The Health Service of the Foreign Office recommended., The standard immunizations according to current immunization schedule review of the Robert Koch Institute for children and adults on the occasion of a journey and to complete, see  http://www.rki.de These include vaccinations for adults tetanus, diphtheria and polio, possibly even against pertussis, mumps, measles, rubella (MMR) and influenza.

Talk  time, about six months before your trip to India with a doctor about necessary vaccinations, since the Impfkurs may take several weeks to months.The cost can sometimes be up to 700 €. In addition, there may still be spending on malaria prevention and first aid kit.

There are some re-importers, malaria prophylaxis, for example, offer products from Holland cheaper.

To put together your first aid kit, you contact a pharmacist.

Malaria

Pune, with its mostly dry climate typical Malariaort no. But even here there are occasional cases of malaria, so that we can not completely exclude a risk. It is recommended in any case – keep covered with protective measures such as mosquito nets, mosquito protection cream / spray (cheap is also available in India) as well as arms and legs – depending on the situation.

A general medical prophylaxis, so the  Foreign Office is not currently recommended, but in some cases be useful. A similar tropical or travel medicine consultation is therefore strongly recommended prior to travel.

Rabies

The largest number of rabies cases worldwide occurred in India. There is a large population of street dogs, which also applies to Pune. Street dogs are usually harmless and immediately take to his heels, if they feel threatened. If you have a dog gets too close, you just bend over and grab a stone. The very gesture of stooping usually enough already to drive the dog. All stray dogs have had bad experiences with stones.

The probability of a dog   being attacked on the street is to consider fairly low.The biggest danger comes from cute dogs, like pet the best – and perhaps then snap shut. Keep your distance from stray dogs! They can be carriers of many diseases. The hard lot of street dogs in India can one go but had to heart. There are organizations in Pune, care for injured strays, do valuable work and deserve our support. (link)

In compliance with the precautions (keeping distance) seems to be the risk of rabies in Pune to be minimal, there is a residual risk remains.   The answer to the question “rabies vaccination – yes or no” depends on the individual risk tolerance.Even an immediate vaccination after a dog bite is possible (post-exposure prophylaxis – PEP), but quite expensive.

Hepatitis A

Should allow the recommendation of the Foreign Office to vaccinate against hepatitis A follow one necessarily. Hepatitis A is transmitted through contaminated water or food. Even with extreme care, a transfer take place. Here is a vaccine is necessarily fashionable!

Arrival


Book your flight to Pune as possible in time, so you can save a lot of money. Since 2008, Lufthansa offers a non-stop connection from Frankfurt to Pune, but not cheap.

There are cheaper flights to Bombay (Mumbai).

When you arrive in Mumbai, you best change enough money at the airport for the onward journey.

Almost all flights from Europe arrive in Mumbai at night. If you want to catch a connecting flight to Pune from the Domestic Airport or a train to Pune, you have to wait many hours. Pune why many travelers are planning a stopover in Mumbai, stay there and travel further until the next day. Some hotels offer it at a pickup from the airport, at best equal to inquire when booking.

Who wants to continue identical to Pune, takes a taxi. One can arrive in the area of ​​the airport pre-paid booking taxis to Pune, which are immediately available. The costs are for a 4000-5000 Chevrolet Tavera between Rs (80 €) in advance from Pune Rs 3000 only about the car ride on the new highway to Pune takes about 3-4 hours.

A cheaper solution is a shuttle / taxi service community, the Airport between Bombay and Pune – wrong – even at night.

The journey from Bombay to Pune is about 4 hours and costs around 600 Rs (10 €), dividing the minibus or a taxi with other passengers, however. They come in the morning in Pune and are sold directly to your destination in Pune. However, since all passengers are brought to the front door, the journey time can thus be extended considerably.

If you stay in Bombay, you are most cheaply by bus or train to Pune. There is an air-conditioned Volvo bus service for Pune, which is available from Dadar Railway Station in Bombay. Prices range from Rs 280 (around 5 €) per person. The train costs only half as much, if you travel second class.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Often the first impressions of Pune are rather disappointing. A wildly growing city with clogged with exhaust-filled streets with no one truly urban city center. If you learn to know better in Pune, but we discovered many hidden beauties, and the greatest treasure of this city: the people. Pune is a cosmopolitan, cosmopolitan city which attracts people from all parts of India and all over the world united. Pune is definitely an unforgettable experience when you learn to connect with the people and culture of this city. Even if the traffic is quite chaotic, but Pune has a relatively well-functioning infrastructure, modern buildings, excellent medical care, a good general security situation for India and a pleasant, temperate climate. Pune is a city where you can feel comfortable.

Registration


If your visa allows you to stay longer than 6 months in India, you have to register within 14 days of arrival at the concerned Foreigners Registration Office (FRO / immigration office) closest to your place of residence. The address of the FRO Pune is:
                  FRO Pune at- Police Commissioner Office,
                            2, Sadhu Waswani Road, 
                                Next to G.P.O. 
                              Pune – 411 001. 
                           Tel. 020-26208273. 

Working hours: FRO Pune is open from Monday to Friday from 15.00 to 17.00
for new registrations,
and between 10.00 to 12.30 for visa extensions, return visas, exit permits. On Saturdays,
Sundays and public holidays the office remains closed.

Another registration is done by your hotel or your landlord. Even if you are staying only for a short period in Pune or are staying with friends, your host / landlord is obliged to register you as guests with the police. For this purpose you have to have copies of your passport and visa ready with you and fill out a form.
The registration procedure at the FRO for a long term stay in Pune can be a nerve-wracking process. Just to be able to enter the FRO building, you have to wait for a long time at the gate in a queue until you are admitted. If you’re unlucky, after a long wait you will be asked to come back another day because the office is overcrowded. Once you have squeezed your way through a narrow gate, you will be checked for weapons and will have to sign-in in a visitor’s book. In the FRO office itself you can expect a huge crowd. The office is chronically understaffed and can hardly cope with the onslaught of visitors. By the time you get the necessary forms, get all the documents scanned and get your “Residential Permit”, many hours would have gone by, and usually you cannot do it all in one day. Large companies have agents who do all the preparatory work and you need to appear only to sign.
