Consular Duty Service Out of Hours

If you require emergency assistance from the Embassy, please contact us on: +91 (11) 49403200.

If you call outside normal working hours, you will be asked to leave a message on the answering machine. The answering machine is monitored regularly, and the Duty Officer will contact you as soon as possible. Please ensure the message contains the following information:

  • Your name
  • The nature of your problem
  • Where you are now
  • Your contact details (mobile phone number or phone number of where you’re staying)

The answer machine is cheeked regularly but you may also wish to call the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Dublin directly at 00353-1-4082000 if there is a genuine emergency.

If you have lost your passport, please note that you must obtain an exit visa from the Indian authorities at the Foreigner Regional Registration Office before you can exit India. This can only be done during normal working hours and therefore it is not possible to issue an emergency travel document at the weekend.
