First of all apologies. I have only just got around to registering even though I have been taking much needed advice over the last four years. My tale is for another day.

I want to warn readers of transferring FRRO registration to another state. I initially registered in Mumbai but had to move to another city, I went straight to the FRRO and registered, providing all the paperwork and endless photocpies and they stamped my residency book. Eight months on, my employment visa was expiring so I went along to find out what they needed to allow me to exit. After standing in a queue for 3 hours I was informed that I wasn't actually registered! I was informed I should have returned a month later when they had my file from Mumbai to register. I had asked at the time if this was it and whether they required anything else and was informed "No". All very frustrating as I had to do it all again, luckily I didn't leave it until the last minute.

Please please ask and ask again (check what they write in your residency book and ask them to explain what they write, they use a lot of abbreviations) whether you need to do anything else.

I hope this helps.
