Changes in OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) applications

It has been a requirement of the High Commission of India for all OCI applications made after 1 December 2015 to have individual digital photographs and signatures uploaded to the secure online server from computers. Many people of all abilities have experienced difficulties and frustration due to the peculiarities of this web-based service, and the ICCA is therefore pleased to be of assistance to those wishing to complete their OCI applications. The ICCA OCI application service includes the use of a digital camera and suchlike. For further information, please call our Visa and Passport Service on 0115 969 3402.
