Anyone know what the current visa status is? I only want to stay for 2 or 3 days.

If not, can you transit the airport without a visa?
pretty sure not.

India Visa on Arrival / E-Visa started about a year ago.

It's technically an E-Visa which gets validated on arrival.

It's still not "perfect", but it's a lot better then it was before they got this new system.

While I am not certain about infants, check out this TR about staying in fun and nice cities. I enjoyed it a lot and he went all over.

Hey!! so I've been a bystander on this forum for a little while now, time for my first post!!

3 of us are traveling through India from Jan 9 - Jan 22. None of us have ever been to India before so I'm reaching out to you helpful folk for tips and recommendations. Any info on Must Sees/Dos, travel tips, Kosher food, phones, things to pack or not to pack, etc. all greatly appreciated. At the moment we are planing 1st shabbos in Mumbai and 2nd shabbos in New Dehli unless there is somewhere better we should go.  TIA David
