Q.1177 Pregnant lady overstaying her tourist visa T1

Question: Hi My wife is a Canadian citizen and she has a 1 year multiple-entry tourist visa { T 1 } valid from Jan 2018 to Jan 2019. She came to India on Feb 2018 for a family visit . However her doctor found out that she is pregnant after she started feeling very tired all day along. Accordingly she has been advised a complete bed rest. My question is that her 180 day tourist visa period is expiring on 12 August and she wont be able to fly back home by that date....she will have to overstay her visa for 1-2 months to be fit for flying. We are considering tickets for 19th September 2018 when she will be accompanied by her mother on the flight. What is the most appropriate course of action on our behalf ?? We have received variable answers from multiple resources leaving us confused. I visited FRRO online but was not sure what services to apply to in our case. We want to make sure she is able to leave India without any hassles and legal implications. Please tell us the proper steps to be taken. Presently she is staying with my parents in India. I am in Canada and i wont be able to fly to India to finish the paperwork, if any. Kindly advise. Answer: The Ministry of Home Affairs has delegated powers such as Visa extensions to FRRO. My suggestion would be to get a medical certificate from her doctor advising against travel and visit the FRRO office serving the jurisdiction where your wife is staying. FRRO will help extending visa or refer you to the appropriate office of the Ministry of Home Affairs. Do not take overstay of visa lightly. You have ample time to get visa extended.
