No more hassle - Indian visas can now be obtained online!
At last, Indian visas can be obtained by UK passport holders simply and less expensively - online!
Not only has the visa cost been reduced from £89.50 to US$60 (around £40, including processing fees), but there is no longer a need to make a postal application or an appointment to visit the Indian High Commission or nearest consulate. UK passport holders simply need to apply and pay online using the Indian government’s tourist visa website https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/tvoa.html.
E-visa applications do, however, need to be submitted at least 4 days before travel (entry documents taking up to 4 days to be emailed back), and can only be made within 30 days of one’s departure date. This visa is then valid for a single entry and a stay of up to 30 days, but does not allow entry into restricted areas.
Please note this is an additional service; it does not replace the standard tourist visa. For more details about the standard multiple entry tourist visa, please visit the website of VFS Global on http://in.vfsglobal.co.uk.
