Visiting India - Foreign Nationals

VISA is required for entering India's National Capital - New Delhi for people coming from most countries. Visiting delegates must contact nearest Embassy or Consulate of India. As Indian law requires hotels and guest houses to verify your visa before check-in, it is highly recommended that you make copies of your passport details and Indian visa in case your passport is lost or stolen. You should carry copies in a separate place to your passport and leave a copy with someone at home.


It is strongly recommend that you take out comprehensive travel insurance that will cover any overseas medical costs, including medical evacuation, before you depart. Confirm that your insurance covers you for the whole time you'll be away and check what circumstances and activities are not included in your policy. Remember, regardless of how healthy and fit you are, if you can't afford travel insurance, you can't afford to travel.

Travel and Transportation Advisory

By Air:

Located to the west of the city of New Delhi is the Indira Gandhi International Airport, which now is the busiest airport in South Asia. There are now two terminals T3 and T1D, which are eight kilometers apart. So budget at least 30 minutes to get to T1D if you have to catch a connecting flight within India.

You can either take the free shuttle from the new international terminal, nicknamed T3, near Pillar 9 or take a pre paid taxi. Terminal 3 (T3), the brand new international terminal built in 2011, is equipped with all the amenities an international traveler needs - a huge variety of duty-free shopping that is available to inbound travelers as well as to outbound, currency exchanges offering reasonably good rates, Airtel sim cards in case you want to turn your unlocked overseas cell phone into an Indian cell phone while in India, little rooms for jet lag, and loads of restaurants catering to all tastes.

Currently, international visitors will arrive at the Delhi International T3. This terminal also has a domestic wing catering to flights inside India. In case you have a direct flight to catch within India post your arrival, you can transfer immediately from International Arrivals to Domestic departures. However only the following domestic airlines operate from T3: Kingfisher, Jet Airways, Jet Konnect, Indian Airlines and Air India. However, this will not work if your domestic flight within India is with a low cost carrier such as Indigo, Spice Jet and Go Air. All these airlines operate from the old terminal T1D. Getting from T3 to T1D will take around 30-40 mins depending on the traffic situation.

Note: Indigo and Spice Jet are primarily domestic operators running some international routes. So in case you have a Indigo international flight, you will have to take it from T3 and in case you have a Indigo domestic flight, you will have to take it from T1D. The basic logic being that T1D does not support any international traffic and has no immigration facilities.

By Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) services

Metro now connects the airport to the heart of the city. Once you arrive at a metro station in the city, you can hail a cab to wherever you need to go. If you are carrying no more than a suitcase and a handbag, the metro is a smart way to get to the city for USD 50 cents or less. From the station, a 3-wheeler to anywhere within 2 or 3 kilometers is probably less than Rs. 100 (about USD 2.25).
