  • I think that it is very nice for a foreign visitor to see someone he knows as soon as possible
  • I soon noticed that there was a waiting hall nearby
  • Again in here another officer did not let me in at first unless I paid him some money

      It was the first time I visited India. The purpose of my visit was to join an international seminar in New Delhi and continued with a sight-seeing trip. I understand that entry visa to India is not necessary for those having service passports from certain countries including my country of origin. Having landed in Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, I was directed to an immigration desk. The immigration officer did not seem to understand the immigration rules, as he kept asking why I did not

      get an entry visa first. Several minutes passed by then he asked someone who seemed to be his senior. The later advised him about the rule, and he finally let me go through after successfully making a very long queue behind me.

      The meeting point was a medium size hall. The coin operated phone box was not provided with an English phone directory. This might put foreign visitors in difficult situation when they need to contact a hotel or an office which they know by name only. Further,


      • I hate the unpopular rule applied in this airport that is to charge people who were going to meet the arriving visitors to enter the meeting hall. This made some of them to wait outside the building. I think that it is very nice for a foreign visitor to see someone he knows as soon as possible.

        On my last day in New Delhi, I went to this airport again. My suitcase was taken away by a youngster to the entrance of the main building for money without

        my permission. As my boarding time was in about three more hours, an officer did not let me in. I soon noticed that there was a waiting hall nearby. Again in here another officer did not let me in at first unless I paid him some money. After a short negotiation, I was allowed to enter the waiting hall. I do not blame about this international airport building which seems to be poor maintained, but many improvements are urgently needed for the facilities, rules, and human resources.
