I have just returned from Delhi airport after a 41 hour return trip that has ruined my 2 week holiday.
We obtained the visa through the london office of the Indian embassy visa department.
We arrived yesterday after a flight from the UK via Dubai to DElhi only to be told when we arrived there was a problem with my visa and I was not allowed in. My Fiancee's visa was fine even though I got these at the same time
After 5 hours in Delhi I was escorted like a criminal back onto a flight back to Dubai. I was not allowed my passport and at Dubai after an hour of discussion I was eventually given my passport and boarding ticket back to the UK.
My 2 week tour fully paid for is wasted and even though the visa was looked at in Manchester and Dubai, there were no issues mentioned.
I was at the London visa office, paid for both visa's and it is clear some clerical person messed my visa up and this has now cost me dearly.
I am more than annoyed with the situation and though my holiday is ruined and the last 2 days has been a nightmare I think everyone should be warned of this.
Apparently the Indian system has so many problems that this does happen and it is a joke that nothing could be done to sort the problem out at the airport.
I am never going to forget this and just want it to be a warning to everyone. Check, re check and check again your visa to make sure you are 110% sure it is correct as I would not wished what me and my fiancée have had to go through to anyone
