FOREIGNERS BRANCH

 

The Foreigners Branch was established along with the other CID branches in 1966. Its functions relate to registration of foreigners, extension of their visas, Indian citizenship applications, enforcement of the provisions of the Foreigners Act etc., keeping track of death/missing reports of foreigners and various other matters pertaining to foreign nationals. The importance of this branch is evident from the fact that thousands of foreign nationals visit the state as tourists.
