Travel advice for this country


Travel Summary

  • We advise against all travel to, or through rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir other than Ladakh; all travel in the immediate vicinity of the border with Pakistan (Northern and Western India), other than at the international border crossing at Wagah; and all travel in the Manipur and Tripura (East and North East India). See the specific Local Travel section of this advice for more details.


  • We advise against all but essential travel to Srinagar (Northern India) and Imphal (East and North East India). If you do travel to these areas then you should only do so by air. See the specific Local Travel section of this advice for more details. 


  • There is a high threat of terrorism throughout India.  Attacks have targeted public places, including places of worship.  They could also target places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers.  Since July 2006, there have been a number of terrorist attacks in major cities including Mumbai, New Delhi and Hyderabad.  See the Terrorism/Security and Local Travel sections of this advice for more details.


  • Over 600,000 British tourists visit India every year (source: Department of Tourism, India).  Most of these visits are trouble-free.  The main types of incident for which British nationals required consular assistance in India in 2007 were for: replacing lost and stolen passports (over 320 cases); deaths, mainly from natural causes (over 140 cases); and arrests, mainly for drugs offences (45 cases). Penalties for trafficking, dealing and using illegal drugs are severe.


  • You should keep a photocopy of your passport, Indian visa and flight ticket separate from the originals when travelling. This will save you much inconvenience and time if your documents are lost or stolen.


  • We strongly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling.  You should check any exclusions, and that your policy covers you for all the activities you want to undertake.  See the General (Insurance) section of this advice and Travel Insurance for more details.

Safety and security

Terrorism/Security

There is a high threat from terrorism throughout India.
 
You should exercise particular caution when in the vicinity of key government installations and tourist sites, attending public events (including religious events), and in public places including hotels, airports, shopping malls, and on public transport.
 
Since July 2006 there have been terrorist attacks in major cities including Mumbai, New Delhi and Hyderabad. These attacks have included:
 
  • On 13 May there were a series of bomb blasts in Jaipur, western India. Latest reports indicate that there are approximately 60 fatalities and 200 casualties.
  • On 23 November 2007, there were a series of explosions on local courts in Faizabad, Varanasi and Lucknow resulting in 13 fatalities and many more injuries.
  • On 25 August 2007, at least 40 people were killed and 56 injured when two bombs exploded in Hyderabad.
  • On 19 February 2007, explosions occurred on the Samjhauta Express train travelling from Delhi to Lahore.  66 people died and over 50 were injured.
  • On 11 July 2006, there were a series of explosions on commuter trains in western Mumbai. Over 180 people died and many hundreds were injured.
 
In some areas there are terrorist incidents virtually on a daily basis.  The areas most affected are Jammu and Kashmir (excluding Ladakh) and the north east.  A 30-year insurgency campaign by an ultra nationalist group in Assam continues with frequen bombings and random killings. Violent extremist groups are also active in the rural areas of Bihar, Jharkland, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Orissa.
 
Further details on these attacks are available in the Local Travel section of this advice.
 
See Terrorism Abroad for more details.

Crime

Beware of the risk of street crime and take personal security measures including:
 
Taking particular care to safeguard your passport and credit/ATM cards, particularly when travelling by bus and train.  There has been an increase in handbag snatching in Delhi.
  • A photocopy of your passport, Indian visa and flight ticket should be kept separately from the originals when travelling.
  • Be aware of what you are eating and drinking.  There have been reports of travellers being drugged and robbed on trains.
  • Be wary of confidence tricksters, particularly in Agra and Jaipur.  They promise a substantial cash reward for delivery of jewellery abroad but only in return for an initial deposit.  The jewellery is invariably worthless and the deposit, often amounting to thousands of pounds, is lost.
  • Avoid walking alone in isolated spots in the popular tourist areas, particularly after dark.  There have been incidents of sexual offences against women in Delhi and Goa and in 2008 our Consular staff have been made aware of a number of British nationals who have been the victim of serious sexual offences.  Female travellers are advised to observe and respect local dress and customs and to take particular care.

For more general information see Victims of Crime Abroad.

Political Situation

India Country Profile.

