usa – Travel to India after H1B expiration

I am relocating back to India from USA. My H1B expired on 5th April, 2021 and with recapture days my last working day in US was 11th April. I am planning to travel on 17th April.

Will there be any concerns as I am traveling post my H1B expiration? Also any issues while taking off from USA or on entry in India?

Please advice.

customs and immigration – Bringing more than 200 cigarettes from India to UK

The UK tobacco excise duty at the time of writing is

16.5% of the retail price plus £196.42 per thousand cigarettes

the latter of which is pro rata, so it works out to

16.5% of the retail price plus £3.93 on a packet of 20

As far as I can tell, when you declare tobacco, unlike other items, you are liable for duty on all of the tobacco, not just that over your personal allowance. It’s possible that with the amount being only somewhat over the allowance, HMRC might not bother to impose the duty, due to it being somewhat complicated to calculate (what’s the retail price of foreign cigarettes?), but you shouldn’t count on that.

If it were me, I’d just bring 200 (or fewer) cigarettes, confidently walk through the green channel, and then look harder to see if I could find somewhere in the UK that sells them. And remember that the cigarettes in your open pack also count, so be careful if those might bring you over 200.

us citizens – Overstay In India

** This is not an official answer, I may be wrong.

With OCI/PIO card, you can stay in India as long as you want. There was a rule after every 180 days, you need to register in local Police Station about extension of your stay, however since 2014 (with Modi Govt) they abolished the rule. However I dont have much idea about Tourist visa requirements for overstay.

Me/My wife(Malaysian citizen and Indian PIO card holder) traveled to India in 2013, we did overstay of little over 180 days, while returning back to the US, we were questioned and fined. Luckily we were little early at the airport, that we did not miss our flight for questioning and fine process.

I would suggest check all resources online, if needed apply for OCI/PIO card. OCI/PIO card mostly does not have overstay limitations.

Do you think the Indian authorities can do this kind of practice?

legal – Why are satellite phones strictly banned in India?

Amateur (ham) radio is certainly legal in India and takes place regularly.
Not being from India, I can only offer an electronics expert’s possible explanation.

The vast majority of voice ham radio – VHF, UHF and the HF spectrum – operate by either a ‘line of sight’ or ‘skip’ propagation method. Additionally, it’s fairly uncommon for ham radio operators to communicate with someone directly overhead – they nearly always are contacting and conversing with someone located at some distance on the horizon from them. These communications leave a clear path which is subject to easy intercept (monitoring).

While hams do use satellite communications, there are relatively few ham satellites and the communications going through them is easily monitored. While satellite phones also use the same radio waves, their communication is intended (and always takes place) with a repeater above the horizon.

What’s the meaning of all that? In a nutshell, it’s possible for a sat phone to be down in a wide hole (or deep valley), communicating through a satellite passing directly overhead. The ‘line of sight’ in these cases would not extend to the horizon to any degree. Therefore, these conversations are extremely difficult to monitor, with the notable exception being electronic intelligence (ELINT) aircraft flying overhead or intelligence satellites.

I’m not aware of India having an intelligence satellite or the necessary infrastructure to easily decrypt and intercept the satellite phones’ conversations. Know that I’m not implying that India doesn’t have the technical knowhow, but I believe that they have much bigger fish to fry and eliminating the legal use of satellite phones is probably an easier method of keeping comms where they can be intercepted and intelligence gleaned from them acted upon.

That’s my 2 cents and I’m certainly subject to being wrong about the above conclusions.

shipping – If I were to ship a package betwen India and US which would be most efficient route?

Ever since the ‘Ever given’ epsiode happened, I found myself thinking that I know next to nothing about shipping. So I tried to find out how commercial shipping works between the two countries. Now what I got were websites of DHL and Fedex and while each of them have a quote it doesn’t necessarily tells you how things work. In both websites, many of the terms are pretty vague, for instance, it is anywhere between 8-15 days. I searched around a bit more and got to know that most such big ships do port-to-port rather than doing A-B as that is most profitable. I am sure there are probably some routes which would be more favorable than others. Does anybody have any idea of what possible routes and how much distance they would have cover. To take a concrete example, we have Ever given https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ever_Given , now it seems that the ship moves at 22.8 knots or 42 kmph which is comparable to Indian Railways. It also shared that it carries something like 20k containers with probably bigger containers at the bottom and smaller containers at the top. It would be great if somebody shared some hypothetical or actual routes that they know that shipping companies take to travel to and fro. Here I am looking for only time and distance between ports. I do know in an actual scenario, one would also have to take into account inland transportation which actually adds its own complexity in both countries, I am discounting or removing that fully.

Looking forward to some sort of answer.
