Thinking about taking off on a trip...

... then you should be well informed and prepared. Following is some travel information and other important sources that we've put together for you. Additionally, we are always happy to help in clarifying any questions you may have and it's easy - we are only a click away.

  • Visa
    All non-indian citizenes require a visa. Please contact the Indian embassy in your country to find out how to get a visa for India.
    For German citizens the following in true:
    Your passport must be valid for at least six months. The granting of a visa is completely unproblematic. A six month visa for 50,- € is enough.
    If you request your visa by post, please consider the ways of the post office and send your documents by registered mail. In Germany a pre paid envelope (4 euro) is sufficient.
  • Vacinations
    There are no prescribed vacinations for India.
    Persons coming from areas with yellow fever (determined countries in Africa, Central and South America), require a valid international vacination passport.
    However, it is generally recommended to vaccinate oneself against Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio, Hepatitis A & B and Typhoid.
    Since different aspects should be considered in individual cases, it is advisable to consult an experienced travel-medical pysician or pharmacist 4-6 weeks before the journey. There are various opinions about the Malaria Prophilaxe, so we recommend to seek medical advice.
  • Driving License
    You need a valid national as well as an international driving license of class 1 and/or A.
  • Weather Chart
    Listed below you will find the average max (T+) and min (T-) temperatures and rainfall (R). The temperatures are in degrees Celsius and the rainfall in mm. Naturally we can not make any guarantees about the weather during your tour, but the temperatures give you an idea of what it will be like during that part of the year.
