NEW DELHI: Union home minister Amit Shah inaugurated the ‘Fast Track Immigration Trusted Traveller Programme‘ (FTI-TTP) at Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport on Friday. This initiative aims to revolutionize the travel experience for Indian nationals and Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) cardholders by making it faster, easier, and more secure.
The program is a step towards modernizing India’s immigration system and improving travel efficiency for Indian citizens and OCI cardholders.

Key details of the program ‘Fast Track Immigration Trusted Traveller Programme’:

  • Objective: The FTI-TTP aims to streamline the immigration process for pre-verified Indian nationals and OCI cardholders, enhancing travel convenience and security.

  • Application process: Applicants must apply online, submit biometrics (fingerprints and facial image), and pay a non-refundable processing fee of Rs 2,000 for adults, Rs 1,000 for minors, or $100 for OCI cardholders.
  • Biometric registration: Biometric data can be submitted at designated international airports in India or the nearest FRRO office, following a scheduled appointment.
  • Membership validity: Membership is valid for a maximum of five years or until the passport’s validity expires, whichever comes first.
  • Passport requirement: Applicants must possess a passport with a minimum validity of six months.
  • Information verification: Providing a current residential address is mandatory to avoid application rejection, and false information or failure to capture biometrics can result in disqualification.
