Press Release

Travelling on a passport different from the passport mentioned on E-visa

It has come to notice that some foreigners, who travel to India on a passport different from the passport mentioned on their e-visa, face difficulties at the immigration in India. It has now been decided that such foreigners who travel to India on a new passport which is different from the passport mentioned on their e-visa would be allowed entry into India, provided the foreigner is carrying the old passport on which the e-visa has been issued.
