Visa and Customs Duty Information-India


Visa and Customs Duty Information-India

There are separate rules for baggage clearance by customs authorities in India for Indian residents, foreigners residing in India and for tourists visiting India.

Indian citizens presently settled abroad contemplating a return to India for settlement have an option of using the transfer of residency rules that offer those returning after extended stays to benefit from relaxed rules regarding import of their personal belongings.

If you are thinking of transferring your residence to India, check out the duty free allowances and entitlements that may apply to you.

Please note that when arriving in India by air. There are two channels to exit the airport after clearing immigration at the airport. They are known as the Red and Green Channels.

If you do not have anything to declare at customs then you are free to walk out from the green channel. In case you have something to declare then you should proceed via the 'Red' channel where customs officers are waiting to assess your dutiable items and give you an opportunity to pay the customs duty applicable.
