Person of Indian Origin (PIO) Card

Since PIO and OCI Card Schemes have been merged, Government of India has decided to discontinue issuance of any new PIO card with effect from January 9, 2015.  All applicants will now have to apply for OCI card only. The OCI application form is available on the website https://passport.gov.in/oci/.  The OCI form has to be filled up online.  Subsequently, a copy of the filled up OCI application form downloaded from the website, along with supporting documents, are to be submitted to the High Commission of India, Kuala Lumpur.  In addition, you may also see the website of the High Commission of India, Kuala Lumpur (click here) for the list of supporting documents required for verification of OCI cards, as well as frequently asked questions (FAQ) related to OCI card.
