Several airlines all over the world have frequent flights into India. It would be the best to book your flight over internet well in advance. You will get a cheaper price if you book early. There are also some Indian websites where you can book your flights, they offer quite good deals and are relatively cheaper since they normally charge in the Indian Rupees. Some of these Indian websites are www.makemytrip.com; www.cleartrip.com, www.yatra.com. If you wish, it is also possible for us to book a flight on your behalf.
Normally when you join us as a 'Silver Volunteer' you will fly to New Delhi and arrive at the Indira Gandhi International Airport. However depending upon the plan we schedule for you, sometimes it may also be possible that we suggest you to directly fly to Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi or Kolkata (unless you prefer to fly into New Delhi and then take a train onwards).
A Visa is needed to enter India. A suitable Visa (normally for 6 months duration) will be granted to you in most of the countries.

We will be quite happy to assist you if you need our guidance, so you can fill up your visa form correctly.
