Indians flying abroad not to fill departure card from tomorrow

New Delhi: Indians flying abroad will not be required to fill departure cards from tomorrow.

However, those going out of the country via rail, seaport and land immigration checkposts will have to fill the embarkation card.

"It has been decided to discontinue the practice of filling up of departure card by Indians at all international airports with effect from July 1, 2017," an order issued by the Union home ministry said.

The move is aimed at ensuring hassle-free movement of Indians going abroad.
