Expected any easy exit out of New Delhi on our way to Sri Lanka. I thought we would be cleared to go as we have a multiple entry Visa, endorsed by India High Commission in Canada. Pat was ahead of me in a different line and cleared to go. Unfortunately I was not cleared to go. They said we had to register in Delhi within 14 days. Unknown to me. Considering we were within the 14 day period the officer wouldn’t allow me to pass through. He shouted at Pat to return. He demanded we stay behind until the office opens the next day. We would loose a lot of money with nonrefundable hotel and airline tickets to Sri Lanka. Our discussion with several other officers permitted us exit to the connections area. We could not return to India and not permitted to enter on our return from Sri Lanka for our connecting flight.
A harrowing experience. We must figure out a way to bypass Delhi to catch our international flight out of Sri Lanka and back to Canada.
