Oh yes... I used to wait all year for my two weeks in Chennai. Now I wait all year for my two weeks in London .

One thing hasn't changed though, and that is that I love coming home too where ever it is. However, arriving at Chennai Airport still, somehow, feels better than arriving at Heathrow!

about 1 weeks after
acknowledgement...the photos will be scanned and a date will appear

then granted in about 2 weeks and then after a week printed and despatched from delhi. Then you will get a scroll to say...send pasports to london in 10 days or when docs recd in london. All takes about 6-7 weeks.

Tracking OCI application

Hi Matt, I applied for OCI status three weeks ago. I would like to know how to track my application please, which website I mean and how? You seem to be an expert at this, so please help, thanks.

Hi Flowerpower, welcome to IndiaMike. I have edited your post from SMS gibberish into plain English, you may not realise but English only is one of the site rules. This is to aid our many members who have a first language other than English.

click on the above link and type in your online registration number. save the link. One by one the boxes will be filled up..starting with acknowledgemt (usually takes 1 month to acknowledge), then photo scanning date will come up (takes another 3 weeks for this) and then after another 4 weeks the status will be changed to granted (if all is well). After that the boxes for docs printed, docs despatched and docs received at London will get filled with dates on them. When the docs are recd at London you send in your passports and......

flowerpower, congratulations on your success --- but please let us know about it in English, not in SMS, which is incomprehensible to many of our world-wide members and annoying to many others.

Please take the time and trouble to make those extra few keystrokes and spell out words. You might notice that a number of internet forums, apart from this one, request this.

OCI Birmingham

Hi, me and my brother have applied for oci, we sent all the required paperwork by post to birmingham, I know that they have received the documents, however, everytime i check our status online, it keeps saying that the number has not yet been acknowledged, it has only been 5 weeks but I know that when my mum and sister had applied, their numbers had been aknowledged in just 4 weeks and in total, it only took 8 weeks for their oci to be granted. Does anyone know why it is taking so long just for the numbers to be acknowledged? I have tried calling and e-mailing soooo many times but no one is picking up the phone, or even replying to my e-mails. Does anyone have a phone number or e-mail address which might work where someone who deals with the oci will reply? has anyone else had the same problem as me and did your number get acknowledged later on? Please help me. Thankyou.

But the pic is not square, which it would be if either was right. Isn't it supposes to one of each --- 51 * 35 ?

Nick,

For OCI they want square photos. Earlier the standard was 35x35mm but nowadays it is 51x51mm.

Also on the form it says the photo should be at least 51x51mm. So I guess you could furnish a photo 1 metre square.

Also the box to paste the photo on the OCI (part A) is not the correct size. So dont worry if your 51mm print is too big for the box.

square photos! Amazing. I thought all bureaucracy worked on the standard passport format!

Thanks for pointing that out. Not that I'll ever be able to apply for OCU, but at least I can stop misleading others now
