Proof of not holding Indian Passport
Dear Remie
Thanks for your response.
When we were in Goa in April, we consulted a solicitor for other matters, however the subject of OCI came up and he advised that she can apply for it - because even though she and her parents and Grandparents where born in Goa whilst under Portuguese rule, they are still classed as being born in India and of Indian origin and hence she is eligible.
This is all very confusing!

Regards
Patricia

my mother lost her birth certificate
Dear Tony

Your mother can always apply for a new copy at the concerned sub registrar.

With only the Baptism certificate it is impossible to apply, but if you say she was baptized before 1911 then yes it is possible.

If you need help in finding out your mothers documents please get in touch with me.

Best Regards

Schengen Visa / Poland
Dear Maria

No you cannot apply for Schengen visa to Poland at the Portuguese consulate in Goa.

The rule is you have to apply at the embassy of the country you will be visiting, in your case the Polish embassy in Delhi.

Now if you are visit 2 or more Schengen countries... during your visit then you have to apply at the embassy of the First country you will be visiting.

Hope this helps

Proof of not holding an Indian Passport
Dear Patricia

You mentioned the following

"....She is now trying to apply for an OCI but needs to prove she has not got an Indian passport..."

To what I believe OCI is only given to peopl who have had a Indian passport in the past or those who are appltyin on the basis if their Parents indian citizen ship.

In both the cases neither your mom can be considered Indian (as you mentioned she left Goa for Kneya before 1961) nor were her Paresnta Indian as they were citizen pg Portuguese Goa...

So I would say that your mother is not eligible to apply for OCI. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Best Regards

maiden name on child birth certificate
Dear Seena

As Kingsley highlighted there is no need to change their birth certificate as long as your name appears on their certificate as their mother.

Hope this helps

Dear Mario

If is not through that CRC is not processing anything... I just got a marriage registered...

Yes it is true that in the month of August and September the process becomes a bit slow, because of under staffing.
