Plan Your Tour  |  Before you Go  |  Passport & Visa Information
There are few things you need to take care of before coming to India


Foreign travelers to India must always have a valid passport with them. If your passport is lost or stolen, you should immediately contact the embassy or consulate of your country.


The tourist visa is normally given for six months. The 15-day single / double entry visa is issued only to bonfire transit passengers. Tourist groups of not less than four people travelling under auspices of a recognized travel agency may be considered for a collective tourist visa.

A visa is given for a period for which the passport is valid. So if the validity of the passport runs out before the visa expires, the visa is not issued. The visa is valid for 180 days from the date of its issue and not from the date of entry into India, unless specified otherwise.

Visa Extension

The 180-day tourist visa is supposedly non-extendable but can be extended for another 15 days in case of emergencies, A valid onward ticket must, however, be produced as proof of the intention to depart India's shores. The 15-day extension on the 6- month visa is issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, New Delhi, the local state Government and the Foreigner's Regional Registration Office (FRRO) office is open on weekdays, 9.30 am to 1.30 pm and 2 pm to 4 pm.
