Pupils will also be required to pay for an India Tourist Visa. This costs £42.50 and will be due in November. Pupils will be told exactly how to fill out the visa form under staff supervision. Pupils will require 2 passport photos of 2inch by 2 inch. These are hopefully going to be done in school.
Pupils will not require a lot of spending money. This is because all the excursions are included in the price of the trip. However, pupils should bring with them a maximum of £100 . It wil be very hard for them to spend this.
The current exchange rate is 71 rupees to the pound. Rupees can not be bought in the UK so cash will be exchanged when we are in India.
