Sending Kids to India for boarding school - need advice on steps to follow

A friend of mine, married to a cool white chick in US, had to return to India; they have two kids and put both of them in KIIT international school in Bhubaneswar. The wife works there too as English program director. They seem to like it there so much, they have been gone for more than 6 years! Originally, they meant to stay there for one year only. My guess (only) is that he may have gotten OCI for wife and kids. I heard the kids on youtube: they are boisterous, noisy and speak English with some distortions (the kid says her granma is worm.... of course she meant WARM lol). The mom keeps teaching them the right way to say words). I was thrilled to see how much they fit in and are oblivious to the fact it is India. So I moved a few crores into Indian banks and am working on retiring and heading back.

So look for any well known International schools so your kids don't lose English and also learn the local language. Obviously, they need parent(s) close by; money alone does not build character so do not brag about supporting them cashwise, and they will develop emotionally on their own. They need hugs, encouragement AND discipline.

You are probably applying for a 5 yr Entry Visa aka Visitor Visa. Its a multi entry visa, you can come and go as many times as you want in 5 yrs.

The visa might be 5 yrs, but for most Indian Visa's the following conditions apply, if you stay for more than 180 days CONTINUOSLY, which will be the case in your children's case.

Whether they enforce this strictly or not is a whole different thing. Usually they don't, especially in case of kids.

Conditions :

1.The period of continuous stay during each visit will not exceed 180 days.

2.Registration with concerned FRRO/FRO will be required for continuous stay exceeding 180 days.

OCI you won't have to report/register to a FRO, FRRO, MEA, Police station if you exceed 180 days in one visit/stay

Passport renewal isn't an issue at all. It can be renewed from India too.

OCI is only 2 months to get. And same cost as a 5 yr Visa, so you still have lot of time if you are putting them in 2017.

So might as well go for OCI. Will also help in getting Indian ID's like Aadhaar Card, PAN card, Drivers License, Cell phone in your name, buying property,Opening bank accounts. Not all of this apply to your kids, but will apply to you.

Leave it blank if there is no * on it . * means you have to enter something as its mandatory.

Only enter it if its different from your Canadian address. Entering your India address is fine too. They don't care about this field.

They only care about the * field , proper documents, proper photo, proper fees.
