Visa requirements

Foreign Nationals coming to India are required to possess a genuine and valid national passport or any other internationally recognised travel document establishing his/her nationality and identity, bearing the photograph of the individual. The only exceptions are nationals of Nepal and Bhutan who can enter India without a visa. (Note: Nepalese nationals need a visa if entering India from China)

All Individual visa seekers are requested to apply for the Indian Visa through the correct Indian Mission (Consulate) or directly to the Indian Visa Application Center (IVAC)

What are the different types of visas?

Read the visa pages to see the type of visa you need and how you can apply for one. Indian visas are generally issued for 6 months, 1 year (12 months), 5 years (60 months) or 10 years (120 months) depending on the citizenship of the applicant, type of visa and the fee paid. In case the incorrect number of months is requested, the Indian Consulate has the discretion to adjust the time up or down to the nearest validity option, to charge full fees or to require a new application.