When local or national elections are taking place, there can be violence either at political rallies or at the polls.  It is a good idea to check whether elections are taking place in the area you are visiting, and avoid political rallies.  Details can be found on the Election Commission of India website – http://www.eci.gov.in

Local TraveL

Jammu & Kashmir

We advise against all travel to or through rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir (other than Ladakh), and all but essential travel to Srinagar. If you intend to travel to Srinagar then you should only travel there by air. There continues to be a high level of conflict and terrorist violence in Kashmir, including car bombs, grenade attacks, bombs on roads and shootings.  In May – June 2006, a series of attacks on tourist buses in and around Srinagar killed six tourists and injured over 30 others. A hotel (in Pahalgam) was the target of an attack in June 2004.

There is a danger of landmines in some border areas.  There is also a risk of kidnapping.  Militants took five foreign nationals hostage, including two Britons, in July 1995: one is known to have been murdered and the others are believed dead.  You should be aware that the long-standing policy of the British Government is not to make substantive concessions to hostage takers. The British Government considers that paying ransoms and releasing prisoners increases the risk of further hostage taking.
 
Other significant incidents include:
 
  • 11 October 2007: grenade attack on a police HQ based in a hotel in Srinagar; three police officers injured.  Explosion on the Srinagar-Baramulla highway; five soldiers and two civilians killed.
  • 05 August 2007: grenade attack at a market in Awantipora, 30km south of Srinagar.  Nine people injured.
  • 03 August 2007: grenade attack on a marketplace in Banihal, 110km south of Srinagar.  Twenty four people injured, including five policemen.
  • 29 July 2007: explosion on a tourist bus in Shalimar gardens, Srinagar.  Six people killed.
  • 11 July 2006: series of grenade attacks in central Srinagar. Eight people, including six tourists, killed and 40 injured.
  • 21 May 2006: militant attack on a political rally in central Srinagar. Six people killed and 35 injured.
  • 1 May 2006: 35 civilians kidnapped and murdered by militants in Doda district in Indian-administered Kashmir.

You should beware of travel agents who will try to convince you that it is safe to travel to Jammu or Kashmir.  Despite increased official promotion of Kashmir as a tourist centre and improved relations between India and Pakistan, tensions remain high in Kashmir.
 
Other Northern States
 
We advise against all travel in the immediate vicinity of the border with Pakistan other than travel across the international border at Wagah.
 
  • On 23 November 2007, there were a series of explosions at local courts in Faizabad, Varanasi and Lucknow. This resulted in 13 fatalities and many more injuries.
  • On 14 October 2007, a blast in a multiplex cinema in Ludhiana, Punjab killed six people and injured at least 30 others.
  • On 11 October 2007, at least two people were killed and 14 injured in an explosion at the tomb of a 20th century Sufi saint in Ajmer, in the state of Rajasthan.
 
In 2005 and 2006 there were a number of bombings, in public areas, in Delhi and Varanasi. This included attacks in market places and inside the Jama Masjid Mosque in New Delhi. Security in New Delhi and other Indian cities has been increased.  You should remain particularly vigilant in crowded areas.
 
Trekking:  In 2000, there were several attacks, including murder, in the mountain areas of Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh.  We recommend that trekkers travel in groups and engage local guides.
 
The border between India and Pakistan in Rajasthan is unmarked in some areas (primarily because of the local geography).  Approaching the border away from an official crossing point could be dangerous, and where it is unmarked it could lead to a visitor straying into the other country illegally.
 
East and North East India
 
We advise against all travel in Manipur and Tripura and all but essential travel to Imphal.  If you intend to travel to Imphal then you should only travel there by air.  There is a risk from insurgent groups, mainly in rural areas of these and other states in the east and north east.  Although foreigners have not been the deliberate targets of violence, attacks can be indiscriminate.  Kidnapping, banditry and insurgency are rife throughout the region.

Since mid February 2008, sudden strikes have been called by the Gorkha Jana Mukti Morcha in Darjeeling and the surrounding hills in North Bengal. This has resulted in severe transport disruption, a shortage of drinking water, the suspension of waste removal and the closure of shops and government services in the region. An indefinite strike in the area has been called from 10 June 2008.  It is strongly recommended that if you intend to visit the region you should contact your hotel or lodgings beforehand to ensure that there is no localised disruption. The disruption will also affect visitors to Sikkim as roads to the state run through the Hill area.

