Some Business visa holders may have to obtain exit permits

Jan 06

As per Government of India, Ministry of Home Affairs( MHA) recent guidelines for the business visa holder, the foreign nationals who were already in the country on Business visas and engaged in executing project/contract were required to leave the country by 31st October, 2009. There have been few business visa holders who were covered by the above mentioned provision and did not leave India before 31st October, 2009. Now there have been reports that some ports of entry are not allowing these business visa holders to exit India without obtaining an exit permit form the FROs. So these business visa holders should ensure that they have an exit permit from the concerned FRO, otherwise they may be turned away from the POEs and asked to secure an exit permit before leaving India.
