In fact, it is a huge selling point Ukrainian citizens are no longer required to go to the Indian embassy for their visa. Instead, you get to apply online. Basically, you need a gadget and an internet connection. While many Ukrainian citizens can apply, you still need to check your eligibility. You can do that by utilizing the Visa Checker. You put in your country of origin and choose India as your destination. The information you need will unfold in a second.
iVisa will definitely make things easier for Ukrainian citizens, but you still need to make a small effort. You need to give the proper information so that they can do your bidding. The list is not long, and the things on it are easy to obtain. Here is what you need:

Payment method – 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.
The cost of an India evisa depends on visa type (tourist, business, medical) and processing time. As for the processing time, you have three options to choose below:
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.
As for the Ukrainian citizens, visa type and how it affect the cost, the fees above apply to a tourist visa. A medical or a business visa requires additional $10 more expensive.
Forms are not the most appreciated things in life, but iVisa simplified things easier for Ukrainian citizens. The form they provide is divided into three simple steps, and if you are in need of help, you can contact iVisa’s customer service. Expect that your call will be answered 24/7 and guide you through the process.
The first step is very simple. Ukrainian citizens just need to insert basic information such as name, address, e-mail, passport info, date of birth, marital status, and so on. During this time, 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. Ukrainian citizens should make sure that you 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. Not all Ukrainian citizens need 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 will allow Ukrainian citizens to stay in India for maximum 60 days with multiple entries, depending on the type. However, keep in mind 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.
