Everyone, including Emirati, hates going to an embassy for their visa. You may need to stand in line or may be required to travel quite a bit depending on your country of origin. However, there is a better solution out there if you are traveling to India. You can apply for an India evisa. This is the electronic version of going to an embassy. You can apply whenever you like, even outside business hours. All you need is a computer or a smartphone and internet connection. The best part is that you can apply for your visa from the comfort of your own home.
It will take only a few seconds when checking your eligibility. Emirati can access iVisa’s website and click on the Visa Checker. You will know in seconds whether or not you qualify for an electronic visa. Additionally, keep in mind that the Indian evisa is accepted only at 25 airports and 5 seaports in India. Any other point of entry will need a trip to the embassy.
You only need to provide them a few things to get started and iVisa will do most of the work for you, but. Below is the list of what you need:
Valid passport – most Emirati will have no difficulty obtaining a passport, and if you already have one, make sure that it is not expired.
Digital photo– make sure that the photo is most recent. You should not make face gestures in it, and the background should be white. Just scan it and be ready to upload it.

Mode 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 forms are difficult to understand and most Emirati may not like forms. That does not apply to iVisa’s application form. It consists of three easy steps. Also, the company has an excellent support service that is ready to take your call day and night in case you need any help.
The first step will ask you to insert your general information. That should take only about 5 minutes of your time. You must also choose the processing time and visa type. Both choices are related to the cost of your visa, so make sure that you know what you choose.
The second step will ask Emirati to review what was written in step one and make the payment. It is highly recommended that you check the accuracy of information you insert because revisions are not possible once your application is processed.
The last step consists of a set of personal questions and photo upload. You may be required to upload additional documents. Do not expect to have the same requirements as it differ from case to case, so. Simply hit the submit button after you are finished with all of the steps. 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 choices:
Standard processing – 96 hours. Because it is the cheapest option, most applicants go for standard. It only costs $87.
Rush processing – 72 hours. The cost goes a bit higher than with the previous option. You will be charged $117.
The whole thing is simpler than you think. 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. There is no reason you will not be as well.
