I was born in the US and moved to India when I was 3 years old.

Now I am back in the USA and my Persons of Indian Origin Card (PIO Card) has expired, so I am applying for a visa because my Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI) won't reach me in time for my travel date.

There's a question on the application:

Have you ever visited India before?

If I tick Yes, it asks me for my Visa No. and place of issue; I have never visited India on a visa before.

Should I just tick "No"?

    Never lie to immigration officials, not in filling out forms and not in person. – Willeke May 15 '18 at 13:11

    As an aside are you even allowed to apply for a visa if you are an OCI? – DJClayworth May 15 '18 at 13:23

    in.ckgs.us/faq/visa/general-visa-questions/11/… @DJClayworth, Yes it seems OP can apply for visa and OCI together. (Check "Can I apply for visa and OCI together question") . OP, can you add the PIO card number (which I presume you used to visit India) in place of Visa no.? – AVJ May 16 '18 at 16:36
