It is now mandatory for inbound travellers to declare if they are carrying a satellite phone into India. This can be declared in a new column on the immigration card. Satellite phones can only be used in India after a licence has been acquired from the Department of Telecommunications.

Global Telesat Communications encourages all customers travelling internationally with their sat phones to check on local regulations before their departure.
