    OCI process

    I don't think they would take anything original. I just went for surrender of my passport today & there are at least 3-4 candidates that are there because of a minor error in postal submission. Just do a walk-in or better book an appointment for Toronto BLS. They gave me back my 129$ DD as they...

    Not sure about 1) I mailed my application via purolator & that’s all they said they accepted. 2 No need to send original of citizenship cert., a copy with your signature should do.

    OCI process

    I guess they trying to remind Indian “ Paper procedures“ one last time to all of us before they give us that damn OCI. I don’t know maybe we should seek a broker & grease the palms of consulate general & co. to see some movement on the file.

    OCI process

    Bad idea my friend, due to the bubble restrictions between india & uk they only allow for OCI/Indians from uk to India not the other way around. Regardless of your citizenship, BA will only allow passengers to get to UK/Cayman that’s it, you can’t go any further than that. Don’t book BA.

    OCI process

    This is what they told me today that all appointments, walk ins are canceled when I called the Toronto office. Do you know what the phone number of the Brampton office is? I don’t think you need to send your original Canadian passport for OCI.

    OCI process

    Hi guys, I am trying to get my surrender certificate. I called the Toronto BLS office & they claimed that they are not accepting any walk-ins or even appointments for that matter. Everything has to be sent only by post. Has anyone been there in the past week via walk in at all?
