Hi,
I am expecting an invite in the next draw.I have 2 queries and will be grateful if someone can throw some light on it.
1. I travelled to the UK on 17Nov2013 and returned on 27Jan, travelled again on 2Feb and returned on 13May2014. I have not been to the UK since. That totals to around 173 days. It was clearly less than 6 months. Will I need a PCC from the UK because I was there for more than 5 months?
2. I have an Indian passport and I am currently in the US. I have obtained the Indian PCC from the NY consulate last month and have applied for the US PCC today. I am returning to India this month end and do not plan to return to US atleast for the next 6-9 months. So I would have to change my current residence to India. My US PCC will come in 2-3 months and by then I would have left US, so thats fine. Will I need to apply for an Indian PCC again? I know the one issued in NY consulate will still be valid (As I received it in Apr 2017) if I submit my application by August2017. But will the fact that it was issued in US and not in India be a problem?

Thanks in advance for your help!

1) technically no, but UK PCC is very easy to get so just get it.

Thanks for your reply. The PCC of your country of residence can be upto 6 months old. The one I have from NY consulate is issued in April 2017 and in August it will be only 4 month old. But still you suggest I apply for a new one ones in India? I am leaving for India in May end.

Yes you should - since the PCC for India is for the period you stayed in India. Once you go back that PCC is invalid so you should get a new one for India from Passport Seva Kendra

Any experienced members,

Question based on following background. Me and my spouse have PCC for india obtained AFTER we traveled last to India (currently raising in US).

If I have already gotten ITa and the AoR, and then I travel to India, will I need to get a pcc again?
