India Visa for the citizens of Kenya – requirements

The requirements for an India Visa for the citizens of Kenya are the same as for every other eligible nationality. The list is quite short, and the chances of you already having everything on it are pretty high. Here is what you will need for a successful application process:

Moreover, you have to scan the passport’s information page. You will be required to upload it in PDF format during the application process.

  • Digital passport photo – you need to make sure that the picture is taken recently and meets all the other guidelines for a valid passport photo. The format needs to be JPEG.

  • E-mail address – iVisa will send you the travel document via e-mail as soon as it is issued. That is why you need to provide a valid address to which you have access. Do not forget to print out at least one physical copy before departure.

  • Means of payment – iVisa is pretty flexible when it comes to payment. You can use a credit or debit card, but if you have an account with PayPal, you can use it as well.

Keep in mind that both factors will determine the cost of your India visa. Check the options below before submitting. When it comes to processing, you are given three options:

    • Standard processing – your India visa arrives within 15 days, and you have to pay USD 86.00.

    • Rush processing – choosing this option means that your application is processed within 3 days, and the fee is USD 116.00.

    • Super Rush processing – your application is processed within just 2 days and you are charged USD 151.00.

As for the visa type, the fees for the Tourist Visa are listed above. The India Business visa and the India Medical Visa will cost you an additional: USD 137.00, USD 137.00 and USD 137.00, respectively.

  1. The second part focuses on payment and review. Check to make sure that all the form is 100 % correct. Otherwise, you can end up with an invalid e-visa.

  2. And finally, the third part wants you to upload the documents that support your application. When you are finished, you can submit your request, and iVisa will handle the government bureaucracy that follows and get your e-visa to you.

As you can see, the online process of getting an India Visa for the citizens of Kenya is not at all complicated.
