Free pick-up information

We advise people to fly into Calicut airport (CCJ), North Kerala; it’s the closest to the venue and we provide free pick-up from there on the morning of the retreat start date.

Flight information

We ask people to arrange their flights to arrive on the morning of the retreat start date if they want to book the free pick-up, otherwise you can get a pre-paid taxi from the airport or we can arrange one for you at the usual local cost, which is around £40 and takes around 2-3 hours depending on traffic.

Etihad and Qatar airlines do good deals on flights via either Abu Dhabi, or Doha respectively. To find flights to Callicut (CCJ) also known as Khozikode we recommend It is a reliable website which gives you lots of choice.

Visa information

You will need a tourist visa to come to India. You can either:

1. Get a regular tourist visa to India here.

2. Or get an e-tourist visa here

Please check your arrival airport before applying for the e-tourist visa. At the point of writing you can fly into Callicut airport on an e-visa.

You can apply for the e-visa up to 4 days before departure to India. It is probably easier to apply for than the regular tourist visa because everything is done online. Remember that you will need to print out your visa form and take it with you.
