No more time to convert PIO cards, Indian expats told

Dubai: Indians holding PIO [Person of Indian Origin] cards will not be given an extension for converting them to OCI [Overseas Citizen of India] cards.

“The Government of India has fixed the deadline for conversion of PIO cards into OCI cards as December 31, 2017. It has also been decided that no further extension of this deadline for the conversion will be approved. It is, therefore, once again requested that all PIO cardholders may convert their cards to OCI at the earliest and in any case before December 31, 2017,” the Indian Consulate in Dubai said in a press release.
