  1. Hello. I just watched your webinar and learned so much. Thank you for your expertise and this truly valuable information.

    I am a PAP registered as of March 2018. I am an OCI card holder living in India. I fall into a category where there’s absolutely no information on my particular situation and OCI card holders arent given a waitlist number either. Which means I’m left in the dark about where I am in the process other than knowing my HSR has been approved. Do you have any any insight as to how my process works? CARA has said that PAPS in my category will only get a referral after the file has been passed over by a few (they won’t specify an exact number) resident parents first and be available for referral to them for 60 days prior to being referred to me. I’m quite confused and would like some clarity since CARA hasn’t been very forthright with my case.
    Thanks a lot. I look forward to your guidance.
