I am flying through Delhi and have about an 11 hour layover before my Druk Air flight to Paro. I simply plan on staying at the airport between flights. Do I need an Indian Visa if I’m only a transit passenger. I spent most of February in India and have no desire for any more sightseeing. – Richard B
