A three month wait costs nothing, whereas a family trip to UK costs a very great deal, unless you happened to be going anyway.

Hello Friends,
We live/work in Australia and are on holidays here in India at parent's place.
Dad : Australian Citizen ( Indian Origin)
Mom : Indian Citizen ( with Australian PR visa)
Planning to deliver baby in India and then go back to Australia.

1) How much time it takes to get the baby's exit visa after we submit the application in New Delhi?
2) What doc or stamp do you get as this visa?

3) Since we will have to apply for
- Get Australian Citizenship (by descent) certificate and then
- Australian Passport.
- Exit Visa
What is timeline we should be looking for completing all these 3 items? If we start item1 from 10March2013?

The Bureau of Immigration site now has a page: New Born Baby.

No need for you to go to Delhi.

Yep, right but my City (Amaravti-Maharashtra) is not in FRROs list
I understand Foreigners Regional Registration Officers (FRROs) : Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Amritsar, Bengaluru and Hyderabad.

But cannot find in which other cities we have Foreigners Registration Officers (FROs)?
Will it make diff in processing time if I goto Mumbai (FRRO) OR Delhi (FRRO) OR a closest city with FRO?

Read #28 of the Powers granted to FRO/FRROs talk to your local Amravati local police or SubDivisional Magistrate, print this link out. If they agree, then you are done.

AartiG, we did exactly as Nick has suggested above. Once our daughter's passport arrived, we brought that print-out to the local FRO. Meant to post details of how it all worked out, but just didn't manage to do it til now.

Our friendly neighbourhood FRO issued her with an X-Visa (Rs. 4,000) for 6 months. We decided to do this instead of an exit stamp, as we weren't sure we'd be able to get her PIO done on our short trip out of India.

They did, however, advise us not to try and re-enter on this X-Visa, as although it was a multi-entry 6 month X-Visa, it was just handwritten on a Visa Extension Stamp. While it should have worked in theory, he wasn't confident it would be accepted on arrival. We did go ahead and get her PIO Card done while we were away, so not sure if that stamp would have worked for re-entry. We reckoned it probably would have, but as I was travelling back with baby and without husband, decided not to risk it, as the last thing you need off a long haul flight with a 6 month old is a grumpy visa officer telling you get back on the plane as your baby's Visa isn't valid!!

(It turned out, actually, that her PIO card wasn't valid, due to a error on the part of the embassy when filling in the expiry date. We noticed just in time and managed to get it amended, but that's a whole other thread )

Best of luck with it

Aarti, it is considered bad form in posting the same question over again. Emma has given you the roadmap, and I posted the link, and Nick did too. You will have to do some reading and basic analytics and make a trip to your local FRO.

No one can predict what an FRO in Amravati would take to process. Not all Magistrates/Police Inspectors are clued on the process based on their experience.

Go to the website http://www.mha.nic.in/ There is a document that called ForeigD-PwrdlgtFRROs.pdf - Print out Item 28.

Take both to the FRRO Bangalore and ask them to process the visa.

Basically ForeigD-PwrdlgtFRROs.pdf outlines the powers granted to the FRROs to grant various extensions and visas and yada-yada-yada.

Hi. I went through the first link (Newly_born_baby2.htm) - the 1st point refers to a form filled in ONLINE for exit permission - no link to any form though?

Any/ all help if anyone has been through this (finding this 'online form') is very much appreciated!

I did find this (http://indianfrro.gov.in/frro/) which has a section on children born in India and exit permissions, but this doesn't mention any 'form'!

Cheers,

Ian.

Thanks nycank for that. Only problem I see is that the form is supposed to go to Jaisalmer House in Delhi. Not sure how that fits with other peoples' experience of getting exit permission for a newborn baby from their local FRRO without having to go to Delhi. I don't want to take the form to the local FRRO here in Ahmedabad only for them to read it and tell me I have to go to Delhi if (according to previous posts) such a trip is not necessary.

Then go to FRO in A'bad and sit down with the SDM or whoever, and ask him/her for the roadmap - More with honey than with vinegar...

FWIW, we got an exit visa in a single day for our adopted Indian child last year. This was at Mumbai FRRO. There was no need to fill in a form online, the FRRO employees did it in the office while we waited. It took them all day though - from around 11 am until 4 pm. And I had to watch the employee's work with an eagle eye, as she nearly filled in an incorrect "valid until" date which meant the visa would have been invalid by the date we actually flew out of India! So you need to make sure all the information is correct, especially the "valid until" date.

Not sure what this says about the level of bureacracy!
When did you send your UK passport application in for your son?

My little guy's application went in at the end of November and we're still waiting. I have been trying to find someone else in a similar situation to get some idea of processing times (although I know ... 'mileage might vary'!)

The PP application web page says 'at least 6 weeks' but the actual form instructions says processing may take 15 to 16 weeks.

If anyone else could provide some idea of processing time that'd be great.

Sounds like a good plan. Shall definitely try it as soon as the passport comes through.

Cheers,

Ian.
