  • Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend FUDCon? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?

Yes, I need VISA.
Maximum of 5 days if I apply for tourist VISA but I don't have experience with confference VISA to India.
If I am not wrong, High Commision of India, check for government approved invitation letter.
(Please check this requirement).

  • Include any additional, relevant information.

Department of Immigration Officers question me when I coming and going back Kolkata in early 2014 for a Mozilla event. Basically they wanted to know whether I travel to Chennai. I came with tourist VISA which is prety easy for us to get within 3 days.

They are doing their duty but that's one of the reason I take direct flight to Mumbdai insteam of having one-stop.
Due to the recent issues, I avoid Malaysian Airlines. ;-)

We will then send the invitation letter.

Please note:

Accommodation is provided on the twin sharing basis for the duration of the conference, ie. check-in on 25th June and check-out on 29th June 2015. Expenses for any other days shall be levied on the occupant(you). In case, you need a room for yourself, you'd need to bear half of the room fare.
