SF Consulate to print OCI Cards, hopes to cut waiting time


The Consulate General of India in San Francisco has announced a significant operational change: the printing of Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) cards will now take place locally, rather than being issued solely in India. This move is anticipated to enhance service efficiency and convenience for the Indian community residing in the consulate’s jurisdiction, encompassing the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and the Territory of Guam.

The decision to print OCI cards locally aims to reduce waiting times drastically, with expectations of cutting down processing periods by nearly two weeks. Emphasizing the consulate’s dedication to improving service delivery, a statement from their social media handle expressed gratitude to the community for their patience and support during this transition. It underscored the consulate’s unwavering commitment to prioritizing customer satisfaction.

OCI cards are typically issued to registered Persons of Indian Origin holding passports from foreign countries. This development signifies a concerted effort to streamline administrative processes and provide more accessible services to individuals of Indian heritage residing abroad.
