I have a visa for India valid from Monday.

There is a flight that arrives 23:55 Sunday night. Will airlines let me board?

    It depends on the check-in agent. A reasonable one would understand you won't clear customs at least ten minutes if not more after landing. Somewhat similar question here travel.stackexchange.com/questions/48611/… – user 56513 Mar 30 '17 at 20:02

    What will you do when your flight arrives an hour early? – Michael Hampton Mar 30 '17 at 21:27

    Walk very slowly. – Andrew Lazarus Mar 30 '17 at 23:12

The answer was "No problem", at least for me.

    Answer where? At the Airport? – JonathanReez Apr 1 '17 at 20:07
  • No problem with the check-in agent at SFO. For arrival I hatched a brilliant plan, magically slowing my first leg down enough I misconnected, and will not be arriving until well into the visa's first valid day. – Andrew Lazarus Apr 2 '17 at 16:43
  • so, walk slowly from the gate to immigration counter worked :) ... BTW, which country/airport? – Amit Kaneria Apr 6 '17 at 19:27
  • Was flying to BOM, missed connection in HKG. – Andrew Lazarus Apr 7 '17 at 11:18
