On your arrival in India, there are certain points that you should keep in mind.
Customs Formalities: International students in India are usually required to make an oral baggage declaration of the ownership of baggage and foreign currency as soon as they land in India.Under this, they also need to get the Currency Declaration Form from the Customs. The students must also fill in the Disembarkation Card (Arrival card) handed over to them by the airline during the course of the flight.
There are two channels for approval:
- Green Channel:For passengers not in possession of any dutiable articles or unaccompanied baggage.
- Red Channel: For passengers in possession of dutiable articles or unaccompanied baggage or high-value articles. High-value items are to be entered on the tourist Baggage Re-Export Form.
