About Us Guidlines for OCI & PIO card holders

For all OCI card holders travelling to India it is mandatory to carry their OCI booklet along with their foreign passports. If OCI card holders do not carry their OCI card along with them while travelling to India, but carry their foreign passport bearing ‘U’ visa sticker, entry to India will not be allowed to them.

        From October 2018, ICAO will accept only machine readable travel documents, hence, existing PIO cards, which are handwritten will become invalid. Therefore, all PIO card holders are requested to apply for machine readable OCI cards in lieu of existing handwritten PIO cards before September 30, 2018to avoid any inconvenience.
