ATTENTION ALL PIO CARD HOLDERS

DEADLINE FOR CONVERSION OF PIO CARD TO OCI CARD IS DECEMBER 31, 2017

 

The deadline for conversion of Persons of Indian Origin Card (PIO Card) into Overseas Citizen of India Card (OCI Card) has been fixed as December 31, 2017. 

This is to inform that once the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) guidelines with respect to travel with machine readable travel documents are implemented during October/November 2018, those travelling to India on the basis of their PIO Cards (handwritten) will be refused entry at the Indian immigration counters.  

All PIO Card holders are hereby urged to apply for conversion of their PIO cards to OCI cards before December 31, 2017.  The conversion from PIO to OCI card is currently exempt from levy of any fee (only ICWF @ MAD 30/- is chargeable).  However, after the deadline (of December 31, 2017) the conversion (PIO to OCI card) will attract a fee equivalent to fee charged for issuance of fresh OCI card (currently MAD 3115/- + ICWF-MAD 30/-).
