The best time to visit Delhi is during the spring season from February to April. Delhi is resplendent with flowers at this time and the weather is pleasant, varying from 8ºC-24ºC.


Visa requirement

Citizens of all countries, except Nepal and Bhutan, require a valid visa for entering India, granted by Indian Missions abroad. Those wishing to visit a neighbouring country such as Sri Lanka or Nepal and then return to India, should obtain a double/multiple entry visa.


Health regulations

Valid yellow fever certification is mandatory for all persons who have been to Africa, South America, or Papua New Guinea during the six days before entering India.


Credit cards

Diners Club, Mastercard, American Express, Citibank and Visa are widely accepted by a large number of establishments including hotels, shops and airlines.



India is a shoppers’ paradise and offers a rich diversity of handicrafts, textiles, carpets, leather, gems, and jewellery. The travel counter at the Conference Venue can help you arrange transport for shopping excursions as well as to places worth seeing, in and around Delhi.
