Advisory to PIO card holders

Advisory to PIO card holders

PIO card holders are advised to convert their cards into OCI cards immediately. A fee of € 95 and consular surcharge of € 3 is being charged by the Embassy/Consulates for this service.

Please note that from October 2018, ICAO will accept only machine readable travel documents and hence existing PIO cards, which are handwritten, would become invalid. It is, therefore, necessary upon PIO card holders to obtain machine readable OCI cards before October 2018 to avoid any inconvenience.
