      Visa and emergency passport advice for Brit travelling on an ETD

      India Yesterday

      Visa from Indian Embassy in HCMC
      by HelenR31

      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?

      Connection between Delhi T3 and T1D

      Delhi Oct 5, 2016 at 6:10 PM

      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! :)

      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.

      India Oct 11, 2016 at 11:46 PM

      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???

      Hampi Sep 23, 2016 at 8:35 AM

      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

    • Delhi 30 days or more.

      Delhi Oct 9, 2016 at 12:00 AM

      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.

      How Long To Stay

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Apr 8, 2014 at 7:01 AM

      I will be stopping over at least one night in October to see the camel fair in Pushkar. I will be coming from Agra or maybe somewhere in between (?). I see the travel distance is about 6 hours from Agra so would like to find somewhere to see on the way to Pushkar, if there is anywhere that is ?

      So arriving late afternoon I guess and staying one or two nights? I read there is not much to see here besides the start of the camel fair and a walk around the lake. I am thinking if I arrive late afternoon from either Agra or ?? then a full day in Pushkar, one more evening and then move on to Jodhpur.

      Does that sound sensible?

      Cna not find the hotel

      by Terje1966 Online Now Jun 10, 2010 at 1:10 PM


      I was in Pushkar in 2005 and slept in a wery nice hotel. Now I cant seem to find
      it and i have forgotten the name.
      Just after we entered Pushkar from Ajmer we took a sharp turn to the left. Then we followed a narrow road almost to the end(a few hundered meters and there was the hotel on the right side of the road. The hotel had 3 floors (I think) and an open air restaurant(not on roof)in the end that turned away from town. The small pool was also on that side. From this restaurant you had a perfect view of the mountains and temples in the hills and in the backyard close to the hotel there was a large garden growing wegetables.
      Can anyone help me with this hotel name ?
      And by the way. I recommend it!

      We are taking a tour of Rajasthan through Indus Travels in Canada and will stay a night in Pushkar near the end of the camel fair. All the advance information indicated we would be staying in a hotel but now we are told we will stay in a tent, and so far they have not been able to tell us at which tent camp. While the tents sound fine for lodging, I am concerned about security of luggage, etc. in a town of 14,000 invaded by 200,000 during the fair. I would appreciate any information/insight anyone could provide. We are seniors. Thanks.
