I assume you atleast have the copy of the Form-A which you send which
should be able to tell you the file number. If not, I am not sure if at all
there is any way of finding this out.

Go to the above website and enter the number that was automatically generated when you printed out Form A in the "Online Registration No." box and click on "Go". That will tell you your case status.

Average time taken to process OCI application at Washington DC

I will be applying for OCI at the Indian Embassy in DC sometime in the last week of Sept or early Oct after I get US citizenship and the US passport. Wanted to know based on your experiences how long it is taking to process OCI start to finish at the DC embassy. I saw some postings from the NY tracker that it is taking 1-2 months and in some cases 3-4 months. Since I will returning to India permanently on Jan 8 and will have about 3 months after getting the US passport, would you folks recommend taking chances and applying for OCI or should I go for PIO card and apply for OCI from India? I don't mind taking chances if most of you are getting OCI start to finish within 3 months.

Also, with the PIO card is it a one-time registration with the FRRO / police station after 6 months of stay or is it every 6 months?

Thanks.

I mailed my app on July 24. Still no acknowledgment. Should I be concerned?
Probably not. There seems to be a wide range of time periods for people to see their applications being acknowledged. Some have waited longer than you have. There is also some anecdotal evidence that people who waited long to receive acknowledgment went from "Under Process" to "Granted" much sooner than those who didn't have to wait long. Give it some more time before deciding what to do next.

Expect a one week lag beyond official date at DC

My recent visa experience shows that it takes a week beyond the offical date put on documents before they are physically mailed. I suspect official dates are tailored for efficiancy data, but true mailing is a week later.

Consider factoring that in our OCI wait times.