  • On 16 January 2008, four people were seriously injured in an explosion in central Kolkata (Calcutta).
  • On 13 December 2007, a train travelling from Dibrugarh to Guwahati was the target of a bomb blast, resulting in five deaths.  You should be vigilant when travelling by public transport as it has been the target of previous attacks.
  • On 30 September 2007, at least six people were killed and over 30 were injured in bombings in the state of Assam.  The blasts occurred in the areas of Tinsukia and Doomdooma.
  • On 15 August 2007, during the Indian Independence Day celebrations in Assam four bomb blasts injured at least two people.
  • On 9 July 2007, at least 24 soldiers and police and 20 Maoists were killed in jungle clashes following reports of a rebel camp 500km (310 miles) south of the state capital of Chhattisgarh, Raipur.
  • On 28 May 2007, nine policemen were killed by a series of landmine blasts in Bastar district of Chhattisgarh.  On 15 March 2007 Maoist rebels attacked a police building in the Bijapur range of Bastar district (525 kilometres from state capital Raipur) in Chhattisgarh. At least 55 policemen were killed and 15 injured.
  • On 25 May 2007, seven people were killed and 30 injured in a bomb attack in Guwahati
  • Between 5-7 January 2007, over 60 people were shot and killed in a number of attacks on local workers in the extreme north east of Assam.
  • On 16 August 2006, a grenade attack occurred at the Iskcon temple in Imphal.  Four people were killed and 68 were injured, including some US and French nationals.
 
Between 18 and 29 February 2008 a strike was called by the Gorkha Jana Mukti Morcha in Darjeeling and the surrounding hills in North Bengal. This resulted in severe transport distruption, a shortage of drinking water, the suspension of waste removal and the closure of shops and government services in the region. Although the strike has been lifted it is strongly recommended that if you intend to visit the region you should contact your hotel or lodgings beforehand to ensure that there is no localised disruption.
 
We advise against all but essential travel to Imphal (by air) and against all travel in the rest of Manipur and Tripura.  There is a risk from insurgent groups, mainly in rural areas of these and other states in the east and north east, (particularly Manipur and Tripura).  Although foreigners have not been the deliberate targets of violence, attacks can be indiscriminate.  Kidnapping, banditry and insurgency are rife throughout the region.
 
You should be aware of the risk of violent crime in the rural areas of Bihar and Jharkhand.  There have also been occasional skirmishes on the India/Bangladesh border and civilians have been killed in the crossfire.  If you intend to travel to the north east you should check for updates to travel advice and keep yourself up to date on developments in the region.
 
Indian Government permits are required for travel to Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.  Applications for travel should be made well in advance.  In India, they should be made at the liaison offices of the state requiring permits or Foreigners Regional Registration Offices.  Permits for the Andaman and Nicobar Islands can be issued on arrival in Port Blair but this is not the case for other states.
 
Western Region
 
We advise against all travel in the immediate vicinity of the border with Pakistan other than travel across the international border at Wagah.
 
Since troubles in February 2002, there continues to be some intercommunal tension in Gujarat, which can lead to isolated incidents of violence.
 
In May 2006, six people were reported killed following riots in the western city of Vadodara. On 19 February 2006, there was an explosion at a railway station in the city of Ahmedabad, Gujarat, injuring at least 14 people.
 
The border between India and Pakistan in Gujarat is unmarked in some areas (primarily because of the local geography).  Approaching the border away from an official crossing point could be dangerous, and where it is unmarked it could lead to a visitor straying into the other country illegally.
 
In Mumbai, there is a risk of armed robbers holding up taxis travelling along the main highway from the airport to the city in the early hours of the morning  when there is little traffic on the roads.  If you are using the route during these times, you should, where possible, arrange to travel by coach or seek advice at the airport on arrival.
 
After you have cleared customs and immigration at Mumbai airport you should be wary of approaches by thieves posing as Government officials.
 
Goa

The Government of Goa has strict rules governing the purchase of property in the state by non-Indian nationals.  If the purchase is judge to violate local laws (including if you purchase whilst on a tourist visa), you are likely to lose all the money you have put into the purchase and may even face prosecution.
 
For further information about the purchase of property in India please see:  http://www.rbi.org.in/scripts/FAQView.aspx?Id=33.

