Press Release

Advisory about the re-issuance of Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) Card

It has been noticed that some OCI cardholders were not allowed to board flights to India as the passport numbers on their OCI cards did not match with their current passport numbers and the OCI cards had not been reissued.  To avoid this inconvenience, OCI cardholders are required to note the following guidelines regarding re-issuance of OCI Card:

Up to the Age of 20 years: OCI card holders must get their OCI Card re-issued each time their passport is renewed.

Between 21-50 years: Re-issuance of OCI Card is not required each time the passport is renewed. It is, however, advisable to carry the old passport along with the current passport and the OCI Card as part of abundant caution, but it is not mandatory.

After completion of 50 years of age: OCI Card is required to be re-issued mandatorily only once.
