How is the application form?
Forms are not the most beloved things in life, but iVisa makes things easier for Venezuelans. The application form we 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 24/7 and guide you through the process.
The first step is quite simple. Venezuelans just need to insert 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 the information is crucial. Once your information is processed, you cannot make any corrections. You should also make sure to 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 Venezuelans need to upload the same amount. But don't worry about this, 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 Venezuelans to stay in India for a maximum of 90 days in Total with Multiple Entry, 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.

With your Venezuelan passport and your e-Visa, you're allowed to have Multiple Entry, and you can stay in India for a maximum of 90 days in Total.
