I have seen other similar questions here but none with my specific question.
I recently acquired British nationality & have a British passport. I need to travel to India urgently for a short visit. I still have my Indian passport and am within the three month grace period (as outlined on http://www.vfsglobal.com/india/uk/Surrender.html
). This implies that I should be able to travel on my Indian passport without facing any problems or penalties.
However, I have a question - what passport do I present at what stage? I anticipate a problem - I can enter India on my Indian passport, no problem.
On exit from India, I could either:
1. show them my Indian passport, but they will want to see a valid British visa - which I do not have, since I had to surrender my biometric residence permit. Will they allow me to exit without a visa?
2. Show them my British passport - but this does not have an entry stamp for India.
3. Show them both passports and explain the situation. Will this work or am I going to have problems?
Although I am within the three month grace period, I'm not sure how this would work on the ground and I want to avoid any problems - but don't have much time before I need to travel.
Advice & links to official documentation appreciated.
