Applying for an India electronic visa has been very common recently for more than 150 nationalities including Swedish. This has become popular since it was launched, and the fact that Swedish Citizen no longer need to go to the Indian embassy for their visa has become a big selling point. All you need to have is a device and an internet connection, and you can already apply online. While many Swedish Citizen can apply, you still need to check your eligibility. You may check it using the Visa Checker, then enter your country of origin and choose India as your destination. The result will then be shown immediately.
What do you need to provide?
While iVisa is happy to do most of the work for Swedish Citizen, you still need to provide the necessary documents for the process. There are only a few on the list, which are easy to obtain. Here is what you need:
Valid passport – you will have no issues with obtaining a passport, and if you already have one, take a look at its expiry date.
Digital photo of yourself – it is preferable that the photo is as recent as possible. You should not make face gestures in it, and the background should be white. Just scan it and upload it when you are told to.

Means of payment – iVisa accepts multiple methods of payment. You can use a credit or a debit card, and since Paypal has become quite standard these days, 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.
Letter from the hospital in India – this is valid for people who apply for a medical visa.
India evisa for Swedish Citizen – Processing Time and Cost
Keep in mind that the cost of an India evisa will depend on two factors that you will choose: visa type (tourist, business, medical) and processing time. For the processing time, you have three options to choose from, and they are as follows:
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.
For the Swedish Citizen visa type and how it affects the cost, the fees above apply to a tourist visa. A medical or a business visa will be $10 more expensive.
The Application Form
While most of us have negative thoughts about forms, iVisa surely made things easier for Swedish Citizen. The form they provide is broken down into three easy steps, and if you are in need of help, iVisa’s awesome support service will take your call 24/7 and will guide you through the process.
For the first step, Swedish Citizen just need to insert your basic information such as name, address, e-mail, passport info, date of birth, marital status, and so on. In this step, you are also required to choose the visa type and the processing time.
Then, the next step is about revision and payment. Here, you need to make sure that the information you provided are correct and accurate, as you can no longer make any changes once it has been processed. Swedish Citizen should make sure that you double-check every piece of information before submitting the application.
The last step consists of a personal questionnaire and photo upload. You will be asked to upload additional documents, which is a case to case basis. Not all Swedish Citizen needs to upload the same amount. Not to worry, you will be instructed what you need to upload. Once you complete all three steps, just submit your application and wait for it to arrive in your e-mail inbox in the timeframe you chose. It is as simple as that. The document you will receive will allow Swedish Citizen to stay in India for maximum 60 days with multiple entries, depending on the type. However, you have to remember that an India evisa can be used only if you use a designated point of entry. At the moment there are 25 airports and 5 seaports that accept such a document. A different point of entry requires a consular visa for which you need to visit the Indian embassy in your area.
