I have got an e-ticket for the flight. It's Jet Airways, London to Colombo with a 7.5 hour connection in Mumbai. Same operator (Jet Airways). Do I need a transit visa? [EDIT: Is this the correct restatement of facts?]

  • I have re-edited the question to conform to a chronological statement of flights (correctly?), but in any event we need to know your citizenship, and possibly your visa status if you are an expatriate, to answer. Aug 1, 2017 at 23:22
  • @AndrewLazarus Irrelevant. Unless OP only has a document for stateless people or refugees, and if the trip is in a single booking, no visa is required

  • @Crazydre Irrelevant for that airport, could have mattered for another. Aug 2, 2017 at 0:46
  • @AndrewLazarus Applies to all Indian Airports with international interline connections

Assuming the trip is in one booking, no, you do not need a transit visa.

Timatic, the database used by airlines, says:

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

Not applicable to stateless persons and refugees.

So unless you're a refugee or stateless, you'll be fine.
