Travel and Visa

It is recommended that all non-Indian participants read the information about Indian immigration at Bureau of Immigration, India and take appropriate actions to comply with the immigration policies/rules. A letter of invitation may be required to apply for an Indian visa to attend the conference(s). In such situation, please contact the chair of the respective conference.

In India, INR is the only legal currency allowed in financial transactions. So, visitors are advised to carry sufficient funds in INR for basic expenses and to only transact with merchants in INR. However, many merchants in Bangalore do accept major credit cards --- Visa, MasterCard, and Ames.

INR can be obtained at various foreign exchange vendors both at Bangalore International Airport (upon arrival) and within Bangalore city limits. It is advised that any participant converting foreign currency into INR should retain the transaction advice for these conversions. Similarly, it is advised to retain transaction slips for withdrawal of cash in INR from ATMs. These transaction advices and slips are required to convert any left-over INR into foreign currencies before departing from India.
