I am Bulgarian passport holder, travelling from Dubai to Kuala Lumpur (to and from) via Delhi and Mumbai with layovers of 2-4 hours. The flights are with Jet Airways and Malaysian Airlines.

Do I need an airport transit visa for India?

  • @pnuts, I realise that website says so, but two weeks ago I transited in Chennai and didn't need a visa (citizenship was irrelevant, I wasn't even checked, just put through bag security a couple of times). I'm not putting as an answer as other airports may be different, but I'm curious.

According to TimaticWeb:

Visa required, except for Holders of an Overseas Citizen of India Card or Booklet, or:

Visa required, except for Holders of a Person of Indian Origin (PIO) Card, or:

TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Visa required, except for Holders of confirmed onward tickets for a max. transit time of 24 hours.

Hotel facilities are available in Terminal 3 at Delhi (DEL), provided holding boarding card for connecting flight.

Therefore you won't need a transit visa since your layover is shorter than 24 hours.
