Amit Shah to Inaugurate ‘Fast Track Immigration Trusted Traveller Programme’ at Delhi’s IGI Airport

NEW DELHI: Union Home Minister Amit Shah will inaugurate a landmark initiative aimed at revolutionizing the travel experience for Indian nationals and Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) cardholders. The Fast Track Immigration-Trusted Traveller Programme (FTI-TTP), to be launched at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, is set to streamline and expedite the immigration process for pre-verified travelers.

Enhancing Travel Efficiency and Convenience

The FTI-TTP is designed to significantly enhance the travel experience for Indians returning from abroad and OCIs entering India. By making the immigration process faster, easier, and more secure, this program underscores the government’s commitment to improving travel convenience and efficiency.

How the FTI-TTP Works

Eligible individuals must apply online, providing their biometrics (fingerprint and facial image) and other required information as specified in the application form. The application process involves several key steps:

  1. Online Application: Applicants need to fill out the online form and submit necessary details.
  2. Biometrics Submission: Applicants must provide their biometrics at designated international airports in India or the nearest Foreigners Regional Registration Officer (FRRO) office as per a scheduled appointment.
  3. Identity Verification: Identity verification will be done through mobile OTP and email verification.
  4. Processing Fee: A non-refundable processing fee of Rs 2,000 for adult Indian nationals, Rs 1,000 for minor Indian nationals, and $100 for OCI cardholders is required.

Application and Registration Process

Once the online application and payment are completed, the application will undergo necessary verifications. Approved applicants will receive a notification to schedule an appointment for biometric submission. Successful registration will be confirmed once biometrics are provided and verified.

Key Requirements for FTI-TTP Membership

  • Passport Validity: Applicant’s passport must have a minimum validity of six months at the time of application.
  • Residential Address: Current residential address must be provided to avoid rejection of the application.
  • Membership Validity: FTI-TTP membership will be valid for up to five years or until the passport’s validity, whichever comes first.

Impact on Travel Experience

The FTI-TTP is poised to significantly reduce wait times at immigration counters, providing a smoother and more efficient travel experience. By pre-verifying travelers and ensuring secure and quick processing, this program aims to facilitate seamless travel for eligible individuals.

Government’s Commitment to Enhancing Travel

This initiative reflects the government’s dedication to leveraging technology to enhance public services. The FTI-TTP not only benefits frequent travelers but also aligns with global standards for travel convenience and security.

Conclusion

The launch of the Fast Track Immigration-Trusted Traveller Programme by Union Home Minister Amit Shah marks a significant step towards modernizing India’s immigration processes. As the FTI-TTP rolls out, eligible Indian nationals and OCI cardholders can look forward to a more streamlined and efficient travel experience, underscoring the government’s commitment to innovation and efficiency in public services.
