Foreigner Regional Registration office is the primary agency to regulate the registration, movement, stay, departure, and also for recommending the extension of stay of Foreign nationals in India.
Most of the Multi-National Companies, Wholly Owned Subsidiaries of Foreign Companies, and Foreign Companies having branch office in India has foreign nationals as director on its Board of Directors.
The most important pre-requisite as per Government of India for a foreign national visiting to India on a long-term visa (more than 180 days) are required to register themselves with a Registration Officer within 14 days of arriving in India. Pakistani nationals visiting India are required to register themselves within 24 hours of arrival regardless of the duration of their stay. Foreign registration is regulated by the Registration of Foreign Act, 1939 and the Registration of Foreigners Rules, 1992.
The Foreign national should be present in India while applying for FRRO Registration and Foreign nationals must report in person to the nearest Registration Officer in their Jurisdiction. However, in April 2018, the Government of India launched the e-FRRO scheme which allows foreigners to register and avail Visa / immigration or any other related services online. Under the new scheme, a foreign citizen is no longer required to appear in-person at an FRRO, unless specifically required to do so.
E-FRRO is the online portal which involves completely online application submission and document upload, for which no facilitation is required by any intermediary / agents etc. It is advisable not to believe in any middlemen / agent that can claim speedy grant of e-FRRO and charge extra money for it.
The purpose of this e-FRRO is to provide Faceless, Cashless and Paperless services to the foreigners without requirement of visiting FRRO office. No requirement of taking appointment and visiting FRRO office unless specifically called upon by the FRRO office.
Foreign nationals are issued a Registration Certificate within two weeks of applying online for  Registration except in case of any discrepancies. The Registration Certificate has a validity matching the period of stay as specified in the Visa.

Upon scrutiny, any discrepancies or instructions with regard to application i.e. Fee Payment, Correction of Selected/desired Service, re-uploading of documents etc would be conveyed to the Foreigner on their registered email i.d. or SMS alerts on registered mobile number.
