People who love to travel, including Latvians, hate 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. But this has changed now because 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.
You need to take a few seconds of your time to check your eligibility, before you could proceed with the application process. Latvians can access iVisa’s website and click on the Visa Checker, and 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. Below is the list of what you need:
Valid passport – most Latvians 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 Latvians may not like forms, with the thought of it being just the same as the other complicated forms. But that does not apply to iVisa’s application form. It consists of just three easy steps, and 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. In this step, you will also have to choose the processing time and visa type. Both choices are related to the cost of your visa, so make sure that you choose what best suits you.
The second step will ask Latvians 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 is a set of personal questions and photo upload. You may be asked 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 will depend on two factors: visa type and processing time. iVisa provides three types of visas, and they are for tourism, business, and medical.
As for processing time, you also have three choices:
Standard processing – most travelers choose standard because it is the cheapest option. For the cost of $35, your visa will be ready within three business days.
Rush processing – this time your application will be processed within one business day. However, the cost goes a bit higher than with the previous option. You will be charged $65.
This whole process is simpler than of what you are thinking. It should only take 20 minutes of your time 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.
