My uncle is US citizen and would like to apply for OCI card. He is 75 years old became US Citizen in 1980. He does not have his old Indian passport. I understood from required documents for Proof of Renunciation of Indian Citizenship, He need to submit (2) copies of a deemed surrender certificate form. Please correct me if I am wrong. Please let me know if I need to submit any other document(s) for Renunciation of Indian Citizenship.

Can anyone please give email id to contact travisa houston office. On their website application id is required to contact them:(, I tried to call them but as always nobody picked up phone after holding 30 mins.

Thanks.

Your estimate of the completion of an OCI process by mid-December

Can you guys give me some general advice about whether I should apply for OCI or not within the next few days (i.e., on or before September 7), and expect it to be completed by December? I have to travel to India on December 13, 2013 with my "new" US passport for the very first time (after getting my US passport in 2011).

If I apply for the OCI now (on/before Sep. 7), what -- in your best "guestimate" -- are the chances that I can get the OCI done before I leave on Dec. 13? Is it too risky to depend upon the OCI for my travel at this point? Should I just try to get a visa? Or, could I start the OCI application process and keep the visa option open (as a back up) in case the OCI appears to move too slowly?

Thank you for your attention, and I will be grateful for your replies.
