Questions: Dear Sir, I have an Aadhar card but have recently acquired Australian Nationality and a OCI Card.

Your advice will be appreciated Thanks and regards A Sinha Answer: There are no provisions to request changes to Aadhaar documents from abroad as Aadhaar is only for Indian residents. Aadhaar is only meant for Indian residents regardless of citizenship status, it is for residents of India.
