- Depositions in India can take place at the venue of your choosing, whether that be a hotel room, law firm office, conference room, or videoconferencing facility.
- All U.S. citizens traveling to India will need to apply for a business visa before travel.
- To get a business visa you will need a Letter of Invitation from an Indian law firm or Indian company. For more information please visit: Official Partner of Embassy of India at Cox & Kings Global Services.
