A. For Spouse

1. Indian passport of you both

2. Landing papers of you both

3. Citizenship Certificate of hers

4. Current Canadian Passport

5. Marriage certificate

6. Photograph = 51mm x51mm
It should be god, clear without glasses, showing fore head, face, nose and ears.
Pl. see the sample picture

7. Signatures on white paper.

B. for children

1. Indian Passports of both the Parents

2. Marriage certificate of Parents

3. Birth certificates

4. Current Canadian Passports.

5. Thumb Prints on a white Paper

Did you put the child's thumbprint on the generated form as well? The form which is generated for me already has the child's thumbprint and should we override it or leave it?
Also in page 2, do we need thumbprints as well?

I need to convert PIO to OCI for my daughter she has a valid PIO and I have completed both Part A and B online, not sure what are the next steps, so confusing, are there any more of these forms to be filled and submitted?
Both of us (Parents) already have OCI

submitted our PIO to OCI conversion applications at Brampton location. Took total 1 hr , half and hour wait and another half an hour for the person to process four applications. No issues .

Took copies of the following documents ( No originals- they do not require original at the time of submission)

Valid Canadian passport
First and last page of the PIO card
Proof of residence (Not required but Just in case)

Make sure applicants sign above copies (self-attested)

print out of the online application - affix one photo on this application and also sign this application.

Screenshot of the online application submission (Last page is important where it shows you have uploaded your passport and Pio card)

If you do not have time to go to the center then they can arrange to pick up your application from your home thru Fedex. No originals need to be submitted. call BLS support line.

Finally got my new OCI. A few days shy of six months. That's how long it took me to convert my PIO to OCI here in my neck of the woods in India. My relative in NYC got hers in less than seven weeks, and that too hassle free.

Lesson from all of this, start the process right away when any Govt. Order goes in effect in India. The closer you get to deadline, the more clogged govt. offices you will have to deal with. They are simply understaffed and untrained for the slightest increase in workload.
