Create the User-id/Password by registering on the portal. (https://indianfrro.gov.in/eservices/eRegistration.jsp)
A valid Email ID or mobile number in India is mandatory for obtaining the One Time Password (OTP). Foreigners should register with their own email ID OR provide a valid Indian Mobile Number for receiving the OTP and other status updates/alerts at various stages of processing.
Once the user-id/password is successfully created, the foreign national can submit their online application by selecting the appropriate service and uploading the requisite documents.
The application form should be filled carefully and any errors should be avoided. The necessary documents and photograph should also be uploaded online in the designated format for the form to be submitted successfully
The application will be scrutinized by Visa Officers only if the application has been successfully submitted. Upon scrutiny, necessary instructions with regard to the application i.e. fee payment, correction of selected/desired service, re-uploading of documents etc would be conveyed to the foreigner through email/SMS alerts.
The foreigner would be intimated to deposit the requisite fee, if any, for the service. The fee has to be deposited online through the Bank Payment gateway available on the portal. Th amount of fee would be intimated through email/SMS alerts.
The foreigner can track the status of the application through our portal. For any clarification, our Support Centre can be contacted.
Upon Grant/Rejection of service, the same would be intimated to the foreigner. His/her RC/RP etc would be sent through email or it can also be downloaded from our portal by signing in.
The foreigner can approach the concerned Civil Authority i.e. FRRO/FRO office directly in case of any exigency/emergency. Upon satisfaction of the case, the services can also be granted directly at the FRRO/FRO level. Make sure that services granted are electronic and not manual. You may face hurdles at the Immigration Check Posts in case of manual services.
