With its tapestry of awing charms, incredible natural and man made grandeur displayed in its modern cities and colonial towns – India tops the itineraries of every avid traveller across the globe. However, arranging cheap tickets, passports and visa, without proper understanding can turn out to be a fruitless activity. Here are some entry tips for those buying cheap flights’ tickets to bask in the glory of this enigmatic nation.

Passports

It is essential for Britons to ensure they have a valid passport before buying airlines tickets to India. Passport should be valid for a minimum period of 180 days from the arrival date in India.

Visas

British tourists need to obtain a valid visa before buying air tickets to India. Those without valid visas will be denied entry in the country. Those looking for further details on visas can contact VSF Global.

Long term multiple entry visas

Britons buying tickets to India on long term multiple entry visas have to get themselves registered at a Foreigners Regional Registration Office within 14 days of arrival.

Visa Stamping Policy

Tourists departing from India generally receive a departure stamp in their passports indicating a prohibition to their re-entry for two months, despite the length of their stay prior to departure. However, those buying cheap airline tickets and having plans to visit neighbouring nations may get exempted from the same. Also, tourists buying air tickets to India before the completion of two month prohibition period need to contact the Indian High Commission or Consulate in the UK to present their case for re-entry.

The immigration authorities at all Indian Immigration Check Posts can authorize two or three entries, on the basis of tourist’s itinerary and documentation (ticket bookings) affirming the need for tourism related travel to neighbouring countries. Tourists looking for further details on the issue can check out FAQs published by the MHA.

Transit Visas

Tourists contemplating transit flights through India should obtain a transit visa. Transit visas are valid for single or double journey, within 15 days, effective from the date of issue. Transit visas authorize direct transits for maximum of three days. Those looking for more than three days transit stay should obtain a valid visa.

Visas for applicants of Pakistani origin and Pakistan nationals

Those with dual nationalities and of Pakistan origin should apply for an Indian visa on their Pakistan passport. Tourists who have renounced their Pakistani nationality or cancelled their Pakistani passport must submit documentary proof stating the same.

The processing time for visa applications received from Pakistani origin individuals is around 7-8 weeks and at times more. The processing time for visa applications of Pakistani nationals or those holding dual nationality is significantly longer.

Those looking for updated details can check the website of the Indian High Commission in London.
