Transit Visa


Transit Visa is granted for the sole purpose of enabling the holder to travel through India to reach his/her ultimate destination. If the holder intends to perform some work or business in India, irrespective of the duration of his/her proposed stay, he /she should obtain a visa of appropriate category.

Transit Visa is valid only for direct transit, which is not more than 3 days for each visit. For a stay in India beyond 3 days, a visa of the appropriate category should be obtained.

Transit Visa is ordinarily valid for a single journey and for entry within 15 days from the date of issue.

If the journey is not performed within the period of validity of the visa, a fresh transit visa would be required.

Transit Visa is not required in the following cases (for PRC nationals):

  1. If he/she is in direct transit by air and traveling through India by the same flight
  2. If he/she makes a halt at an Indian airport to catch a connecting flight but does not remain at the airport for a period exceeding 24 hours (In case the person desires to visit the town during this period, he/she may be allowed to do so on a landing permit)
  3. If the person desires to make a stopover in India for a period exceeding 24 hours, he/she will need a regular transit or entry visa