Southern States

Various opposition groups in Tamilnadu and Pondicherry have called for a state wide general strike (bandh) on 7 June 2008 and protests on 9 and 10 June 2008 in protest against the rise in fuel prices.  It is anticipated that there will be demonstrations at transport depots, and local state and district administrative offices.  Although public transport will be available, it is quite likely that there will be disruption from protestors along the routes.  You should check with your airline about transport arrangements to and from the airport.

Road Travel

Take great care when travelling by road in India. Car and bike accidents are on of the biggest causes of injury and death overseas and several British nationals die each year on Indian roads. Special care should be taken at night. Always look to travel in a well-maintained vehicle with seatbelts. If you travel by bike be sure to wear a helmet.

For further information see Driving Abroad.

Sea Travel

Tourist boats and other small crafts very rarely carry life saving equipment.  The poor infrastructure can make the provision of consular assistance difficult, particularly in remote areas.

Piracy/armed robbery against ships has occurred in and around India’s waters.  Mariners are advised to be vigilant.

For more general information see River and Sea Safety

Swimming

 
Several drownings have highlighted the lack of warning signs or flags and life-saving equipment on most of India's beaches.  Strong undercurrents are a particular hazard.
 
Rail Travel

Do not accept food from strangers.  There have been reports of travellers being drugged and robbed on trains.  Take particular care of your passport and valuables when boarding and whilst on the train.

Avoid individuals at railway stations offering tickets and tours, mainly to Kashmir and Rajasthan.
 
Air Travel
 
Between the months of December and April, flights leaving India become very full.  Passengers may find themselves 'bumped off' flights even if they have confirmed seats.  All international departures must therefore be re-confirmed at least 72 hours before departure.

Local laws and customs

You should not become involved with drugs of any kind.  Penalties for possession of narcotic substances can be severe.  There is a minimum sentence of six months for possession of small amounts for personal consumption only.  However, a 10 year sentence for possession of other amounts applies.  The slow judicial process means that lengthy pre-trial detention, usually of several years, is normal.
 
The penalties for paedophile offences are also severe.
 
Indian family law is very different from UK law and particular caution is needed when, for example, child custody becomes an issue.
 
For more general information for different types of travellers see Travel Advice Relevant to You. 

Entry requirements

Visas
 
You must obtain a visa before travelling to India.  If you arrive without a visa, you will be refused entry.  Contact the Indian High Commission in London.
 
Since 29 May 2008 the Indian High Commission in London and the Consulate General Offices in Birmingham and Edinburgh will begin outsourcing the collection and delivery of visa applications. Two centres in London opened on 29 May 2008 with centres in Birmingham and Edinburgh to open shortly after. For more details about this you should visit the Indian High Commission website at: http://www.hcilondon.net/visa/visa-advisory-notice.html.
 
Foreign nationals arriving in India on long term multiple entry visas are required to register with the nearest Foreigners Regional Registration Officer within 14 days of arrival.  Overstayers will be fined and may be prosecuted or detained and later deported.  They may also need to appear in person at the Ministry of Home Affairs in Delhi.  The High Commission/Deputy High Commission may not be able to intervene in these cases.
 
Passport validity
 
Passports are required to be valid for a minimum of six months.

Health

Local medical facilities are not comparable to those in the UK, especially in more remote areas.  However, in the major cities private medical care is available, but is expensive.  In the case of psychiatric illness, specialised treatment may not be available outside major cities.  The treatment of such illnesses may require long-term hospitalisation, which may incur large expenditure and in many of these cases, insurance companies are reluctant to cover the cost.

There are many diseases common to India. You should take care with your water and food hygiene.  You should drink or use only boiled or bottled water and avoid ice in drinks.  If you suffer from diarrhoea during a visit to India you should seek immediate medical attention.  Mosquito-borne diseases, such as malaria, dengue and chikungunya affect most of India.

Eastern districts of Uttar Pradesh have annual outbreaks of mosquito-borne viral encephalitis which mostly affect rural areas in the monsoon season from June to October.

In the 2006 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic the UNAIDS/WHO Working Group estimated that around 5,600,000 adults aged 15 or over in India were living with HIV; the prevalence rate was estimated at around 0.9% of the adult population. This compares to the prevalence rate in adults in the UK of around 0.2%.  You should exercise normal precautions to avoid exposure to HIV/AIDS. For more general information on how to do this see HIV and AIDS.

