A film visa is issued for the purpose of filming a feature film / reality TV and web show / series, advertising on TV Shows / Shows and Web Shows / Series in India. The application for such cases will be decided on a case-by-case basis only after approval of the consulate.
It will not be necessary to register with FRRO or FRO if the stay does not exceed 180 days. If the applicant comes to India with the intention of staying for more than 180 days, the applicant should register with FRRO or FRO within two weeks.
A documentary film license may take up to 8 weeks from the filing date of the application.
Failure to comply with the above points will result in the request for new documents, which may involve additional costs!
