Which Domestic Airlines is Best in South India?
Hi travelling to Mumbai next week and have been looking at news articles regarding money shortages after withdrawal of larger notes. Kind of getting a mixed picture. What is actually happening? Is cash available at ATMs? Would I be able to get money at the airport? I have been to India a lot and understand that cash is still the main way to pay for goods and services, so therefore feeling a bit concerned. Any help/tips appreciated.

I landed in Mumbai yesterday and it seems difficult to find places that'll take my 2000 rupee note, which is all I have. Can anyone off suggestion as to how I might be able to do so? I'm told that the ATMs only dispense 2000 as well. Thanks in advance. :)

I am about to apply online for an etourist visa from the U.K. I am visiting India in January for 27 days. I believe once the application is approved I print off the visa and carry with my passport on entry into India.
A friend has worried me by saying I have to visit the High Commision in London to have the visa entered in my passport! Surely that defeats the whole idea of an e visa

Hello everyone. I will be traveling to Mumbai-Jaipur-Delhi in two weeks. I have read the previous post regarding the currency issues but can anyone provide an update on the situation?

After that we like to visit naturally beautiful places and want to spend few days there; such as - hill areas or sea shores.

Visa from Indian Embassy in HCMC
21 minutes ago
Hi there, I'm a UK citizen and I had my passport and wallet stolen in HCMC. I've now got an emergency passport and am in the process of getting all the visas I need for my onward journey.
However I'm a bit confused... My flight back to the UK involves a one and a half hour stop over in Delhi to change planes. On the UK gov site it says that people travelling on an ETD ( emergency passport) need a visa and TWO ETD's - one to enter Delhi and one to leave Delhi. I'm having trouble finding out if this is true as I've had no reply to my emails and can't get through on the phone to the Indian Embassy. Can anyone help?
We are traveling in a tour group in India 11/11/2016 to 17/11/2016. Tour group company wanted our Visas asap so applied on line and all went perfectly smooth. Visas were granted, however it states that we can arrive between 8/10/2016 (date of the application) and 11/11/2016 (date of our arrival by plane, if the plane arrives on time and is not delayed to the next day or so). This did not seem right so emailed them only to be told the ETA date could not be changed.
We think someone has made a mistake with our dates but are having trouble sorting it out!
Has anyone else experienced this with the dates on their application???

I want a plan a trip to Goa with my friends, and require some help with planning for the whole trip.
We are all from Delhi, and we need all kinds of details given on how to plan a trip to Goa from traveling from Delhi to sightseeing in Goa and coming back home.
We are not too sure on how many days we should stay in Goa as well, so all the information provided such as places to see and things to do will allow us to find out what the duration of our holiday would be.
Did anyone ever have this problem? I will land in India on the 16th of December and flying out 15th January at 1:50am. Would this be counted as 31 days? Since the visa clearly indicates as 30 days or does the 30 day count once you check in [ so I would do so before midnight] Any help would be great as I am worried they wont approve my application of the E Visa.
