IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FOR PIO CARD HOLDERS

It has been brought to the notice of Government of India that from October 2018, International Civil Aviation Organization will accept only machine readable travel documents. The existing PIO cards which are hand written will, therefore, become invalid travel documents. Hence, it will be necessary upon PIO cardholders to obtain machine readable OCI cards in lieu of existing hand written PIO cards before October 2018 to avoid any inconvenience.

All PIO card holders may please note that in order to take advantage of getting such PIO cards converted into machine readable OCI cards on gratis basis, it is advisable to get these converted before 31.12.2017.
