Registration of foreign delegates

Delegates from Afghanistan and Pakistan

  • Delegates from Pakistan must register at their closest Police Station with 24 hours of arrival and before departure.
  • All Afghan nationals are required to register with the FRRO/FRO  concerned within 14 days of arrival except those Afghan nationals who enter India on a visa valid  for 30 days or less provided the Afghan national concerned gives his/her local address in India to the Indian Mission/FRRO/FRO. Afghan nationals who are issued visas with ' Exemption from police reporting' are exempt from Police reporting as well as Exit permission provided they leave within the Visa validity period.

Delegates must present their passport with the valid stamped Visa, return and confirmed air tickets, an invitation letter from the organizer, the confirmation of the hotel where they are staying and, four passport size photographs. Moreover, delegates must mention all the places that they will be visiting (where applicable) when applying for their Visa so that the appropriate permission is granted to visit those places.

Delegates from other countries

Foreign delegates from other countries who are not on a long term visa (more than 180 days on a Student Visa, Medical Visa, Research Visa and Employment Visa) are NOT required to get themselves registered, even if they have entered India on a long term visa, provided their continuous stay in India does not exceed 180 days. If the intention is to stay in India for more than 180 days, then registration is required well before the expiry of 180 days from the date of arrival with the FRRO/FRO concerned.

All delegates are advised to check if their visas have any special requirements for registration on arrival in India stamped before they depart from home.
