Temporary landing facility( TLF) in emergent situations

Jan 14

There have been instances of foreign nationals turning up at the Indian ports of entry without the valid visas or travel documents. Mostly, they are the people of Indian origin with expired residential permits, or foreign born (and foreign passport holders) children of Indian parents. In certain emergent situations like death in family or illness, they can be granted Temporary landing facility( TLF) for 15 days at the Airport. Any further extension of stay in such cases are granted on a case to case basis by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Foreigners Division, Jaisalmer House, 26, Man Singh Road, New Delhi. In the absence of emergent situations, the foreigner without the visa or proper travel documents, will not be granted TLF and will be asked to exit India. In this regard, please note that the eligible nationals of Finland, Japan, Luxemburg, New Zealand or Singapore can get visa on arrival for 30 days.
