Citizenship: India offers Overseas Citizenship of India

From today, the Indian government is offering Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI) to foreigners married to Indian citizens and their children holding foreign passports.

The OCI costs $275 and holders will be issued a special, multiple entry visa to India that offers all benefits enjoyed by Indian nationals, except political rights.
