India launches new Fast Track Immigration Trusted Traveller Programme

On 22 June 2024, the government of India launched the Trusted Traveller Programme (TTP), which seeks to enhance efficiency and security at Indian borders by automating entry/immigration processes for qualifying travelers seeking admission to India. The TTP is being rolled out in two phases. On 22 June 2024, the first phase was implemented for eligible Indian nationals and foreign nationals holding OCI (i.e., Overseas Citizen of India) cards. In order to enter India under the TTP, interested individuals must first apply online via the government's website and submit their biometrics.
