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. This news comes after a British man was arrested earlier this year in India for carrying a satellite phone. Similar arrests have since occurred involving travellers who were not aware of the laws regarding the use of satellite communications. Global Telesat Communications encourages all customers travelling internationally with their sat phones to check on local regulations before their departure.
