Visas, Health, Waiver, Money

Visas: You are responsible for acquiring a required tourist visa.  eVisas are easier, quicker and less expensive. You can only apply for a Tourist eVisa within 30 days of travel to India. If you think you will go to India more often, get a 10-year multiple entry Tourist Visa. Please check with your Indian Embassy or for more information see

Health Concerns: You may be subject to jet lag, varied climatic conditions, bumpy train and bus rides, dust and air pollution, very different food, crowds of people, unfamiliar sights and sounds. These all take their toll and can be overwhelming for the first-time visitor to India, but Her incredible hospitality, warm humanity, and abundant spirituality always come through and touch everyone in a deep and mysterious manner. Bring what comforts you in the way of any health needs or medications: anti-diarrhea tablets, mosquito repellent, sun block, basic first-aid items, etc. In case of emergencies, doctors and pharmacies can be found. If you have any medications that you need, you must bring them with you. Bottled water is always available for you to purchase, but please carry a water bottle that you can refill in order to minimize plastic use. Contact us if you have any special health concerns. Here is a good website for travelers with health concerns:

Immunizations and Travel Waiver No immunizations are required but several are recommended by the Atlanta CDC.

What to Bring. Pack as lightly as possible. Bring a yoga mat. Weather will be warm to hot but may rain. A travel umbrella is good for rain and shade. Passport and money must be kept securely. Have a copy of the info and visa pages of your passport. Call your bank to tell them that you are traveling in India. There are ATMs everywhere. But as the ATMs are not always reliable, or easy to find, you should bring the equivalent of about $200 – $500 US, in your currency, to change into Indian rupees to have on hand for shopping and sundry discretionary expenses (tips, chais, etc.) It is easiest to change money at the airport upon arrival. If you need an Indian SIM for your mobile you can do that at the airport as well.
