User Registration for Form 'C' and Form 'S'

Introduction of FRRO Form C:

Accommodations in India highlight the requirements for all foreign nationals who need a place during their stay in the country. Government-issued IDs, passports, visas, and contracts between the host and the guests are mandatory.

If foreign nationals will stay more than 180 days in India, the Indian Government requires foreigners to register in FRRO. Foreigners have to register fourteen days upon arrival in India. Locals who manage accommodation and accept foreign guests have to fill out C-Forms.

In compliance with the Foreigners Act 1946 and Registration of Foreigners Rules 1992, a person who owns property across India and accommodates foreign guests with monetary value must submit FRRO Form C. The order states the need to register foreigners upon arrival in the country for security, safety, and tracking purposes.

Hosts who manage lodging houses, guest houses, Dharamshala, homestays, hotels, resorts, or individual houses and provide accommodation 24 hours upon arrival of foreign guests in India are mandatory to submit C-Forms. It is applicable for both short-stay or long-term guests.

If the hosts and guests fail to comply with the requirements, they are subject to paying fines and penalties or a minimum of five years imprisonment.

Note: registration process may vary from one state to another. We recommend foreign nationals contact the FRRO office near them.
