Can I travel to India with a UK travel document?

No, you cannot travel to India with a UK travel document. A UK travel document is one granted to stateless people or refugees who are unable to get a passport from their home country. The Indian Government does not accept UK travel documents as an acceptable form of identity for visiting India.

If you are a stateless person or a refugee wishing to visit India, you must apply for a visa at the Indian embassy or consulate in your home country. The type of visa you require will be determined by the purpose of your journey to India.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • Stateless persons and refugees transiting through India do not require a visa as long as they do not leave the airport transit area.
  • Stateless people and refugees visiting India for a short period of time (less than 180 days) are eligible for a visa on arrival.
  • Stateless people and refugees who are unsure whether they need a visa should contact the Indian embassy or consulate in their country of residence.
