Updating pio card with new passport details
“I don’t encourage people to come surrender their PIO, there is no need,” said Mr. “Once they come back from India, they can go ahead and apply for an OCI card,” he added.
There was email notification for every update on the file. So, we don’t have a choice unless documents were submited in person.
If you get a new passport and you still have a valid PIO card, you can either carry both the passports while traveling to India or you can get the new passport number endorsed in your PIO card.
