 Passports and Visas

 

All individuals from outside India require a valid passport to enter India. All foreign nationals, including children, require a visa to enter India. Please do not finalize your travel arrangements to India before ascertaining the visa. requirements.

Passport Requirements

You need to carry a valid passport when traveling to India. The passport should be kept up to date by renewing it before the expiration date.

Visa Requirements

  • Original passport valid for at least six months
  • Correct visa fee
  • Two passport-size photographs (five photographs required for Pakistani nationals)

Visa on Arrival

Currently India has a Visa on Arrival program open to 12 countries:

Cambodia, Finland, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Luxembourg, Myanmar, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam
     
Beginning in November 2014 the Visa on Arrival program will extend to 180 countries. (Eight countries have been excluded. These are Pakistan, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Somalia.)

In and Around New Delhi

Delhi is not only the capital of India but also a city that bridges two different worlds. Old Delhi, once the capital of Islamic India, is a labyrinth of narrow lanes lined with crumbling havelis and formidable mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi created by the British Raj is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings. For around a millennium, Delhi has been the seat of power for several rulers and many empires. Many times the city was built, destroyed and then rebuilt here. Interestingly, a number of Delhi’s rulers played a dual role, first as destroyers and then as creators.

The city’s importance lies not just in its past glory as the seat of empires and magnificent monuments but also in its rich and diverse cultures. No wonder chroniclers of Delhi culture—from Chand Bardai and Amir Khusro to present-day writers—have never been at a loss for topics. In Delhi, you will discover that the city is sprinkled with dazzling gems: captivating ancient monuments, fascinating museums and art galleries, architectural wonders, a vivacious performing-arts scene, fabulous eating places and bustling markets.

Delhi has always been the political center of India; all of the country’s political activities are rooted here, as they were in myth as well. Indraprastha, which is believed to have been located in the region of Delhi, was the capital of the mythic kingdom led by the Pandavas, as recounted in the Mahabharata.

 

 Climate and Dress

 

New Delhi’s average high temperature in February is 72°F (24°C) and the average low temperature at night is 54°F (11°C).

The conference encourages business casual attire. Conference rooms are well air-conditioned, and the inside temperature might be slightly warmer or cooler than you find comfortable. Therefore, it is suggested that you dress in layers (have a light jacket or shawl with you).
