Never done this in India, but other countries have a similar system. If you walk through the green channel, then normally your baggage will not be searched or scanned. You just walk through and out into the public area. So, you ask, doesn't everyone do this, whether or not they have things to declare? Because there are people watching the lane, and if ...

As said in the comments, to get an Indian E-Visa two blank pages are needed, but they do not have to be next to each other. One page will be used for the visa itself, and other will be used for the entry stamp. As you have four pages left this will be fine.

Yes, you can. Do not seal the package as customs will definitely want to inspect the contents. It is not actually needed to have them in the return box, it is sufficient that they were purchased within the United States customs territory (i.e. duty has already been paid on them), within the past three years, and that they have not been advanced in value. You ...

My understanding is that the Indian visa process is considerably more complicated and time consuming if you are of Pakistani descent, but you are unlikely to be denied the visa if everything checks out. I don't believe the government publishes visa rejection rates though, so this is anecdotal. If you're looking to go in January, I would advise you to apply ...

I have traveled through multiple Airports in India and abroad. Most airports scan luggage for international travelers, most of the time. I had my luggage scanned for every time when I landed in India, except once. On contrary, Singapore airport scanned only twice out of my 20+ landings. They don't enforce every rule though. For instance, I am only allowed ...

Pakistani nationals can apply for a Visitor Visa to visit friends or relatives in India. This includes your girlfriend. Because Pakistani nationals cannot obtain Tourist Visas, you should apply for a Visitor Visa and explicitly declare that you wish to visit your girlfriend. She will need to send you a sponsorship certificate that you will include with your ...

I am not sure about the link you have posted, but this is the official website for the Indian eVisa https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/evisa/tvoa.html The official website will ask you about the date of arrival, the port of entry and duration of stay. However, you can arrive on a different date as long as it falls within the duration/validity they have ...

I have gotten one bottle of liquor when flying in to India from Frankfurt in the past, and never had any problems with this. That was one of the only few items I got, and it was well below the monetary duty limit and the 2 litre alcohol limit: You can find the limits here.

I don't have any suggestion how to get the e-visa faster. I think I can explain how you got into this predicament because it happened to me: the cutoff time after you submit the application is measured in the Indian Time Zone (at the server), but the date shown when you make the application is your local time zone (in your browser). As India is significantly ...

If you have to re-check your baggage because your tickets were booked separately, you will have to enter India. This is something to check with Indigo, your airline. Also 3.5 hours should be enough to make your connection.

You can carry anything you want, but you will have to declare to US Customs whatever property you carry. The property will be subject to inspection (so it shouldn't be sealed) and to assessment of duty if Customs judges that its value exceeds whatever amount might be exempt. Exemption amounts vary depending on where you're coming from, and some items or ...

In 2017, I traveled to India on an eVisa, and did not have my ticket booked before my application. You can also see the sample form here, and it's not required.

First of all congratulations on your bravery in taking your baby overseas. We did a similar trip except to Europe 9H flight. We slept maybe 2H. You will be first to board after first class and last to disembark due to all the stuff you’re carrying. My recommendation is Do not bring car seat at all. Not worth the hassle. Bring a baby carrier and ask your ...
