Not required to submit your Canadian passport

But if you are submitting in person you need to bring your originals along for verification

They may however keep the surrender certificate and/or cancelled Indian passport

if you are submitting via post, then only send self attested copies by post

Expiernce letter current dated will be ideal

There is a NOC sample on the BLS website https://www.blsindia-canada.com/toronto-jurisdiction/pdf/no-objection-letter.pdf
Which has to be filled, signed and include photos of each parents per child

Hello everyone, any help on the below please

Indian passport has
given name - jaspreet singh
family name - (empty)

Canadian passport
given name - xxx
family name - Jaspreet Singh

in the OCI application it asks for the previous name. when i saw the sample form online on BLS website it says " if Indian passport has different name, mention it here and in the form filling instructions it says i need to submit affidavit as well.

can anyone please guide on this. @abbas.pasha @2017CanadaHo!

How did Jaspreet Singh end up as a family name in your Canadian passport? Isn't that a given name?

yes, jaspreet singh is the given name in my indian passport.
BUT when there isn't any last name in the indian passport, the given name in indian passport becomes the last name in canadian passport and xxx is used as first name

I think an affidavit would be required.
