Thank you very much for your reply,

I already have 1 Physical photo, with me, and the same will upload online,
I feel, some people who does'nt get photos from home, will get from BLS ( they will give '2' photos) 1 photo they will keep, other photo to upload.

need to wait who has done, OCI from Lawrence recently.

Thanks

I applied on February 4th, Under process at Consulate on Feb 21.
Got documents back on Feb 24.

So, you should get it sometime this week or early next week.
Thanks for your reply. I have an update on the tracker


Application StatusIn Transit from Consulate General to BLS Centre
Processing at Consulate General


Seems they mailed me back my Surrender Certificate

OCI Portal also shows application as acknowledged :) (Submission Date Feb 11)

No. Date of Acknowledgement is on OCI website. It takes about 3 weeks to appear on OCI website with Date of Acknowledgement and will show "under Process. hopefully you will find this updated info on OCI website by end of next week
Is "Under process" and Processing at High Commision the same? What are the next steps?

Once status changes on OCI website to Printed / dispatched date, approximately it takes another week. Which office you applied at?
BLS Toronto (in Person)

Also, just checked status again on OCI tracker now, it shows:
Date Of Acknowledgment01-FEB-2023
Registration Status at MissionTORONTO
OCI- Number xxxxxxx (I've masked the number)
Documents Printing StatusPROCESSEDOn02-MAR-2023
Dispatched From MEA (OCI )NEW DELHIOn03-MAR-2023
Document received AtTORONTOOn03-MAR-2023

Does that mean I can hopefully expect OCI to be received in the next couple of weeks?

Anyone with a Date of Acknowledgment in Feb get any change in their OCI Application Status yet?
Also I love how this forum is the best resource for OCI info not anything from government of India or BLS.

Is the acknowledgement received by email?
I sent my postal application on 17-Feb and today it shows under process on BLS tracker
However on OCI Status Enquiry it says no records found
Acknowledgement shows up on OCI tracker. It showed no records found for me for almost 5-6 weeks too before the ack.

Based on sayedsameer84 timeline, they are processing applications acknowledged in February, so you can expect the status change in any time from now, as early as tomorrow or Monday- Wednesday next week. Check your status tomorrow after 5

Hello, I applied for canadian passport a week back and want to start preparing for indian passport surrender / oci application. May be this question has been asked before, but wanted to know if surrender and OCI appplications can be done simultaneously at the bls office? I live in vancouver area. Thanks

No first surrender needs to be done and then once you receive the surrender certificate and cancelled Indian passport back(this takes between 3-4 weeks) you can apply for OcU (this takes about 6-8 weeks)
