Please note the visa is valid beginning on the day it is issued. (Example: a 6 Month visa issued on January 1 would be valid until June 30.) Once you have received your passport, it is your responsibility to immediately verify that the visa you require for your trip has been obtained, that the visa for your intended visit is valid for the dates of your visit, and that your passport is valid for at least six (6) months beyond the completion of your trip.
If your plans change and you will be departing after the validity of your visa has passed, you will need a new visa. Please ensure that the visa you are requesting will meet the needs of your travels.
If you stay will exceed 180 days, registration with the Foreign Registration Office is required. This should be done within 14 days of arrival in India, at the nearest Foreign Registration Office to your arrival point. Details on what is required to be presented to the Foreign Registration Office can be found here
