Obtaining an India visa for Japanese has made easier, as you no longer need to go to the Indian embassy to get one. All the necessary steps you need to take could now be done at the comfort of your home, for as long as you have a computer or a smart phone with an internet connection. Just like the other 150 nationalities that can apply for such a document, you also need to make sure that you are eligible. To do that, you may use the Visa Checker you’ll find on the iVisa website. It is easy to use and will save you of a lot of visa policy research.
Since iVisa will do most of the work, the list of things Japanese need to provide is very few, to help them get started. Here is what you need:
Passport – there are no difficulties in obtaining a passport, and if you already have one, make sure that it is still valid. Just look at the expiry date.
Digital photo of yourself – it is recommended that the photo is recently taken. You should not make face gestures in it, and the background should be white.
A scanned passport with its information page
Means of payment – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment. You can use a credit or a debit card, and since Paypal has become quite popular, you can use that as well.
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.
Just like everyone, most Japanese might be concerned about fee when it comes to such a service. In the contrary, iVisa provides excellent service at competitive prices. The amount of your visa depends on two factors: processing time and visa cost.
For the processing time, you have three options to choose from:
Standard processing – most applicants go for standard because it is the cheapest option. It costs just $35, and your visa will be ready within three business days.
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 $65.
For the visa type, Japanese can travel to India on an evisa for tourism, business, and medical purposes. Depending on which one you choose, you will pay a particular price. The fees for the tourist evisa are listed above. The business and medical visas cost $10 more for each processing time
You may erase the negative thoughts you have in mind about application forms, as iVisa provides one of the easiest forms that Japanese will ever fill in. It is divided into three steps which should take only 20 minutes of your time to complete. No need to worry; just in case you need any help, there is a support service that you may call 24/7.
The first step is about filling in your general information and choosing both the processing time and visa type. This step will only take about 5 minutes.
The second step is about revision and payment. In this step, you have to make sure that all the information you provide is 100% accurate and check the spelling carefully.
The third step will ask you to answer a few personal questions and upload any additional documents you are required. After you are done with all that, you can click the submit button and wait. That is about it.
The visa you receive will allow Japanese multiple entries, and you can stay in India for maximum 60 days. Apart from that, remember that the India evisa is accepted only at 25 airports and 5 seaports. If you select another point of entry during your trip, you will have to go to the embassy after all.
