The online form they provide is broken down into three simple steps, and if you are in need of help, you can contact iVisa’s support service. Someone will take your call anytime and guide you through the process.
The first step is quite simple. You need to insert your basic information such as name, address, e-mail, passport info, date of birth, marital status, and so on. At this point, you are also required to choose the visa type and the processing time.
The next step consists of revision and payment. The accurate disclosure of information is crucial. Once your information is processed, you cannot make any corrections. You should double-check every piece of information before submitting the application.
The third step consists of a personal questionnaire and photo upload. You will be required to upload additional documents, but the amount depends on the case. Once you complete all three steps, just submit your application and wait for your eVisa to arrive in your e-mail inbox in the timeframe you chose. It is as easy as that!
Don't forget that the document will allow you to stay in India for a maximum of 90 days in Total with Multiple Entry, depending on the type.
However,remember that an India e-Visa can be used only if you use a designated point of entry. At the moment there are 25 airports and 5 seaports that accept this type of document. A different point of entry requires a consular visa for which you need to visit the Indian embassy in your area.
What happens once I complete the application?
Once you complete your online form, you have to wait for your India e-Visa to be sent by email in the timeframe you chose. You don't have to deal with the embassy, we do it for you so you don't lose valuable time. After that, you only need to present a printed version of your eVisa along with your passport when you enter India.
Do I need to get an Indian eVisa for my kids too?
Yes, if you travel with them, of course. Every traveler going to India needs an e-Visa regardless of age.