You should seek medical advice before travelling to India and ensure that all appropriate vaccinations are up-to-date.  For further information on vaccination requirements, health outbreaks and general disease protection and prevention you should visit the websites of the National Travel Heath Network and Centre
NaTHNaC and NHS Scotland’s Fit for Travel or call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47

Avian Influenza (Bird Flu)
 
On 15 January 2008, the Government of India announced that the H5N1 avian influenza virus was found in dead chickens in Margram, Birbhum district, a village approximately 280 km from Kolkata (Calcutta) in West Bengal. The virus has since spread to thirteen areas with confirmed cases in the following districts; Burdwan, Bankura, Birbhum, Murshidbad, South Dinaipur, Howrah, Malda, Nadia, Hooghly, Purulia, South 24, West Midnapore and Cooch Behar. Over 600 000 poultry birds have been culled and the West Bengal state government have authorised the culling of up to 2 ,300, 000 birds within a 10 km radius of the outbreaks. No human infections have been confirmed.

In other previous outbreaks
 
  • On 26 July 2007, the Government of India announced that the H5N1 avian influenza virus was found in a poultry farm in Chingmeirong on the outskirts of Imphal, the state capital of Manipur.  Over 130 chickens died and the Manipur state government authorised the culling of 150,000 chickens and other livestock within a 5km radius of the outbreak.
  • In March 2006, the Government of India stated that the virus had also been found in domestic poultry in Ichhapur village in the Burhanpur district of Madhya Pradesh.  This was close to the Jalgoan region of Maharastra, where the first India outbreak was reported in February 2006.
  • The March 2006 tests also  confirmed that the virus was present in domestic poultry in Surat, Gujarat, a few kilometres from Navapur.

The risk to humans from Avian Influenza is believed to be very low.  As a precaution you should avoid visiting live animal markets, poultry farms and other places where you may come into close contact with domestic, caged or wild birds; and ensure poultry and egg dishes are thoroughly cooked.
 
You should read this advice in conjunction with Avian and Pandemic Influenza, which gives more detailed advice and information.
 
Natural Disasters
 
Monsoons
 
Travel in the rural areas during the Monsoon season can be hazardous and care should be taken.  Monsoon rains cause flooding and landslides that can cut off some towns and villages for days at a time.  It is best to check access routes before setting off on a journey.
 
Tropical Cyclones
 
Tropical Cyclone Sidr passed through Bangladesh on 15/16 November 2007.  The storm caused minor infrastructure damage in Indian coastal regions in West Bengal and Orrisa (the damage in Bangladesh was more severe).
 
See Hurricanes for more details.
 
Earthquakes
 
On 8 October 2005, a large earthquake hit north west India, northern Pakistan and Afghanistan, with the epicentre near Muzaffarabad (Pakistani-administered Kashmir).  The earthquake caused widespread damage and extensive disruption to transport services in the region.

General

Insurance

We strongly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling.  You should check any exclusions, and that your policy covers you for all the activities you want to undertake.  See Travel Insurance for more details.
 
If things do go wrong when you are overseas then this is how we can help.

Replacing a lost or stolen passport

If your travel document is lost or stolen you should notify the police immediately and obtain a police report.  A replacement passport can be applied for at New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata.  Straightforward applications are normally issued within 10 working days.

Cults

There have been media reports about the activities of some cults and religious movements in India.  For further information please contact the charity Information Network Focus on Religious Movements (INFORM), which aims to help people by providing them with accurate, balanced, up-to-date information about new and/or alternative religious or spiritual movements.  The website offers guidance and information about seminars and events: http://www.inform.ac

Consular Registration

Register with our LOCATE service to tell us when and where you are travelling abroad or where you live abroad so our consular and crisis staff can provide better assistance to you in an emergency.  More information about registering with LOCATE can be found here.

Purchasing Property

You are advised to seek legal advice before investing in immovable property or businesses in India.  There have been several cases where verbal agreements were reneged on and loopholes in agreements exploited to their disadvantage.
 
There are often strict rules preventing the purchase of property by non-Indian nationals (for example in Goa).  If the purchase is judged to violate local laws (including if you purchase whilst on a tourist visa), you are likely to lose all the money you have put in to the purchase, and may even face prosecution.
