INDIA – E-Services Extended Nationally to All FRROs

Effective immediately, India’s Bureau of Immigration (BOI) has rolled out nationally its new [https://indianfrro.gov.in/eservices/home.jsp~e-FRRO]] system for online visa-related services.

Foreign nationals touring India no longer need to physically visit the office of the Foreigners Registration Office (FRO) or the Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) for visa-related services including registration and visa extension, visa conversion and exit permits, which are now available online via the e-FRRO platform.

Since February 2018, the system has been run as a pilot in four FRROs (Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai) and it has now been extended to the remaining eight FRROs (Kolkata, Amritsar, Hyderabad, Cochin, Thiruvananthapuram, Calicut, Lucknow and Ahmedabad). However, it has not yet been implemented at FRO centres such as Gurgaon, Pune and Chandigarh.

Action Items

  • Foreign nationals requiring visa services from FRROs in India should register for an account here.
