welcome to

The Foreign Correspondents' Club of South Asia

Welcome to the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of South Asia, a group of more than 500 journalists and photographers covering India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Nepal, Afghanistan and Tibet.

New members are always welcome – there is a link to the membership application form on this page. While the club was started by “Foreign” correspondents, or those who work for news outlets outside of the region, we also welcome journalists from local papers, magazines and television. In addition to journalists we admit associates such as diplomats, lawyers, and people dealing with the media from non-governmental organizations and companies

As India’s economy has boomed in recent years, and conflict continued to grip Afghanistan and other neighboring areas, the FCC has become an important meeting point for far-flung traveling journalists to reconnect and recharge. The club has also substantially expanded what it offers to members, to include more press conferences, sports match screenings, book launches and other cultural events. Not surprisingly, attendance in the past year has been a record high.

The FCC is a member of the International Association of Press Clubs (IAPC) and members of the FCC are welcomed in all the IAPC clubs around the world (see the IAPC website). We welcome IAPC affiliated overseas club members when they visit India.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh hosted Foreign Correspondent members of the FCC to tea at his residence on March 27, 2008 to mark the 50th anniversary of the club. He was presented with an anthology of 50 years of foreign correspondents’ articles and photographs, “Foreign Correspondent – 50 Years of Reporting South Asia”, that had just been published by Penguin Books India.
