Renunciation/OCI Help

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am applying OCI for myself. After reading through the very confusing instructions (or lack of), I decided to hop on here to ask questions/get answers and understand the process better so that I can prepare my packet and get this last piece of the puzzle done. 

 

So a little background, I immigrated over to the USA in and married my American husband in 2011. I finally completed my Naturalization process in 2017. I put it off a bit but I finally got a US passport in April 2019. I know, I know I put it off for a bit and you all must think I am crazy but I sort of forgot about getting my passport. Luckily I haven't had any emergencies or urgent situations pop up that required travel outside of the country. 

 

Anyway, long story short, here are my questions:

 

1. I started doing the Application on the CKGS website but I am unable to find a proper checklist that I can print? Everything is very complicatedly written send this OR this OR this OR that. Do I have to send all that I have or is it just a single thing in each category? I just want to understand what I am sending and what needs to be original/copy/notarized, if that makes sense?

 

2. Can anyone explain the envelope system to me please? I need to send it via a certain way with a return envelope? Can I send it via USPS or does it have to be FedEx or UPS?

 

3. I am an Indian Citizen born in Dubai UAE do I need to send in my Birth Certificate? Original, Copy or Notarized? It is in English and Arabic. Am I going to have problems? Also, do I need to send my parents marriage certificate or passport pages proving they are Indian Nationals?

 

4. I am apply to the Atlanta Jurisdiction can I Renounce and Apply for OCI at the same time? 

 

5. When do I send in my US passport? Is it at a later stage? (Also, spouses name is not printed in US passport?) 

 

Thanks for any help in demystifying these instructions, I forgot how roundabout we Indian's truly are!
