ATITHI app for international travelers to declare customs baggage and currency

Nov 5, 2019,

Smt Nirmala Sitharaman, Hon’ble Union Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs, Government of India has launched ATITHI – a moble app for facilitating arriving international passengers by electronic filing of Customs baggage and currency declarations.

With ATITHI, Passengers can use this app to file declaration of dutiable items and currency with the Indian Customs even before boarding the flight to India. 

According to Finance Minister, ATITHI app would create a tech savvy image of India Customs and would encourage tourism and business travel to India.

ATITHI is available on both, iOS and Android.


Suggestion for improving Ease of Doing Business - ATITHI App.
Good Start. A suggestion. Many ATITHI's will be weary of installing a new app, especially when it is in-frequently used. If the same app interface is provided as a online web portal and details can be filled online, it would be much more useful. Customs and Central Excise can also tie up with airlines and sent a link to the ATITHI at the time of airline ticket booking or boarding the aircraft or landing so that the ATITHI can straight away go to the website login page and register/ fill-up the details without the need for installing an app.
