Default Travelling to India for Visa Stamping and Vacation ,need travel tips.

Hi all ,

Me and my husband are planning india trip in jun or july this year for 2-3 weeks.We both need to get our visas stamped in New Delhi .
We are short on time and our native places are far .So to save time and keep the window for passport arrival if approved or any problems ,postal delays..I was thinking to get visa-interview-date the day we land to delhi.
So here is the probelm,travelling with heavy bags ,international baggage is unsafe and difficult.
What would be the travel tips ?
Our plan is-
1.To stay in some hotel in delhi the day we land( if we reach in evening) and go to stamping next day.
Where to stay? Should we go to consulate with all international luggageand directly travel for native or keep in hotel room, come back later for it ,is it safr options?

Traveeling is also difficult

2.Then for there on ,what transport ,bus,delux bus,train ,or flight to take to chandigarh.
what ever is easiest for us ?
For regular bus(i know is pretty fast,5-6 hrs) ,we have to go to ISBT and keep lugaage on top of bus...i dont know about seats...availability .

For deluxe, never travelled so need tips.
Or better to take train ,go to railway station.

I dont know if domestic flgihts allow that much of baggage option, do they allow international luggage ,something like through checkin.

Please throw in your valuable suggestions to make our trip easy and better usage of time.

Hi there!
The biggest challenge for you here would be to get the Visa interview date matching with your travel itinerary. You do not have a real choice in terms of getting Visa interview date of your choice. Also visa dates for July will get open only in June and you probably will book your tickets etc well in advance, and therefore it's kind of difficult to get the Visa interview date as per your schedules.

For baggage thing though, I guess airports have locker facilities available where you can put your luggage.They will charge you on hourly basis. Please find out about that.

Domestic flights will most probably allow you to carry international luggage if you show them your boarding pass/eticket to confirm that you are an international traveler

Good luck!.

My 2 cents..

My brother reached Chennai early morning 2 AM and had visa interview at 9 AM. He took the risk and flight arrived on time. This was Mid-Feb 2011.

I had his visa interview details, so just in case there is flight delay, I was going to inform VFS about travel delay and cancel his appointment. "No show" will get you like 90 days ban.

I would do the the following - book a hotel room near consulate, leave the bags in hotel, complete the interview, then rent a taxi and to final destination. this option will be convenient compared to bus and train.

Hi all
Thanks for your suggestions.

First thing ,i should get visa dates then get my flight booked accordingly.I know both things are difficult to get synchronized thats why i am trying to gather all details ahead.

Lockers is a great idea ,i dinnt know about it.

Because of all the distances from delhi to native places and time shortage i have to do this.


So taking taxi from Delhi , i am pretty scared as i heard bad experiences. My couple friend got their certificates stripped of in delhi while they were going for visa.
