What You Need To Know About Visiting USA from India

The great American experience is a fascinating one for travellers from around the globe and we Indians are no exception. From coastal cities to rugged mountains, it has got everything that makes for a vibrant holiday experience. According to data published by Statista, there will be a drastic rise in the number of visitors to the U.S.A from India by 2022. However, since the American culture is very different from Indian culture, there are a number of things you need to keep in mind for a pleasant holiday.


  • Visa

The most important thing you need to know about visiting the U.S.A. is visa requirements. Securing a tourist visa to the U.S.A. can be a time-consuming affair and one that requires a lot of paperwork and preparation.

Hence, make sure that you start preparing for your visa applications months in advance, and book refundable flights and accommodation to save any disappointments and financial losses. Speak to friends and family who have secured an American tourist visa in the past or considering hiring an agent to guide you through the process. Also, spend as much time as you can understand the official U.S.A. visa guide for Indian citizens.


  • Tipping

One of the biggest cultural differences you will experience is in terms of food habits and restaurant etiquettes. Unlike in India, tipping at restaurants is serious business in the U.S.A. In fact, tipping the hotel staff and pretty much, all service staff that you encounter on your holiday is the expected etiquette. Also, most restaurants do not include taxes on the menu price. So make sure you look out for additional taxes if you are on a budget since every additional dollar can set you back by several hundred rupees.


  • Food

When it comes to the food itself, don’t expect your meals or your coffee to arriving piping hot unlike back at home. Most Americans prefer warm meals over hot meals. Lastly, several public places are likely to have a ban on eating on the go. So, make sure you look around for signs before you unwrap that burger out in public view.


  • Service Timings

Unlike back in India, a lot of businesses operate on different timings in the U.S.A. For instance, a lot of cafes and restaurants are open only until 9 p.m. On the other hand, many malls are open until much later, often 11 p.m. So, if you are planning a day out, make sure you wrap up your dinner first and then continue shopping, unlike the trend back home.


Lastly, remember that unlike holidaying back in India, everything is a lot more costlier on your U.S.A. trip. It therefore, makes financial sense to invest in a USA travel insurance such as policies offered by Bharti AXA GI to ensure peace of mind in case of unforeseen costs. You should also spend some time considering the various ways to save on a trip to the U.S.A.
