5. Can born in Pakistan spouse of OCI holder get PIO card

Question: First of all, it’s a great website. Loads of information concerning NRIs and facilities available to them is very helpful. Kindly please assist with the following question: Is the wife of a foreign passport holder (husband is eligible for OCI and PIO) can apply to become PIO? The wife was born in Pakistan but is not a Pakistani citizen and is a foreign passport holder. Will appreciate your answer to above query. Regards N. Sehgal Answer: The country of birth is what is normally considered. Even though your wife is currently not a Pakistani citizen currently, the fact that her place of birth is Pakistan and  she may have been a Pakistani citizen before acquiring foreign citizenship would disqualify her from being eligible of PIO card. The rule for eligibility for a PIO card, disqualifies anyone who was at any time a citizen of Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. You could of course confirm with the Indian consulate.
