Exit and re-entry requirements

Obtaining a Tax Clearance or Exemption Certificate

  • Subject to notified exceptions, any person not domiciled in India (who visits India in connection with business, profession or employment and who derives income from any source in India), can leave India only after getting a "No Objection Certificate" from the tax authorities to do so. The tax authorities shall give such a certificate when the person submits an appropriate undertaking from his employer / payer of income, in respect of payment of taxes due from such person in India.

  • However, this requirement does not apply to a person who is not domiciled in India but is a foreign tourist on his visit to India, which is not connected with business or profession or employment in India.

  • Persons domiciled in India are not required to obtain tax clearance but need to only furnish their PAN along with information regarding purpose of visit and estimated period of stay outside India.

In case of persons domiciled in India, if the circumstances warrant, the tax authorities can direct such person to obtain an appropriate tax clearance PIO Card Scheme.
