Three years ago I made such a move. Being retired I looked easy and the visa situation seemed ok. Getting a 6 months visa was easy and I was told, unofficially that thousands of western people do it. Just leave the country after 6 month do a border run and come right back. Then the government changed the rules drastically. No return for 2 months and only a 3 months second visa. That can change again real sasy. Also a sim card was very difficult to get. I gave up after the first 6 months and will never go back.

It's unlikely the OP is serious, having not returned to discuss responses after posting three months ago. To anyone who is serious about moving to India: a trial stay before making permanent plans is a good idea. However, every country is protective of its own citizens. You are not going to find a job in India unless you have special skills. Indian companies have to hire their own citizens first. Look for a job before you move there which will transfer you to India, or take a volunteer position with a charitable organization. Also, you should investigate visas before you do anything.

jgeuss posted Jehovah's Witnesses in India- English Congregations on the India forum on April 13, 2014:
My wife and I are Jehovah's Witnesses in our early '50s with many decades of theocratic experience and are responding to the call in January 15, 2014 Watchtower to move where the need is greater in a warm climate, due to health reasons. I have a rare skin disease (not communicable) that requires I have a beard. From experience, I know that some cultures view men with beards with suspicion. Is there an English Congregation with a need for qualified brothers in India? If so, would they welcome my wife and I?

Greetings of the day, Which model car is it? and im pretty sure you could sell of your car back home and get a new one here which is of the same of equivalent. The most cost effective way!

Hi say that the car cost you US$ 1000.00 the relocation cost to India will be about US$ 7000.00 the duty will be 100 % plus fine and Penalty which also could be up to 100 % Also note that Just because you bought the car for US$ 1000 does not mean duty is calculated on that, you will need to get the Manufacturers invoice, (dealers invoice will not do) and then depending how old it is you get depreciation on the manufacturers cost, if memory serves me right is 12% the first year, 10% second year, 8% third year and so on, also the car cant be very old as it needs to be atleaset euro 3 compliant
