Good afternoon folks!

I got my OCI card delivered today Sept 9, 2022 at my home address. But, there no update related to shipment or delivery at OCI govt's website and BLS website. I had submitted at BLS on July 28th, 2022 while walk in.


Date Of Acknowledgment 12-AUG-2022
Registration Status at Mission TORONTO
Documents Printing Status PROCESSED 02-SEP-2022
Dispatched From MEA (OCI ) NEW DELHI 03-SEP-2022
Document received At TORONTO 03-SEP-2022

Hope this information would be helpful for who is waiting

As a side note if anyone knows, these OCI cards has only 2 or 3 blank pages. These are for life. So question is after few visits when these blank pages would be stamped, do we have to request for a new OCI? does anyone knows about it?

Thank you

A guess is these wont be used at all as the stamping goes in current Passport which is canadian now. These two blank pages will be far enough as they will remain blank

They do not stamp on the OCI booklet pages. The stamps are done on the passport pages.
My daughter has OCI and they never stamped the OCI booklet.

mmm! My Son's OCI card has mis-spelled last name for one of the parents at last page. Does anyone knows what is the process/procedure to get that corrected?. I think that is mistake on our side while filling up the forms.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Looking at other people's timeline you should have received AOR by now, my best guess is your application is returned for something missing (this is just a guess). Happened with my son's application too, BLS will contact you (try calling them, I don't think that will help though).
Huh!

Do you mean there is a chance that CGI has returned the application and BLS is sitting on it for some reason?

there might be a chance that the CGI needs additional doc and usually the process is slow (I am not sure if it's CGI or BLS).

Do they stamp OCI on visit to India ? I think that visits should be maintained in your current/canadian passport?

Experts who have OCI and visited India multiple times, please guide.

Thank you for information. But looks to me this docs is too old. because in the Document at number 2 says "If you cannot visit the VAC, it is recommended that you use the postal service to submit your application. Alternatively, to book a pickup and/or drop via FedEx, visit http://www.blsindia-canada.com/vas/ "

Other day rep at BLS call center told me that they only use Purolator for courier. No other company is allowed.

Also this document has no release date (at footer or header). This process of applying OCI is so difficult. I have to call BLS call center 20 times. Instructions are not clear.

Anyway! thank you again for your help.
