Yes. That is just something to record a foreigners exit from India, nothing else.

@OP: If you are worried whether she will be allowed back into India after the visit, then you probably have a valid concern. Again what visa she has and what are the conditions attached to it as well as for the residence permit (RP) are important. Someone will be able to reply better if you post that.

I think you might be better off leaving it to your wife. She has MBBS? That puts her in the upper strata of society so far as education is concerned, and, if she has experience in medical practice, it also means she will have wide knowledge of dealing with everyone from general public to the officials she works for. You seem to be confused: maybe she will not be.

VISA called Long term Visa

What does it say in the field called "Type?" is it "X"? ---or what?

She has a visa and a residents permit. Does it say anywhere on either of those documents that she needs permission to leave the country? Because, if it doesn't ...she doesn't. It is not normal or usual for a foreigner to need permission to leave India. I am a foreigner, married to an Indian citizen, living here in India, and I have never asked for or needed permission to leave the country.

There are rare instances in which an exit visa is required, but this would be stated on the documentation.

I accept there are special restrictions that can apply to citizens of India's neighbouring countries but this should be endorsed on the visa/RP.

Citizenship process? Doesn't it say "ordinarlily resident in India?" If she is going to live in Japan, then of course that will be interrupted. You have only been married for two years: don't even think about citizenship for ages!

I dont know anything about this particular case but most bangladeshi spouses of Indian citizens are very keen to get Indian citizenship as soon as possible.
So their case is a little different from that of a spouse from a western country.

I know(very vague knowledge) that the calculation for number of years for citizenship(when they leave India for some period of time) can be affected by the the "permit" they get while leaving India. In case they leave without the permit(among many other factors) the clock resets to zero. So its of utmost importance to them.

You and your wife may have to take a trip to Delhi.

Aha, Nayan... You are a great fount of knowledge! Do Bangladeshis married to Indian generally find it possible to get Indian citizenship?

It may well be that she is doing already, but if not, I do feel that Mrs RajK should be visiting these various officials, and maybe posting enquiries here, rather than her husband trying to deal with the situation from far away. Do you think that is a good idea?

Absolutely. From what little I know, its almost impossible to get citizenship for those citizens from India's neighborhood (in a legal way) and I remember reading that it is 12 years of continuous stay. That's a LONG time and to have it reset if and when you leave the country is like as good as forgetting about citizenship in the person's lifetime.

There is (according to my sources ;) ) indeed a LTV. These apply to nationals of three countries who are desirous of seeking indian citizenship through marriage. Bangladesh, Pakistan and Refugees. Whenever these citizens leave the country they have to get a No Objection to Return.

And does the application for citizenship that they might have applied for reset the clock (if there is one) to zero as well? If it does, it looks like a no win situation.

Thanks, nycank. I'll just shut up then (I was trying to help, honest!) like I knew I ought to have done in the first place. It seems Bangladeshi visa stuff is just not necessarily the same as any other visa stuff.

Yes its possible for bangladeshi citizens to get Indian citizenship after a number of years of getting married to an Indian citizen and residing in India.

Just remember that many of these bangladeshi citizens have close relatives who are Indian citizens. So staying in India continously is no hardship for them.

I have second and third cousins who are bangladeshi citizens. That particular branch of the family did not leave east bengal at the time of the partition(47) or later. But now most are desparate to come to India. A good way to do this is to get the children married in India.


It may well be that she is doing already, but if not, I do feel that Mrs RajK should be visiting these various officials, and maybe posting enquiries here, rather than her husband trying to deal with the situation from far away. Do you think that is a good idea?

As he is Indian, the Indian authoroties are likely to be more sympathetic to him than to her.

Have filled the "Form of application to be filled by bangladesh nationals desiring to extend stay in India"

Have written a prayer for Indian Citizenship on virtue of marriage to an Indian national addressed to the joint secretary home (F & CIT) dept, Writers Building.

So have submitted all the above mentioned documents and other relevant documents in triplicate to the Government of west bengal home (F & NRI) department by the month of march 2013

Hello Wdan - welcome to IndiaMike and congratulations on your marriage.

I, a male Indian citizen passport holder got married in Kolkata West Bengal to my wife, a Bangladeshi citizen passport holder on a tourist visa to India in Jan 2013.
The tourist visa is valid till 25 march 2013 and entered india on 19 jan 2013


We are now in 2014, so these dates don't make sense. Is your wife in India on her Tourist Visa, and is that visa still valid?

If so, she should apply to have her Tourist Visa converted to an Entry Visa. This application must be made online.

http://indianfrro.gov.in/frro/

http://indianfrro.gov.in/frro/menufrro.jsp?t4g=U2M8F465

The online system will automatically generate an appointment time for your wife with the FRRO.

Usually they will grant an extension of the existing Tourist Visa whilst they consider the application for conversion to Entry Visa.

Good luck.
Gone.
