I lost my Indian Visa, what should I do?
People who lose their passport with their valid Indian visa must contact their respective country's Embassy for their new replacement passport and apply for an exit visa with the Foreigner's Regional Registration Office (FRRO), Government of India. This process takes up to 2-3 business days. You cannot leave India without this visa. More information on obtaining an exit visa will be provided when you come to apply for a replacement passport.
