Visa from Indian Embassy in HCMC
21 minutes ago
Hi there, I'm a UK citizen and I had my passport and wallet stolen in HCMC. I've now got an emergency passport and am in the process of getting all the visas I need for my onward journey.
However I'm a bit confused... My flight back to the UK involves a one and a half hour stop over in Delhi to change planes. On the UK gov site it says that people travelling on an ETD ( emergency passport) need a visa and TWO ETD's - one to enter Delhi and one to leave Delhi. I'm having trouble finding out if this is true as I've had no reply to my emails and can't get through on the phone to the Indian Embassy. Can anyone help?
I booked 1 room for 3 people in goa from 26th Dec 2016 to 1st Jan 2017.

Pay the rent in sharing basis when you checkin.
Can I know how far is Terminal 1D from Terminal 3 of Delhi Airport and the travelling time by taxi? I have just bought return ticket to Delhi from Hyderabad. Arrive in Delhi Airport T3 at 6.15 pm, leaving Delhi Airport T1D at 8.25 pm. Is there enough time to transit to Terminal 1D from T3?
We are traveling in a tour group in India 11/11/2016 to 17/11/2016. Tour group company wanted our Visas asap so applied on line and all went perfectly smooth. Visas were granted, however it states that we can arrive between 8/10/2016 (date of the application) and 11/11/2016 (date of our arrival by plane, if the plane arrives on time and is not delayed to the next day or so). This did not seem right so emailed them only to be told the ETA date could not be changed.
We think someone has made a mistake with our dates but are having trouble sorting it out!
Has anyone else experienced this with the dates on their application???

Is it safe to start from Pathankot for McLeodgunj late in the evening? I'm taking Himgiri Express, which often reaches Pathankot very late.
Is there a bus timetable anywhere in the web??? I need to go from Khajuraho to Mahoba to take a night train to Varanasi, and can't find information.
Hi guys, I'm in the very early stages of planning for a month or so I would like to spend in India. For now I've done the basic research on Delhi, Agra and Varanasi which is what many people are able to do in around 4-5 days. I'd like to take my time on this trip so I'll probably spend 3-5 days at each of these places which leaves me with plenty of time to spare. I would like to know if anyone can recommend any other places nearby or in between that I might want to include.
Right now I'm only interested in this part of India, I might go as far as Kolkata but right now I can't be sure.
I'm still a little confused about the train situation, if I really need to book in advance or if I can get tickets on the ground once I'm there on the day, or a few days before I travel. Having to book in advance makes it difficult for me since I prefer not to have a set number of days at any one place in case I decide to spend more time somewhere else.
Hi, I have a question regarding connections between T3 and T1D. Can anyone please give me an idea of how to go from T3 arrivals to T1D departure. I will be arriving in T3 at night (around 11.30 PM) and have a connecting flight from T1D (around 5 AM). I heard that there is a connecting shuttle service between the two terminals. Can someone please advise where to get it from, and whether the journey can be done from outside the airport premises using a private taxi. Never thought I will be asking a question on this forum regarding my home country, but seems like things have changed a lot since the last time I travelled through Delhi domestic airport! :)

What can i see i Bangalore for 1.5 days? Air India early arrives in Bangalore on 8 December at 1 pm plus. I will fly to Hyderabad on 9 December after 4 pm.
I want a plan a trip to Goa with my friends, and require some help with planning for the whole trip.
We are all from Delhi, and we need all kinds of details given on how to plan a trip to Goa from traveling from Delhi to sightseeing in Goa and coming back home.
We are not too sure on how many days we should stay in Goa as well, so all the information provided such as places to see and things to do will allow us to find out what the duration of our holiday would be.
Did anyone ever have this problem? I will land in India on the 16th of December and flying out 15th January at 1:50am. Would this be counted as 31 days? Since the visa clearly indicates as 30 days or does the 30 day count once you check in [ so I would do so before midnight] Any help would be great as I am worried they wont approve my application of the E Visa.
We will be in Jaipur in December and are having a hard time deciding between visiting Elephant Joy or Elephantastic. Any help or advice is appreciated!!!

As part of an extensive first time trip to India we are considering adding Hampi to our itinerary We would arrive around 6th or 8th Nov an I am concerned about transport from Goa Our original plan was to take an overnight bus from Goa run by Paulo Travels or taking a train the Howrah Express (does not run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays). We would take a train Vasco De Gama station (Goa at 7:20 AM in Goa and reach Hospet (closest station to Hampi 20kms away) at 2PM Are there other train options ? It was suggested to definitely take an overnight bus back to Goa where we intend to go to Kerala The reason it was suggested to take the bus over the trains is the trains originate from Kolkata (36 hours away from Hospet) so they often late and at times can be very dirty too. However I have checked reviews of Paulo Travel and they are very bad We are in our sixties and there is a limit to what discomfort we can take Is there any other private/public overnight bus service to Hampi from Goa I can't find anything on the internet but thought someone living there or having recently gone there might know of a service In some other post I seen a reference to an overnight train but can't find any details Any adice on alternative trains would be appreciated .If we get suitable transport does anyone know where the nearest hospital is located I carry an EPI pen because of severe allergic reaction to something which they have been medically unable to identify In the extremely unlikely event of having to use it my doctor has said I would need to attend a hospital Hampi sounds like a place that we would love so it would be great if we could work out the logistics I have got so much help from Virtual Tourist forums in the past that I really hope that we could find the best logistical solution Thanks in advance for any help and advice you can give
Hi- I went to Sri Lanka recently and I went to a Bollywood club full of Mumbai tourists. It was amazing.
Can someone tell me the names of clubs where the women perform on the floor dancing then the men are allowed to go up and dance once they are done in between sets.
Really really nice to meet a woman that way instead of G Road.

Hi, Has anyone been to the Taj Mahal on the 25th of December? I am wondering how busy it would be on this day.
I plan a 30 days trip to India starting end of Jan. 2017. My intention is to split it about evenly btw. the south and the north (expanded "golden triangle"). I am looking for a local trustworthy and reliable operator to help us. Our main concern is to arrange the transportation from place to place (cars+drivers, domestic flights; trains/fast trains/night trains etc.). I had already received several propositions, but could not find whether the proposing companies are reliable.
Any assistance in this subject will be greatly appreciated.
We are planning a short trip to Delhi. We would be doing the local sightseeing to places like lotus temple, Red Fort, Qutub Minar, OLd Fort, Humayun's tomb. We are looking to book a tempo traveller for our local sightseeing. Is the tempo traveler comfortable, as i am booking for the first time. Read the reviews of http://tempo-traveller.com is their service good. We would also go to shimla,kullu, Manali from Delhi can anybody suggest a good itinerary for that.
We are a couple from Ireland in our sixties We are going to India for a long trip in October .This will be our first time to India We will spend a very busy 25 days touring ,going to Shimla and touring Rajasthan That part of the trip will be demanding with a lot of traveling We fly into Goa airport on the 29th Oct intending to spend 8 or 9 days in the Goa area We might stay for a day or so in Panjim's Fontainhas area but this is not high on our priority list I am aware that Diwali is on the 30th so not sure how that will impact in terms of how busy it will be . I have a done a lot of research on this site but am finding it difficult to decide where we should base ourselves We need a place ,reasonably near to a beach ,with good bars ,nice restaurants ,some entertainment, live music, a laid back atmosphere , We do not like places that have loud intrusive piped/disco music or an area which is overrun by any particular nationality I have looked at Canolim but am concerned that it may be very early in the season I really would appreciate would appreciate any help you can give and recommendation for good centrally located budget accommodation
