About Moving to India from New Jersey
If you are moving abroad as a single or moving the whole family, relocation to India can be an exciting cultural experience. Whether you’re taking an exciting career opportunity, just adventurous or returning home. Whatever your reason for moving to India may be, you need to know there are a lot of differences between the way things work in New Jersey and in India.
You may have questions that need to be answered and decisions that need to be made that include what to take and what to leave behind. And of course the most popular question, “what is the cost of living like?” Being prepared for the relocation ahead and having the right information you need to settle into a foreign country can reduce unexpected relocation frustration that can occur after you arrive.
India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world with rich cultural history and traditions. The landscape of India is diverse from the Himalayan Mountains in the east to the tropical rainforest in the South. The climate can be described as tropical monsoon with very warm tropical climate in the summers and dry winters. June through September is typically the monsoon season followed by a post monsoon season October through November.
There are 22 languages spoken throughout India but English is widely spoken for practical purposes. India holds a rich religious diversity with Hindus constituting the majority with 80.5%, 13.4% are Muslims, followed by Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains and others.
India has endless choices for entertainment and adventure to explore. Most inner city residents enjoy regular access to the cinema, clubs, cultural festivals, and museums. Beaches are also popular destinations for tourist and locals in India. Goa and Andhra Pradesh are the hottest tourist spots offering long stretches of beaches sprawled over 1000km. Some host unexplored virgin beaches with palm trees and natural landscape. National parks, wildlife reserves, the Taj Mahal and many other historical monuments, temples and museums are only some of the many things you can enjoy in India.
About Moving to India
Before traveling to India you must obtain a visa before arrival even if you are there for tourism. Visa fees run between $95 and $779 depending on the length of time you plan on visiting. So plan ahead and make sure you have the appropriate documents. More information is available to you in the section below regarding visas.
The cost of living is very low in India which may be an advantage for those moving to India for a career opportunity. The average cost of a one bedroom apartment in the city center will run you $173 per month and ranges to $425 for a 3 bedroom apartment. It can cost you a lot less outside of major cities. Apartments and houses can be rented furnished or unfurnished and offer the same amenities and living conditions as you would expect from New Jersey or the US.
The cost of food and utilities are much less than what you are use to in New Jersey. An average 3 course meal for two people in a mid-quality restaurant, you can expect to pay around $10.50.
Transportation is affordable and offers choices of taxis, trains, buses, private car rentals and cars with drivers to hire, as well as rickshaws. As the buses are often overcrowded and do not run on time, it is highly recommended to use the railway or get a taxi when possible.
Getting a Working Visa in India
If you are moving to India for a job offer, you need to choose either a business visa or work permit. Business visas are issued for a period of three months to five years. Obtaining a visa for your business visit to India means that you will first need to have a sponsor approval note, which must be issued officially from the Indian company who is sponsoring your time in India. Besides that you need an introductory letter from the employer in your country of residence. This visa will only allow you to perform routine business activities such as attend a conference and hold meeting with clients. You are not allowed to be employed. If you are relocating or moving for employment you need a work permit.
In order to get an Indian work permit you need to have a working contract with your signature and the signature of your employer, including an invitation that explains your employment offer. Just keep in mind that if you change companies then you need to file for a new work permit. To find out more about work or business visa, you can visit the India Visa center and download the appropriate paperwork.

Tips for obtaining your visa for your move to India
Tip 1: K. Matthews moved from New Jersey to India one year ago
“If you are applying for a longer stay than six months you need to submit a valid passport and proof of residence. Make sure you have a signed lease agreement that is covered under rent control laws on your place of residence or you will not have proper proof of residence.”
Tip 2: M. Harburn moved from New Jersey to India ten months ago
I contacted my local embassy to make sure that I had understood the requirements correctly. Sure, I read as much as could find online but I just wasn’t sure how completely up to date the information was.
Tip 3: S. Nellis moved from New Jersey to India four months ago
“Ensure all business visa letters are detailed and accurate – for business travelers or residents for employment purposes, if you are applying for an Indian business visa, you must ensure that all the letters are accurate. Ensure that each letter contains the full name of the passport holder, the passport number, the travel dates, the purpose of the visit and the visa type required. The letters should always be on company letter head. Formal letters are required by the Indian embassy. They take accuracy serious in India.”

Tips for moving from New Jersey to India
Tip 1: F. Fuller moved from New Jersey to India one year ago
“Be careful negotiating housing cost or any other purchase agreement – you may get charged an excessive amount of money if the seller/owner knows that you are coming from a native English speaking country. Get a feel for prices before you negotiate anything. Once you do that then you can negotiate the right price and worry a little less”
Tip 2:J. Mallot moved from New Jersey 2 years ago
“One of the thing you got to get use to is buying and drinking bottled water- most of the water supply is un-drinkable. I had to get use to a few small changes but kind of thing now doesnt really bother me”
Tip 3: M. Jones moved from New York to Ireland six months ago
It turned out that the move itself was the easiest part of the whole exercise. I found being away from my friends really difficult and so joining some social clubs when I arrived really helped me start to feel at home.
Tip 4: M. Putz moved from New York to India four months ago
“Use local trusted banks- Not necessarily international banks. I found out that the service is far better for local banks and will make it easier to manage finances locally and they offer door to door service (literally). Leading local banks are the ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank. These banks offer a wide range of services and are totally customer centric.
