We will be watching this forum throughout Coronavirus/Covid emergencies to post information and to answer your questions about affected US immigration and visas:
Can a non-U.S. citizen once citizen of India can apply for OCI from the U.S.? I am currently on work visa.
I sent my OCI pkg over weekend thru Express mail for today's receival to Houston. In how many days generally, I Am able to see updated status on website? thanx..
I have just completed putting my application papers together for OCI application - I am a Canadian national and live/work in Florida. Therefore basis my current location, I am mailing my papers to Houston.
I am wondering how long it would take for my OCI to be approved and have the U-sticker + have my canadian passport endorsed. Am planning a trip to India in the first week of June - is it realistic to assume that the OCI processing would be complete before then?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I sent in my OCI application to Houston in 02-'09. OCI was granted and the documents received at Houston on Apr 21st. I waited for the email to arrive. When it didn't, I sent in my US and Indian passports yesterday.
As luck would have it, I received an email today and besides the usual 'granted' information, the email ends with
"Please do enclose Indian Passports though cancelled".
I had a current Indian PP which I sent, but not the older/cancelled Indian PP.
Should I send this in now or wait to see what happens? I have an upcoming trip to Indian on Jun 7th and am afraid they will hold up the documents until they receive the 'cancelled PPs'. I have sent them an email, but I know that I may not be a response.
Does anyone have experience with this? My gut tells me to send in the cancelled PPs right away. Any advice is appreciated.
