Hello, I have been reading the posts from this forum since my first trip to India last year. Lots fo fantastic info here.
My next trip is very soon. I ma marrying a Tibetan and am on a one year tourist visa for now. Im researching if it's possible to stay there longer once we are married. It looks like only Indian national marriages are eligible? Any information is very welcome. We are together a year now and the separation has been heartbreakingly painful. I'm a US citizen and PR of Canada soon to be citizen. I was only allowed to apply for a one year as a PR. So I'm looking to see what I can do as far as getting to stay there after we are married.
Quote:On a one year T visa, you can stay 180 days/visit. Has your fiance tried to obtain an Indian passport ? Maintaining a Refugee status, limits his scope and movement, and the options you have in staying longer.
I think you should try to get a face-2-face appointment with First Sec. Consular affairs in the Indian High Commission, or consulate, which ever is nearest to you, to get a clarification on getting a T visa converted to an X visa.
