The Foreigners Registration Office is the primary agency to regulate the registration, stay, departure, and extension of stay in India. Foreign nationals visiting India for a long period of time (more than 180 days) have to register themselves with Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) within 14 days of their arrival in India. If the deadline is not met, the registration will be marked as late and will involve an additional fee.
Foreigners would not be required to mandatorily visit FRRO/FRO office for a grant of service. However, in certain exceptional cases, the foreigner will be intimated to visit the FRRO/FRO on scheduled date and time for the interview. Foreigners need to get their registration done. Therefore, the family members of the expatriate, above the age of 16, also have to get themselves registered.
OBOX guides you with all the legal formalities that need to be completed by the foreigners intending to stay long term.
