Many international dishes evolve to suit local tastes in ethnic restaurants outside their home country. Plus new dishes are created based on ethnic cuisine, but designed for the local market. And some dishes which are served in every "India" restaurant world wide, might only be served in a small district in their home country Dishes, such as the Chinese ...

The town you're looking for seems to be Leh in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir quite in the north of India. Leh seems to be the common name, but in Tibetian it is written like that: གླེ. The picture you have mentioned in the question could be either from the Shey Monastery or similar monasteries such as Thiksey, or the Leh Palace. However, all of them ...

A comparison just for the sake of making an example would be online shopping vs conventional shopping. Which one is easier? Ordering a movie online and being able to watch it on spot without moving your lazy butt or going all the way to the store to get the DVD? Same thing goes for visas. Most people when planning a vacation they put a list of places to ...

eVisas are easier to obtain, thus encouraging more people to visit. While for many who visit this forum, visas are but a minor nuisance, to many they are an obstacle, finding the form to fill out, going to get photos made, going to the bank for a bank money order ... easier to go somewhere else. Though I find a 400% increase to be stretching it a bit for ...

Yes, you can. The "two-month gap" rule between tourist visas was abolished for most nationalities (including NZ and UK) in 2012, which means that as long as your new passport has more than 6 months validity, you're welcome back. Even if they did still care, in practice, they're unlikely to be able to match your two passports together.

I don't know of any organised places where snake charmers meet (the equivalent of a Jemaa el-Fnaa square, Marrakech for example). Moreover India is a fairly large country so there's no way to definitely rule out this possibility. However I do recall setting quite a few of these performances randomly on the street. I would usually find them outside, or in ...

It depends - the visa, not so much, but when your US passport expires. Yes, a visa is valid until the visa expiry date. So in your case, you can arrive in India on August 19, and leave again the same day if you want - your visa is still valid. So travelling there between May and June is fine as well, as it's still valid. However, you'll need to travel with ...

Looks like you just need an additional permit (same immihelp source): Permit Granting Authorities: MHA & FRROS All Indian Missions abroad Chief Immigration Officer, Chennai Immigration Officer, Port Blair Remarks: If arriving by air, permission to stay up to 30 days is issued on arrival at the airport in Port Blair. If arriving by sea, permit is ...

It looks like as New Zealand or Australia passport holders you can get a transit or visitor visa. Links provided by @pnuts in the comments are helpful. The transit visa seems way cheaper than the regular visitor visa, at 28 USD, but there is a priori no procedure explained online. The visitor visa costs 60 USD which is expensive compared with a hotel room ...

As per revised rules, the waitlisted e-tickets will be cancelled automatically. See the section 3.4 (3rd point) of this page. However high court already ordered to make it same as physical ticket (i.e. it should not cancelled as ticket purchased from reservation counter).

According to clause b in this document on India's Bureau of Immigration website Foreigners other than those mentioned above will not be 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 of the foreigner is to stay in India for ...
