Delta Ticket How To Book Emergency Flights From USA to INDIA

Delta ticket Bottoms up – This word makes complete sense now that our lives are no different than a glass of drink which shows the wrong side up, launching us all in a pell-mell play. Delta ticket All motion, little notion! COVID-19 has survived catastrophic for almost everyone, right from business tycoons to daily wage earners. However, we often neglect to scratch the surface to know the rough patch being faced by Indian passport holders who are stuck in the USA for tourist (B1/B2), study (F1), or work visa (H1B, L1). 

Eligibility Criteria 

Until the restrictions on international flight services are lifted, not everyone can book these emergency flights. You will require a well-grounded reason which shall be checked and duly verified by the embassy. The objects can be one of the 7 given below

1. Lay Offs

If you are an Indian holding an H1B visa (or L1) and have lost your job, your presence won’t be termed “unlawful” to begin with. H1B operators have been given the grace of 60 days, but in case you have run out of that time, we’ll suggest you leave the country using one of these flights or go for a situation change to B2 from H1B. Then again, the previous point is worth considering rather than going for the quarters because the H1B visa can always be filed from India whenever you find an organization in the US.

2. Visa Expiry Issue (Non PR + Short-Term Holders of Visa)

If you are someone who came to the country to nurse your newly-born grandkid or to give time with your family for a short duration and your visa has expired, you can take one of these evacuation flights. You can consider extending your B2 visa as well but we’ll suggest you take a flight in case you’ve stayed there for more than 8 months now. 

3.Medical Urgency

In case you are facing a calamitous medical situation where the salts in your medications aren’t being found or likewise, you are eligible to take one of these flights.

4.Pregnant Woman or Elderly People

Pregnant women (any month) or aged people (no exclusive demarcation given by the embassy, but 56+ works) can opt to take this flight.

5.Family Member’s Demise

You are authorized to take the emergency flight if you have grieved the loss of a “closed one” and want to attend their funeral.


If you are a tourist whose visa is going to/has departed, you can go ahead and book the departure flight.


If you are a junior and your educational institute is closed, you can take a flight back to USA. This is also for the learners having F1 visas.  

Please note that OCI cardholders are authorized to travel to India only by Special Flights that do not come under the emergency evacuation flights being run by Air India. Also, you’ll only be permitted to travel on the specially arranged flights if you are an OCI holder and-   

  1. You are a minor born to Indian nationals overseas.
  2.  You have a family emergency, says the loss of a closed one.
  3. Several of them are an OCI holder while the other is of Indian nationality and have a stable place to reside in India.
  4. University students who have fathers in India of Indian nationality.

Registration Process

If you are a qualified candidate, you’ll have to register yourself on the website of the Indian Embassy of Washington. Kindly note that this site caters to all the requests and works for all the people in the USA, irrespective of where they live.

Select “COVID-19 – Registration Form” on the website if you want to catch one of the departure flights being currently run or “COVID 19 – Registration Form for OCI Cardholder” if you satisfy the requirements for OCI special flights. According to the Embassy guidance, each person needs to fill the form separately.

If your registration form gets approved, the embassy will reach you directly via mail and will give you two/three dates to choose from.  


All customers will have to bear the cost of the flight themselves. It accounts for someplace near INR 1 Lakh for an individual to reserve a seat on the departure flight.
