Easy And Fast PAN Card Process For UK Residents!

 The below applicant categories are eligible to get their PAN numbers processed.

What is the process of PAN card? 

  1. The very first step is to understand your eligibility. If you are a non-resident Indian (NRI), person of India origin (PIO) or a foreign citizen (with or without an OCI) and not a citizen of Pakistan & Bangladesh, then you are eligible to apply for a "Permanent Account Number" from outside India, and can proceed with following steps below.
  2. Download form 49A (if you are a NRI) or form 49AA (if you are a foreign and UK citizen) from our website or directly from the Income Tax Department of India's official website.
  3. The forms shall ask for your personal information, such as your complete name, birth date, address, contact information, etc. In case you have any confusion filling out your form correctly, you may seek assistance from our adviser.
  4. The fourth step would be to attach all your relevant documents, such as identification, proof of address, and a recent photograph.
  5. Pay the necessary fee online using a UK debit or credit card in pound sterling (£/GBP) or in person (if you are in India).
  6. Submit all of your necessary supporting documents, like proof of identity (POI) and proof of address (POA), along with your correctly filled form.
  7. The government department then processes your form and verifies the accompanying documents. If they find no errors, then they allot you a PAN number in the form of an e-PAN that is sent to your email in about 2-3 days, followed by the actual printed PAN card delivery in 3 weeks time via India Post to your Indian or UK address specified in the application.

How can I get PAN card from outside India?

To get a PAN card from outside India, simply go ahead and download the application form depending on your passport status and category from the Income Tax Department or our website right here. 

For example, if you are an Indian passport holder (NRI), then kindly use the form 49aa, and for foreign nationals (including OCI card holders), use the form 49aa. And once you have your appropriate form, start by filling it out correctly with your personal information, attach the required documents, pay the fee online, and submit the form to an authorized PAN card service agent in the UK or any center in India. 

In case you have questions or trouble filling the forms, you may use a registered agent or service provider to assist with the application process. Once approved, the PAN card will be sent to the Indian or foreign address you provided in the application form. 

How many days does it take to get physical card? 

The time it takes to receive an e-PAN and a physical PAN card shipped overseas varies based on numerous factors, including the recipient's location and the postal service's effectiveness. However, based on our experience, it would be fair to say that the e-PAN can take up to 2–3 days to arrive at your email and around 15–30 business days to arrive via postal mail at an overseas address after the application is completed and processed. 

Can I get my PAN card in 2 days?

The simple answer is no. You probably will get your ePAN (electronic version) at the email address provided in your application; however, the actual hard copy cannot be delivered within 2 days. The reason for this is that the income tax department takes time to verify all of your supporting documents, check your application for accuracy, and finally print and send the card via India Post. All these factors increase the delivery time. As a result, it is correct to estimate that the actual card will arrive in the mail at the address specified in your application form within 15-30 days.

  4. Once logged in, go to the "Register New PAN" section and choose the form you wish to fill out, such as Form 49A for Indian nationals and NRIs or Form 49AA for foreign nationals holding international passports (including OCI).
  5. Fill in all sections with your personal information, such as your name, date of birth, gender, address, and contact information.
  6. Upload the relevant papers in the required format, such as proof of identification and proof of address.
  7. Check that all of the information you've provided is correct and complete.
