The deadline to apply for the Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) Card in lieu of the Person of Indian Origin (PIO) Card has been further extended from June 30, 2017 until December 31, 2017.

What This Means for Foreign Nationals
PIO Card holders should apply for the OCI Card in lieu of PIO Card by December 31, 2017.  The application process remains the same, and applicants awaiting the approval of their OCI in lieu of PIO Card applications can continue to travel under their PIO Card.

It is anticipated that the switch from PIO Card to OCI Card will eventually be mandatory. PIO Card holders should contact their immigration professionals to apply for the OCI Card in lieu of PIO Card before December 31, 2017.
