The  average temperature in Delhi in March is quite nice with 22°C (72 °F). With on average one rainy day per month in month and over 12 hours of sunshine, it should be rather pleasant to be here at this time of year (which is why we opted for this early date)

Visa Information

All foreign nationals entering India are required to possess a valid international travel document in the form of a national passport with a valid visa obtained from an Indian Mission or Post abroad.

For people from 162 countries there is a convenient electronic visa service available. This is by far the easiest way of obtaining a visa. It takes 72 hour to process. One can apply for an eBusiness visa here: eVisa Application 

For more information about the eVisa please visit: Online Portal For Visa Applications to India.

Alternatively one can apply for a business visa, where one states to have a meeting in India. This is a more lengthy process and requires you to visit the local embassy. For this visa you can also apply online, yet you will be required to visit the local Indian Embassy. 


The policy of AGIFORS for all their meetings are to have the registration fee for Airline staff and Academics as low as possible. The philosophy behind this is that academics are likely to enter new lines of thought into our field, and having a strong presence by airlines brings great value to both the vendors and the airlines.
It would therefore be great if
 your organisation could this year be one of our sponsors

Gold (USD 4000)

Host City


A symbol of the country’s rich past and thriving present, Delhi is a city where ancient and modern blend seamlessly together. It is a place that not only touches your pulse but even fastens it to a frenetic speed. Home to millions of dreams, the city takes on unprecedented responsibilities of realizing dreams bringing people closer and inspiring their thoughts.


Just a century ago, the British moved the seat of their empire from Kolkata to Delhi. And it has been the Capital of India ever since. Now a thriving, cosmopolitan metro, the city has much to celebrate as it has already reached the milestone of completing 100 years as a Capital. With a history that goes back many centuries, Delhi showcases an ancient culture and a rapidly modernising country. Dotted with monuments there is much to discover here. The seat of many powerful empires in the past, its long history can be traced in its many carefully-preserved monuments, ancient forts and tombs.


All this is combined with the best features of a modern city such as a metro system, bustling markets and fabulous eating places. The past and the present meld seamlessly together, making centuries-old monuments a part of the city’s daily life. Delhi is very much a history’s child. The story of the city is as old as the epic Mahabharata, when the town was known as Indraprastha, where Pandavas used to live. Over the centuries, eight more cities came alive adjacent to Indraprastha: Lal Kot, Siri, Dinpanah, Quila Rai Pithora, Ferozabad, Jahanpanah, Tughlakabad and Shahjahanabad. Many empires rose to the heights of their power and were destroyed here. Among the prominent dynasties which made Delhi their capital were the Tughlaqs, the Khiljis and the Mughals.
