Tips for Travellers to India
Submitted by M20686
Do I need a passport to travel to India? You must be in possession of a valid passport, which will not expire for at least six months after your journey is due to end. It should have to clear pages for entry and exit ... view more stamps as well as your visa. A wise precaution is to carry a photocopy of your passport kept separately, extremely useful in the event of loss or theft.

Do I need a visa to travel to India? All visitors to India require a visa that must be obtained from an Indian High Commission or Consulate. For postal applications passports should be sent by registered post and include a registered post paid return addressed envelope. Applications should be on the official visa form available from a local travel agent. Alternatively in some countries the form can be downloaded from the Embassies’ official WEBSITE. All applications should include 3 passport-sized photographs. Your local travel agent or nearest Embassy will be able to inform you of the latest application fee. Your passport must also be valid for 6 months from your date of arrival in India.

Do I need travel insurance as well? While traveling in India it is important that you obtain good personal travel insurance from an insurance agent in your country. You should carry your insurance policy with you at all time, preferably in your relevant details in a separate place, with your passport photocopy.

What cultural considerations should one take care of while touring in India? We ask you as guests in this amazing country to respond to these sometimes-bizarre differences with sensitivity and respect. We do request you to dress conservatively - both men and women should wear clothing that covers knees and shoulders (when visiting mosques and temples). Try to avoid any public display of affection. When entering mosques, temples and places of religious worship or private homes - please remove your shoes.
