๐Ÿ›ฌ fmtgpb just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ Hyderabad, #india
We've all heard that INDIA is opening to Regular tourists visas (not charter flights) in November. You can apply for your tourist evisa now.... HOWEVER LOOK OUT- they are only issuing THIRTY DAY tourist evisas... there is NO option to get the old 1 year or 5 year visas, and they have invalidated all previous tourist evisas. Sure, that's fine for 95% of the tourists, but if you're a DN, its a PITA. Go to the indian evisa site yourself to check it out... I just pounded my application in despite all that. Mark me as "annoyed"
any reason to jump this early? Was thinking about india this winter now that its opening up. Will there be a backlog of applicants that prevent me from getting one?
About 3 months ago it was authorized that the first 500,000 tourist visas (when it opens back up) to be AT NO COST to encourage tourism. My application went in without any payment and the e-receipt says "0". The e-visa 30 day period must be used within 120 days of issue. As far as backlog goes, who knows... only 30 days is a real crimp in my plans, tho, and more flights in a shorter time makes it less economical for the DN. Good luck, man!
Update Got my India eVisa in 12 hours. It states cost is ZERO on the visa. must be used 120 days from issuing date but only good for 30 days, single entry.
thanks fo the info!
No vaccine requirements for the tourist e-visa or entering the country?
Nothing as far as medical records was uploaded during my application 3 days ago, but as I recall there is a health APP you have to download from the Indian government to finally get off the plane and into the country. I expect you'll need a PCR-RT test and a double vaccine certificate, but I havent done it yet as I wont be traveling for another 30 days.
Stated on issued visa "e-Visa is non-extendable, non-convertible & not valid for visiting Protected/Restricted and Cantonment Areas."
ernewqqpcdhoki where did you read that about the app and certificate?
The app used in India is:Aarogya Setu

See the app at the Google Play Store:ย />
It is also available from Apple atย

zzsujyys Will send a detailed message from. Desktop :D
Okie appreciate it jyllfof thanks ! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

For less crowded beaches and more affordable places, look at south goa bogmalo, majorda, colva.
You won't have much happening in these places.

For popular beaches and slightly expensive places look near north goa baga, anjuna. I stayed at ashwem beach.

If you want to stay within the city and have access to north and south goa (kind of like mid point), party places and lot of popular swiggy options.. look at Miramar area.
lxqfckqh nomadgao is perfect if you need internet and some community. The other places nrjhagb mentioned are good too, but not sure about good reliable internet there
nice, do you work in goa or working remotely edydoyc
cddvqiut working remotely. Have started freelancing ๐Ÿ˜Š
nice, did a lot of that in the last 5-6 years, always fun freelancing/consulting
Hi folks, where are you travelling to?
Hello I'm interested in traveling to india, and I need visa, does anyone know any agency which I can pay to make sure everything will be done correctly
You can get a tourist visa FREE online at the official India e-visa webpage. They are only issuing 30 day tourist visas at this point (BUMMER). Business visas are another story altogether. Here is the website
I've gotten FOUR evisas off this site in the last 5 years. Its easy to do and the response is generally less than 24 hours... last one was 11 hours.

International scheduled commercial flights to and from India will resume December 15 onward after a 21-month ban, an order from the Ministry of Civil Aviation said Friday. Article in New Indian Express.
"the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Sunday issued new guidelines for international travellers arriving in India, effective December 1.The guidelines require passengers to submit the self-declaration form on the online Air Suvidha Portal before the scheduled travel and to submit the last 14 days travel details.
The guidelines also mandated the uploading of negative RT-PCR test reports on the Air Suvidha portal before the journey. The test should have been conducted within 72 hours prior to undertaking the journey." per Gulf News 29NOV2021

ntfjjogyfkyzu are you in North or South Goa?
Came to Jamshedpur today, I was in North Goa.
I finally did India as the world locked down, if I had a time machine I would of went much early after Asia in my first years.
Yeah, me too... I was there til end of Jan 2020. I note that all the restrictions specify passenger travel bans imposed by the air transport authorities, and nobody mentions travel by sea. There are traditionally ferries from Sri Lanka to Chennai. I wonder if that is a loophole. Hmmm...
We left India April 2020 and were there during the lockdown.
Wow, that's an experience that'll stay with you. Where were you? I was in Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata & Varanasi during that particular January trip.
We were in Kochi, it was quite an experience. The lockdown happened pretty much overnight and it caught me off guard and it didn't really hit me until I opened my phone and realized there was no uber. So we were pretty much stuck in our airBNB the entire time ordering in. We ended up getting on the last repatriation flight to Canada out of Bengaluru, what should of been a 8-10 hour bus ride turned into 20. By the time we got back to Toronto it was simultaneously the most exhausted and most relieved I have ever been in my life.
jczccyejfvtooungm that was one hell of a lockdown experience, I'd bet. It was so sudden even for us living at home in India; can't imagine what it would've been like for you!
Ya and right before they did that thing where they asked everyone to stay home and then hold candles for the workers etc.. and that was a cool experience but in hindsight I realize it was done on purpose to avoid mass hysteria instead of giving a longer term notice.
Was the candles before or after? I think it was after :thinking_face:
There was candles, then bang your plates and then they ran out of options. ๐Ÿ˜‚
It was definitely a cool experience though!
Oh it was after.
The Janata curfew was on the March 22nd then on March 24th with 4 hour notice, the first 3 week lockdown was announced.
That whole time blended together.
It's interesting... my last stop in India was Kolkata for a week, late January 2020. A great city. I noticed all the people on the street who were spitting and I said to my friend "You know, I hear there's this virus thing going on in China, if it ever gets here they're gonna have to stop that spitting." She just looked at me and said " Good luck with that. People aren't going to change."
The thing I kick myself about is that I was at a grocery story on the 23rd, and I have no idea why, but I had the strongest feeling I needed to buy more stuff and I never felt that way before but I dismissed it because I thought I was just being paranoid. So I bought a few extra things but literally that night the lockdown was announced because of that I will never dismiss that feeling again.
I was literally pacing around the grocery store asking myself why I felt this way and debating if I should load up on stuff.
I was on the same mood but i did end up buying a lot
i have not thought of those days (march 15 to 30, 2020) for a long time until i read your messages. feels like so long ago
I am coming to India this coming 20th December. Will stay around 3 weeks at Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
Any nomads around those place?
This is not applicable for travel bubble right?
Let the rest of us know how the border crossing goes. As far as I know its still closed for most people, but if you can get thru, please post it. Good luck, man!
Not as far as I can see. You'd have to be an Indian national. See the details at
I am from Bangladesh. We are under travel bubble so hopefully would be able to go. I got my via for 1 month period and it's only valid for air travel.
I will share my updates as I go.
I looked into it. Country under air bubble would be able to travel.
Hey everyone!

Planning a month or so in Bangalore starting mid Jan. Anyone else plan to be in the area around there? Would love to meet up!

Also, any short stay recommendations I should look into around the Indiranagar/Koramangala area? Airbnb is slim pickings.
