Kid's citizenship documents requirement

OCI requirement states:

7.Copy of Naturalization Certificate:
... If a minor gained naturalization through his/her parents and possesses no separate naturalization certificate, then copies of the parents' naturalization certificates and a notarized written statement signed by both parents is required stating the circumstances that their child received his/her naturalization status and why the child does not possess his/her own certificate.


Can someone please tell me what written statement have you put? Any write-up?
Any help will be appreciated.

Got an email from TRAVISA:

"Your OCI Card has been received from Delhi and is now ready to be matched up with your original US or non-Indian passport. You must now send in your original US or non-Indian passport by mail only (no in person submissions) to the Travisa Outsourcing office where you submitted your OCI application. You must send the exact same passport that you entered on your OCI application form.
It is strongly recommended to send in your passport by a track-able method such as FedEx or UPS. Do not provide a handwritten or manual UPS or FedEx air bill. Handwritten and manual airbills cannot be used by our office."


And the TRAVISA site has the updated status (updated at 7/17, 4:20 PM) as well, but http://passport.gov.in/oci/OnlineOCIenquiry.jsp is not updated yet.

Yes

Any updates or movement in status?

I am in the same boat for about 25 days now.


There has been some updates. The cards were dispatched on 08th October and received on 17th October by the consulate. I sent my passports on 19th and waiting for them to match up and return.

Quick question:

Do I need to send the fees separately for OCI ($278) and for Travisa ($12) or is it a single check for $290? I don't think I found any answer to this anywhere. Please advice. Thanks

MHA tracking available for adults, but not for minor

Hi

I have a quick question regarding the OCI process in SFO. I sent our family application (2 adults and 1 minor) to travisa initially on 11/25/2012 and after couple of clarifications sent to the SFO Consulate 12/21/2012. I can now view the application through MHA web site for both adults (me and my wife) but not yet for the minor. Any one faced a similar kind of issue?

Thanks

Renunciation the Indian Passport and OCI card

Help needed from Gurus.

Once I get the US passport, Which step to be done first.

1) Renunciation of Indian passport

2) Apply for OCI card

3) I have a son, who is a US citizen with PIO card. Can I apply an OCI card for him along with my OCI application?

Please advice. As I am having a hard time understanding the process in the TRAVISA website.

Many thanks,

Help with tracking OCI status

Hi Folks,

I need some suggestions/help if you have been in similar situation or heard of anything relevant. Here is my situation:

Applied for OCI (Family-application) - acknowledgement date : 17th Jan

OCI-number is shown on the application status webpage

Document printing status: processed on 10th Feb 2014

Dispatched from India: 13th Feb 2014

and after this no update (i.e. no date shown for documents received at SFO column), I am planning to travel to India in the last week of March. I tried to call SFO consulate, BLS office at SFO, no response. Later created tickets on website, no luck there as well.

Any suggestions on what should I do, I am planning to go to BLS office in couple of days and would be applying for tourist/entry visa if could not hear back from them early next week.

Any help/suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
