India is a very beautiful, colorful place–but like many countries, tourists must apply for a visitor’s visa in order to gain entrance. A foreigner is only granted a tourist visa if he/she does not possess property or a job in India, and whose only goal is recreational: sight-seeing and meeting friends and family.
Apply by Mail
To apply by mail, applicants should fill out and print the application with all the required documents. Send it through a carrier with trackable mail: FedEx, UPS or USPS. Applications sent by mail will take 7-9 business days to process. Once the India Visa Center receives an application, they will notify the applicant of receipt via email and attach an individualized URL that allows the applicant to check on the status of his/her application.
Apply in Person
To apply in person, visit the nearest India Visa Center; bring all required documents and a completed application.
Same Day Visas
Sam day visa applications for US-born US citizens will only be accepted in person by appointment at the India Visa Center. Applicants can choose an appointment time when filling the online application, and will need to pay the application fee in cash or by money order.
