VISA / Custom Laws

A valid Visa in addition to a valid passport is necessary for travelling to India. Visas can be procured from the Indian Embassies or Indian High Commissions abroad. A passport valid for a minimum of six months beyond the date of scheduled departure from India is required for applying for visa. While applying for a visa the applicant has to submit proof of long-term (at least three years)/permanent residence in his or her native country.

Custom Rules For India
You are required to make an oral declaration of baggage and foreign currency in your possession. During your flight to India, you will be provided with a Disembarkation Card which you will be required to fill out and hand over to the Immigration Counter on arrival. Clearly mention the quantity and nature of goods you are carrying.

Two channels are provided while exiting the airport - the green channel is for passengers travelling without dutiable articles or unaccompanied baggage, while the red channel is for the passengers with dutiable articles or unaccompanied baggage or high-value articles (to be entered on the Tourist Baggage Re-Export Form) – make sure you comply with them.

Tourist Baggage Re-Export Form
Tourists carrying dutiable articles, unaccompanied baggage or high-value articles are required to list the articles in the Tourist Baggage Re-Export Form (TBRE). All these articles have to be re-exported on departure and a failure to re-export items listed in the TBRE form will invite a payable duty.

There is no limit to the amount of foreign exchange one can carry, however, if the total value of the foreign exchange in the form of currency notes, bank notes or travellers cheques brought in exceeds USD 10,000/- or its equivalent, and/or the value of foreign currency exceeds USD 5,000/- or its equivalent, it should be declared to the Customs Authorities at the airport, in the Currency Declaration Form (CDF), on arrival in India. This is for the interest of the traveller as this will enable them to exchange the currency brought in and also to take the remaining currency back home on departure. It is highly advised to convert any money in the form of travellers' cheques, drafts, bills, cheques, etc., in convertible currencies, into Indian currency to be exchanged only through authorized money-changers and banks.

Custom Duties
Duty-free items allowed include personal items (excluding jewellery) such as clothes - provided they are not commercial merchandise, cameras, binoculars, a portable musical instrument, a radio or portable tape recorder, a tent and camping equipment, fishing rod, a pair of skis, two tennis rackets, 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars, 1 litre each of wine and spirit, and gift items not exceeding a value of Rs. 4,000. Articles that exceed the duty-free allowance and articles imported as unaccompanied baggage can be cleared on payment of duty at the rate of 61.2% ad valorem. For items in gold and silver, separate duty rates have been fixed. All expensive equipment needs to be declared.
