The space of global mobility has transformed over the past few years and with more and more changes along the way, it remains ever critical to be well informed with the rules and regulations of Indian immigration. Our global mobility team at Consortia Legal works in a cohesive manner with the employment and corporate teams and tax professionals to ensure our clients and business contacts receive concise, cost-effective, and bespoke solutions.
Indian immigration regime is mainly administered by two key ministries of the federal Government, namely, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA). The MEA governs the pre-arrival formalities such as issuing visas through various High Commissions, Embassies and Consulates across the globe. The MHA on the other hand deals with formalities that are required to be completed within India such as extensions, registrations and other post-arrival formalities via its network of local Foreign Regional Registration Offices/ Foreign Registration Offices.
We advise our clients on a range of matters including pre- and post-arrival strategy advice and formalities as well as other applications such as exit permits, re-entry permits, police verifications, OCI cards, repatriation formalities, police clearance certificates, legalisations and apostilles in India. We work with several foreign service providers, law firms, immigration specialists, accountancy practices, relocation companies and consultancies to support and assist them with their immigration requirements.
