CONVERSION OF PIO CARDS TO OCI CARDS-

This is to inform that a decision has been taken in the Government of India, according to which the quantum of fee to be charged for OCI card in lieu of PIO Card will be US Dollars 100/-. These charges will be effective for all such applications which have been filled after 31.12.2017. Government of India had recently announced that ICAO will accept only machine readable travel documents, hence, existing PIO Card, which are handwritten will therefore, become invalid. Thus, it will be necessary upon PIO Cardholders to obtain machine readable OCI Cards in lieu of hand written PIO Cards before 30th September, 2020 to avoid any inconvenience.
