Home Ministry relaxed rule for Overseas Citizens of India till 30 June 2020

The Home ministry asked the External Affairs Ministry to advice the Indian Missions abroad to temporarily relax the conditions in the wake of problems faced by the cardholders.

 

In order to facilitate OCI cardholders, the requirement has been relaxed till June 30, 2020, according to the union home ministry instructions.

The OCI card gives the cardholder lifelong visa to India. The Ministry has been informed that immigration authorities and airlines in some countries are not allowing OCI cardholders to travel to India because of either the cardholder did not re-registered after attaining 50 years of age or did not get it re-issued on passport renewal (for the age group of below 20 years), the December 17 order said.
