Need some advice on how much time is reasonable to allot in order to transfer from an international plane landing in Mumbai (12:30 a.m. on a Saturday January) and catch a domestic flight to Goa that same morning.

I think we would have to in Mumbai pick up luggage, go through customs and jump on a shuttle bus to transfer to the domestic terminal.

We would want to account for potential hassels. Have been told the shuttle is only once an hour and it is a 15 minute ride. Get the impression lots of international flights land in CSIA in the early hours.

Would 5 hours be a reasonable to allot for the necessary proceedures between the scheduled landing and the scheduled departure?

The shuttle buses are quite frequent but I must admit I have never arrived quite that early in the morning. There's nothing to stop you getting a taxi transfer between the terminals if this really is the case though.

I usually allow a minimum of 2 hours for the transfer although there have been times when it has been quicker.
