Application for Conversion from PIO to OCI Cards

Erstwhile PIO card holders are advised to submit the application for issuing of OCI card (in lieu of valid PIO cards). Please refer to the link www.ociservices.gov.in  for details.

The PIO card scheme has been withdrawn. It may also please be noted that the International Civil Aviation Organisation has specified that only machine readable travel documents would be acceptable w.e.f. October 2018. The PIO cards being handwritten documents, will become invalid travel documents w.e.f. this date. Those travelling to India on the strength of hand written PIO cards beyond October 2018, would be refused entry at the Indian Immigration counters and sent back. All PIO card holders are, therefore, required to convert it to OCI card at the earliest.The fee for conversion of PIO card to OCI card is SGD 140.00.
