I have valid H1B visa in my passport.
Can I travel to India via London.
Can you please tell me what restrictions we have at london to travel. I heard some European countries have restrictions to travel.

Call airlines and British embassy and they should tell you the updated rule.

-------------------------
For transit flight through London (i.e. UK)
-------------------------
If a valid US visa is stamped in your passport and the passport and visa have not expired on the day of your travel, you are exempt from the transit visa requirement at London. If the visa is not stamped in you passport, say you are carrying advance parole travel document, in that case you need a Transit visa.

-------------------------
For transit flight through Paris (i.e. France)
-------------------------
If a valid US visa is stamped in your passport and the passport and visa have not expired on the day of your travel, you are exempt from the transit visa requirement at Paris. If you are carrying advance parole travel document, in that case too you do not need a Transit visa at Paris.


Hope this is useful.

Please boycott these countries that ask for transit visa, they need to be taught a lesson the hard way, fly nonstop or through friendly countries.
