Workers planning a move to India may be forced to reconsider as a result of new visa rules, the Times has warned.
Many thousands of potential expats may be affected by the new visa requirements, which were ushered in without warning, apparently as part of an anti-terrorism strategy.
Previously, expats living in the country on a five- or ten-year visa were required to leave the country every 180 days in order to revalidate their visas, and many chose to take a short trip to neighbouring countries to do so.
Under the new rules however, expats will be required to leave the country for at least two months before their visa can be revalidated.
The US embassy was prominent in the chorus of objectors to the new arrangements. A statement on its website reads: "These new visa and registration regulations are being implemented inconsistently and are not finalised."
Expat Focus reports that India has made large strides in improving healthcare infrastructure in recent years, although those planning a move may find further peace of mind with an expat health insurance policy.
