      Visa and emergency passport advice for Brit travelling on an ETD

      India Oct 20, 2016 at 10:58 PM

      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?

      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???

    • 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.

      I went to this shop sea rock in Varkala beach which is near to coffee temple café and close to Helipad in Varkala Trivandrum district -695141 Kerala state. In India I have known that every product is selled in M.R.P(Maximum Retail Price) But here the price of these product are been manipulated by their own price by putting a barcode label over it and they are charging double than the actual price which is really unfair and when I asked about it they started to abuse me. They said buy if you want we didn’t call you .This is how it works They are charging 100 to 150 rupees more than the actual price . Even they charge 5Rs extra for water, Kwalityicecream they charge 50Rs when the actual price is 30Rs.all food items they are charge 100Rs to 150Rs extra for Cashew, Dates, pista etc………. The cosmetic are also priced double than the actual price

      I am an Indian maybe these shops are open for foreign customers who come for short period.But still it is against the law.
