Getting an India visa for Malawian is more convenient than before. If before you needed to take a trip to the Indian embassy, today you can do all that from your home. You just need a computer or a smartphone that is connected to internet. While there are more than 150 nationalities that can apply for such a document, you still need to make sure that you qualify. To do that, use the Visa Checker you find on iVisa’s website. It is easy to use and will spare you of a lot of visa policy research.
What do you need to provide
The list of things Malawian need to provide is concise. iVisa will do most of the work, but you still need to help them get started. Here is what you need:
Passport – you will have 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.

Payment means – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment. Aside from using credit or a debit card, you can also use Paypal since it quite popular now.
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.
Letter from the hospital in India – this is valid for people who apply for a medical visa.
How much is the cost?
Most Malawian might be concerned about cost when it comes to such a service. However, rest assured that iVisa provides excellent service at competitive prices. The cost of your visa depends on two factors: processing time and visa cost. As for the former, you can choose one of the three available options:
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.
Super Rush processing time – 48 hours. As you can expect, the price goes even higher. This option will cost you $152.
As for the visa type, Malawian 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 will cost an additional $10 more.
The application form
While you may have an adverse opinion on forms, you can put your mind at ease. iVisa has created one of the easiest forms that Malawian will ever fill in. It consists of three stages, and it should take only 20 minutes to complete. However unlikely it may be, in case you need any help, there is a support service that is at your disposal 24/7.
The first step is to fill in your general information and choose both the processing time and visa type. It should take you about 5 minutes for all that. The second step consists of revision and payment. Make sure that all the information you provide is 100% accurate. Check the spelling carefully. Last but not least, 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 Malawian 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.
