulate.

You can apply for OCI and Renounce Indian Citizenship same time, check CKGS website for more details. You cal also apply for e-visa which will allow two entries to India within 60 days of your first arrival.

while OCI is in process/pending, all passports including US and Indian are submitted as documents for verification. How can we travel without the passport?

Get 10 year visas in as little as 3-4 days. Get visa on arrival in India for this visit. See if there is Tatkal etc. for OCI back home.

They send back to passport immediately after verification. Once you get the passport back, you can apply for visa.

Both US and Indian passports will be returned to you within 2 weeks and then the OCI process will continue and take its own Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet time.
