Missing crucial documents on the day of your trip can be a trying situation. Whether it’s understanding the documentation you need or the unique entry requirements for the country you’re visiting, we’ve got you covered.

Documents for Domestic Flights 

For domestic travel in India, please carry your ticket and a valid proof-of-identity document so we can issue your boarding pass with ease.

Acceptable proof of identification documents: 

  • Passport
  • Voter ID card 
  • Aadhaar card
  • PAN card 
  • Driver’s licence
  • ID card with photo issued by the central or state government, public sector undertakings, local bodies, or public limited companies.

  • Nationalized bank passbook with an attested photograph.
  • Pension card/pension documents with a photograph.
  • Disability ID card/handicapped medical certificate issued by the respective State/UT governments or administrations.

Proof of identity and travel documents stored in DigiLocker are accepted at airports in India if you do not wish to carry physical documents.

Infants and minors do not require proof of identity when travelling with parents or guardians that carry valid IDs. Unaccompanied minors must carry one of the proof-of-identity documents listed above.

If a traveller is not able to present any of the listed documents, then a group 'A' gazetted officer of the central or state government can issue an identity certificate. The officer must submit the duly attested certificate on the official letterhead with a photograph of the passenger.

Documents for International Flights

If you are flying internationally, please carry a valid passport and visa, along with entry permits and necessary health certificates. Also, ensure that embarkation forms, if required, are completed and submitted to customs and immigration authorities before boarding the aircraft.
