Is my OCI card still valid in an expired passport?
OCI (Overseas Citizenship of India)
Applicants may be required to reapply for OCI Re-issue when they get a new passport based on the following factors:
- For an applicant who is 20 years of age or younger, OCI documents must be re-issued each time a new passport is issued.
- For an applicant who is 50 years of age or older, OCI documents must be re-issued once after the issuance of a new passport. If the OCI card is issued for the first time after the age of 50 years, then there is no need for re-issuance of OCI.
- For an applicant who are 21 to 49 years of age, there is no need to re-issue OCI documents each time a new passport is issued. However, if the applicant desires, he/she can request that the OCI documents be re-issued so that the OCI documents reflect the correct passport number.
At this time, Peninsula Visa does not assist with OCI and this process will be to be completed by the applicant.
