Hello, I walked in to BLS bramton for OCI renwel (after turning 20) On September 8th
Date of ACK - September 25th 2023
How long has it been taking recently?

I have a flight October 22nd. What are my chances of getting my new OCI Card?
Can I travel with a copy of my old OCI and old passport ?

We had a similar situation with slow visa processing last year when e-visa was not yet resumed for Canadians. The HCI was hardly helpful -- they blamed it on "strained resources" and partly on BLS at that time. Ottawa has been woefully slow compared to the other two missions with OCI processing for a long time and they seem to be doing nothing about it. They could divert some of the resources that was earlier used for Visa processing to OCI: probably there are operational constraints with that, but I do not think the HCI really cares.

In this particular case, pleading the local (Vancouver) Consul General or the vice Consul in charge of OCI may be more effective than contacting the high commission in Ottawa.

Is this total processing time after date of acknowledgement? So if we add 2-3 weeks for acknowledgement, it's taking 12-13 weeks for OCI?

Is it only for Ottawa applicants or for other locations as well?
