PAN for Foreign Citizens

PAN is an important document for foreign citizens also, who wish to undertake business in India or wish to invest in India. Procedure to obtain PAN is same as applicable for Indian citizens. However, the application is required to be filled using Form 49AA meant for foreign citizens and submitted at any of the authorised PAN Service Centre through the authorised representative in India. List of documents applicable for foreign citizens are given below:

Individuals and HUF (Hindu Undivided Family)

Documents accepted as Proof of Identity

Copy of passport, or Voter’s ID card
Copy of Person of Indian Origin (PIO) card issued by Government of India,
Copy of Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) card issued by Government of India,
Copy of other national or citizenship Identification Number or Taxpayer Identification Number duly attested by ‘Apostille’ (in respect of countries which are signatories to the Hague Convention of 1961) or by the Indian Embassy or High Commission or Consulate in the country where the applicant is located or authorised officials of overseas branches of Scheduled Banks registered in India (in prescribed format) .
Documents accepted as Proof of Address

Proof of Identity documents mentioned above bearing address of the applicant or
Copy of Bank account statement in the country of residence, or
Copy of Nonresident External (NRE) bank account statement in India, or
Copy of Certificate of Residence in India or Residential permit issued by the State Police Authorities, or
Copy of Registration certificate issued by the Foreigner’s Registration Office showing Indian address, or
Copy of Visa granted & Copy of appointment letter or contract from Indian Company & Certificate (in original) of Indian address issued by the employer.
For other than Individuals and HUF (Including those having no office of their own in India)

Documents accepted as Proof of Identity & Proof of Address

Copy of Certificate of Registration issued in the country where the applicant is located, duly attested by ‘Apostille’ (in respect of the countries which are signatories to the Hague Convention of 1961) or by the Indian Embassy or High Commission or Consulate in the country where the applicant is located or authorised officials of overseas branches of Scheduled Banks registered in India (in prescribed format) ; or
Copy of registration certificate issued in India or of approval granted to set up office in India by Indian Authorities.

At present, PAN Service Centres are located in India only. However, foreign citizens may find online mode of application more convenient when the clunky web user interface is working. The online facility allows payment of fees using credit card option for foreign citizens (but only if they have India based credit card as international credit cards are not always accepted by the third party fee collectors.) Unlike most countries, India charges a fee to issue a TIN (PAN ID). The fees charges are ?107 if the PAN card is to be received in India and ?989 if the PAN Card is to be received at a foreign location. Note that online application only eliminates data entry errors. One still needs to mail the application with photographs to India based centres. The application requires two photographs. One on the top right requires signature within the box below it. The other one on the top left requires signature across the photograph (such that part of signature is on the photograph and part on the form). There is anywhere from 2 to 20 days lag between your documents reaching the centre and the initial processing/verification which only takes a day. The actual issue of PAN number by the tax department is within 48 hours. The actual PAN card is sent to the overseas address by the registered/certified mail and may take additional 2 weeks after the issue of the PAN number which is initially conveyed by email.
