Posted on: August 28, 2016 | Back | Print

As per Government of India’s directives, all the holders of Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) cards are, hereby, informed that the existing PIO cards will cease to be in effect after June 30, 2016. All concerned are, therefore, advised to have the PIO cards converted to OCI cards. The procedure for filling the application online for issuance of OCI and the supporting documents required for this purpose have been simplified and only a copy of valid PIO card and a copy of current valid passport are now required for the conversion of PIO card to OCI card. Consular Wing of the Mission could be contacted at Tel. 24684585, Fax 24692791, Email attvisa@indemb-oman.org, for further queries, if any, in this regard.
