Everybody hates going to an embassy for their visa, including Thai. Aside from you need to stay in line, you may be required to travel quite a bit, depending on your country of origin. However, if you plan visit India, there is a better solution out there. You can apply for an India evisa, which is the electronic version of going to an embassy. It is so convenient that all you need is a computer or a smartphone with an internet connection to start your application. The best part is that you can apply for your visa from the comfort of your own home.
Before starting your application, you need to check your eligibility. Thai can access iVisa’s website, click on the Visa Checker in the upper right corner to know right away whether you qualify or not for an electronic visa. Also, keep in mind that the Indian evisa is accepted only at 25 airports and 5 seaports in India. Any other point of entry requires a visit to the embassy.
What is required of Thai?
iVisa will do most of the work for you, but you need to provide them a few things to have your request processed. Below you will find a list of everything you need to provide:
Valid passport – most Thai will have no trouble with getting a passport, and if you already have one, make sure that it is not expired.
Digital photo of yourself – ensure that the photo is recent. You should not make face gestures in it, and the background should be white. Just scan it and be ready to upload it.

Payment mode – 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.
Letter from the hospital in India – this is valid for people who apply for a medical visa.
What about the form?
Most Thai may not like forms, mainly because it is difficult to understand. iVisa’s application form is quite the opposite. It consists of three easy steps, and in case you need any help, the company has an amazing customer service that is ready to take your call day and night.
The first step will ask you to insert your general information and that should take only about 5 minutes of your time. You must also choose the processing time and visa type. Both choices will affect the cost of your visa, so be sure on what to choose.
The second step will ask Thai to take another look at what you wrote in step one and make the payment. It is highly recommended that you check the accuracy of the information you input because revision is no longer allowed once your application is processed.
You will need to answer personal questions and upload photo in the last step.You may also need to upload additional documents but it is case to case basis. After you are done with all three steps, submit the the form and wait. It does not get any easier than that.
India evisa for Thai – processing time and visa cost
The cost of your visa depends on two things: visa type and processing time. iVisa provides three types of visas: for tourism, business, and medical. iVisa provides three options for processing time:
Standard processing – 4 days. Because it is the cheapest option, most applicants go for standard. It only costs USD 76.00.
Rush processing – 48 hours. The cost goes a bit higher than with the previous option. You will be charged USD 106.00.
Super Rush processing time – 24 hours. As you can expect, the price goes even higher. This option will cost you USD 141.00.
As you can see, the whole thing is more than simple. It should take you about 20 minutes to complete the whole process. Many travelers have done so and are more than happy with the results. There is no reason you will not be as well.
