Online Portal Form C Checkout is Mandatory in India for Landlords of Privately Owned Residences
The Ministry of Home Affairs in India, through the Bureau of Immigration and the Local Foreigners Regional Registration Offices, is requiring landlords of privately owned residences to update the departure or checkout dates for foreign national guests and tenants via the Online Portal Form C.
What is the New Requirement regarding Online Portal Form C Checkout?
Currently, only hotels, guest houses, and serviced apartments have been required to report the departure or checkout of foreign national guests and tenants. The procedure is to enter the information into the Online Portal Form C, managed by the Bureau of Immigration.
The new requirement is that the landlords of privately owned residences must also now report the departure or checkout of foreign national guests and tenants, using the same Online Portal Form C. This affects all transferees and their family members residing in India staying in hotels, guest houses, rented properties, or privately owned residences.
What Does This Mean?
For transferees changing residences or leaving India that have been residing at privately owned residences, clients should ensure that their landlord completes the departure or checkout information using the Online Portal Form C as required.
