Packing:

Many airlines have a restrictive weight or size allowance, so check with your airline before you leave. You should have enough warm clothing for your flight and subsequent stay in Jaipur for the winter months.
Bring one set of your national attire as you might need it at functions in the University.
Find out what you are allowed and are not allowed to bring into India, e.g. food items.
Most airlines allow 20 kg of checked luggage, but some offer 23 kg. If you exceed the checked luggage allowance, you will have to pay a surcharge based on every kilo of additional weight, which is quite expensive.
If you want to bring a laptop or any other audio equipment, you should also bring a receipt showing when and where it was bought.

Temperature

Temperature ranges between 30 to 45 degree Celsius during summers and 10 to 25 degree Celsius during winters. Here the winter season starts around November so the warm material (blankets, quilts, woolens etc.) must be brought accordingly.

Arrival in Jaipur – Jaipur International Airport

After landing at Jaipur International Airport, you will have to proceed to the Immigration Desk where you will have to show your passport and visa. You might be asked for other documents, so please keep all your documents handy.

The First Few Weeks in Jaipur

The University will have an Orientation Program for the students, which will familiarize you with various aspects of the University and Hostel.
Cash: It is important that you have enough money to last until you have opened a bank account, which can take a little time. Around Rs. 5000 to Rs. 10,000 in cash is enough to cover the costs of your first few days.

Opening an Indian Bank Account:

  • For opening a Bank Account in Jaipur, you may need the following documents:
  • Copy of Passport
  • Unconditional Offer Letter
  • Proof of your address at the University and overseas
  • Letter from your sponsor confirming your funding
  • Passport size photographs
  • any other documents requested by the bank.
