Indian tourist visa back?!

I have been reading that India is finally opening up for tourists. But apparently only for chartered flights from 15th October and normal flights from mid November.. Is that everyone else's understanding as well?

Hi my wife recently got her spouse visa extension and she will be eligible for ILR around the end of 2023. We just wanted to plan ahead for it to avoid issues closer to the time.

Re: Immigration advise ILR University Fees

Heres'a an idea: is it possible for you to change universities? If so, show your new ILR status to the new university and ask if you transfer to them will they accept you as a home student.

Re: 10 year visit visa

This combined with the fact that they have visited twice in the last 4 years (would have been more if it wasn't for covid) Keep in mind that you don't want their visits to be too frequent. Residing in the UK in the guise of "frequent or successive visits" counts against them for the purposes of a v...

Re: whats the best visa for my spouse? (Surinder singh confusion)

If she is just coming to visit as a tourist, getting a visitor visa will be far less cheaper and quicker compared to a spouse visa which is used if she plans to migrate to the UK.

Re: Spouse Visa extension

Hi my wife had her biometrics appointment (non priority) today.
They didn't keep her passport or BRP and after scanning returned both.
They also didn't give any letter or anything. Seems a bit surprising.

Is all this normal?
