Do Dominican Republic Passport Holders Require a Visa to Visit India?

Dominican Republic citizens must present a valid visa, depending on the purpose and length of their stay, to the immigration officer on arrival in India. Luckily, Dominicans qualify to apply for the Indian electronic visa and can avoid visiting the Indian embassy.

Online Indian Visa Options

There are three types of visas available to Dominican Republic passport holders online:

You will need to choose the appropriate visa for your stay based on the reason for your visit to India, how long you intend to stay, and how many times you plan to visit.

Applying for an Indian Visa as a Dominican

The Indian e-visas are issued electronically by the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to those who qualify. For Dominican Republic passport holders traveling for tourism purposes, there are three different e-tourist visa options:

  • 30-day, double-entry e-tourist visa

  • 1-year, multiple-entry e-tourist visa

  • 5-year, multiple-entry e-tourist visa

Those traveling for business activities, such as business meetings or medical reasons, will need to apply for the visa best suited to their stay. This will be the Multiple Entry e-business visa or the Triple Entry e-medical visa.

Who can apply for an Indian visa online?

Only those with valid travel documents (a valid passport) can apply online for the Indian e-visa. Unfortunately, those who only have refugee travel documents, among others, will need to contact the nearest Indian embassy or consulate.

Diplomatic or Official passport holders, laissez-passer travel document holders, and those holding emergency or limited passports will also need to contact an embassy.

COVID-19 Requirements

India is open for tourism but requires all visitors entering the country to fill out the mandatory India Self Declaration Form.

What is the India self-declaration form

During the pandemic, India introduced a health screening travel document called the India Self-Declaration to help control the spread of COVID-19. The form is mandatory for all arriving visitors to the country and allows officials to track travelers' contact and health information. The document does not replace a visa or other travel authorizations you may need.

Apply for the India self-declaration form

In our attempt to help streamline all the paperwork you will need to prepare for the trip, iVisa allows you to apply for the Self-Declaration Form with your visa application. Fully vaccinated travelers will need to provide proof of vaccination . Remember that the COVID-19 protocols may change on short notice. We advise all travelers to check their airline and relevant government websites for updates before their trip.
