Tourists re-entering India
According to new guidelines on Tourist Visa for INDIA, a two months gap between two visits is mandatory for foreigners holding long tem multi entry Tourist Visas. However, to facilitate bonafide tourists, it has since been decided that foreigners holding Tourist Visas, who after initial entry into India plan to visit another country and re-enter India before finally exiting, may be permitted two or three entries, as the case may be, by the Indian Missions/Posts, subject to their submission of a detailed itinerary and supporting documentation (ticket bookings).
Therefore , any tourists visiting Bhutan using India as an entry as well as exit point would be required to: -
I. Â Incase of tourists yet to process their Indian visa or are en-route
- While processing for their Indian visa at Indian Embassy/Missions/Consular in their country to give full itinerary (Entry/re-entry/exit) and request for authorization of re-entry into India before the two months gap.
- If the Indian visa is already processed and there is no authorization for re-entry than to obtain re-entry approval from Foreigner Registration Record Office (FRRO) at Indian International airports.
II. Incase of tourists who are already in Bhutan but does not have re-entry authorization within two months gap
