Dharamshala: With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic worldwide, and the imposition of curfew and lockdown all over India, many Tibetans holding foreign passport may be stranded in the country. Here in Himachal, Kangra’s district authority has advised submission of the list of all Tibetans who have entered India on or after February 15, 2020. Therefore, all Tibetans falling under said category should register themselves with our Security office (Mr Kalsang of Desung office @ 9882255209) and provide the following information at the earliest:
- Full Name:
- Country of Citizenship:
- Passport Number:
- Passport validity:
- Date of Arrival in India:
- Date of visa expiry:
- Country visited prior to arrival in India:
- Local Address:
- Local Phone contact:
Tibetans with foreign passport in other regions in India and Nepal, who had entered the regions on or after 15th February, are also requested to register themselves with the nearest Tibetan Settlement office and provide the above-listed information at the earliest. The Settlement offices should file the list to the local FRRO / SP office.
As per the directives issued by the Central and local government of India, one could face penalty including imprisonment for not reporting your arrival in India after 15th February. Tibetan administration and local Tibetan settlement offices may not be able to help secure visa extension and exit permit later if registration is not done as per the directives.
