PIO (Person of Indian Origin) Cards

Conversion of PIO cards into OCI cards

 

OCI in lieu of PIO card

A separate online application for issue of OCI card in lieu of the PIO card without payment of any registration fee has been devised and available at http://in.ckgs.us. The applicant will have to pay the service charges for the outsourcing company as well as postage charges.

The existing PIO cardholders can travel to India using the PIO card with valid passport. However, the PIO cardholders are advised to apply for OCI in lieu of PIO as soon as possible at http://in.ckgs.us

Last date of conversion from PIO to OCI is December 31, 2017
