Valid Photo ID proof is only Passport for all flights originating or terminating outside India (for all passengers including infants and children). Valid Visa docs shall also be shown, if needed.

However, for citizens of India, if the travel is to/from Nepal, then valid photo ID proofs, besides passport, can also be a Voted ID card, Birth Certificate or School ID for children or Birth Certificate of Infants.

Airline might also ask passengers to show the Debit or Credit card used to make the payment. Hence, either these or their photocopies shall be carried at the airport.

For foreign nationals travelling to Imphal, there is a need to carry a Protected Area Permit which is issued by Home Department of Manipur after approval of Ministry of Home, Government of India. If this is not carried, IndiGo can deny boarding and forfeit the entire amount.

  1. Kids who do not have passport and have not been issued a new session school ID card may not be able to travel via indigo. I have faced this situation where the call center representative was asking for a bona fide certificate per policy, to be available, even though previous session is ending March 2016 (Delhi), which is difficult to produce during summer vacation period when schools close down for the break (post mid May). Indigo should allow based on all relevant other proofs combined if required (e.g. birth certificate + previous ID) so as not to cause inconvenience to people.

  2. Can a child not having a photo identity proof travel along with guardians? The child is 5 years old and I don’t want to claim any fare concession for the child.

    • You do need to have some identity proof of the child. It can be a school ID card. It is not related to child fares.

      • I had inquired with the CISF staff at the airport, they suggested that if airlines permits then the child can travel without any sort of ID Proof. I don’t have school ID Card. I didn’t book the ticket due to this confusion. Shall I proceed with the booking?

  3. I have my e-aadhar card…i have taken it out from net
    Will it be valid at the time of check in and other places
    Or i have my college id will it be valid?

  4. Hi, I want to travel Kathmandu from New Delhi.
    I do have voter ID card from Karnataka. But my kids don’t have any other ID. They only have aadhar card and birth certificate.
