All of us, including Austrian Citizens, dislikes going to an embassy to get a visa. We wouldn’t want to waste much of our time and effort standing in line and waiting for our turn to complete the process. It may also require us to travel quite a bit depending on your country of origin. No need to worry, as iVisa has a better solution for that, if you are traveling to India. You can apply for an India evisa, which is the electronic version of going to an embassy. Here, you may apply whenever you want to, even outside business hours, for as long as you have a computer or a smart phone with internet connection. This means that you can apply in the comfort of your own home.
Before you can apply, you’d need to check your eligibility first, which will only take a few seconds. Austrian Citizens just need to access iVisa’s website, click on the Visa Checker in the upper right corner, and you will know in seconds whether or not you qualify for an electronic visa. Take note that the Indian evisa is accepted only at 25 airports and 5 seaports in India. Any other point of entry requires a trip to the embassy.
iVisa will do most of the work for you, but you need to provide them a few things to get started. Below you will find a list of everything you need to provide:
Valid passport – most Austrian Citizens won’t have difficulty a passport. If you already have one, make sure that it is not expired.
Digital photo of your self – ensure that the photo is recent. You should not make face gestures in it, and the background should be white. Just scan it and be ready to upload it.

Means of payment – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment. You can use a credit or a debit card, and if you have an account on Paypal, you can use that too.
Business card copy and invitation letter – this requirement applies to people who want to go to India on business and apply for an India business evisa.
Most Austrian Citizens may not be happy about forms, mainly because it is difficult to understand, but this does not apply to iVisa’s application form. It is divided into three easy steps, and in case you need any help, the company has an excellent support service that is ready to take your call day and night.
In the first step, you’ll need to provide your general information. That should take only about 5 minutes of your time. Here, you must also choose the processing time and visa type. Remember that both choices will affect the cost of your visa, so make sure of your selection.
The second step will ask Austrian Citizens to take another look at what you wrote in step one and make the payment. It is highly recommended that you check the accuracy of your provided information. This is because corrections are not possible after your application is processed.
The final step consists of a set of personal questions and photo upload. You need to upload additional documents. It is case to case basis, so do not expect to have the same requirements as the next person. After you are done with all three steps, you hit the submit button and wait. It does not get any easier than that.
The amount of your visa depends on two things: visa type and processing time. iVisa provides three types of visas: for tourism, business, and medical. As for processing time, you have three options:
Standard processing – It costs just $87 and your visa will be ready within three business days. Most travelers go for standard because it is the cheapest option.
Rush processing – this time your application will be processed in just 1 business day. However, the cost goes a bit higher than with the previous option. You will be charged $117.
As you can see, the whole thing is super simple. It should take you about 20 minutes to be done with the application process. Thousands of people have done so and are more than satisfied with the results.
