iVisa | 5 min read | Updated on Feb 16, 2024

We all, including Austrian citizens, dislike going to an embassy to get a visa. We wouldn’t want to waste much of our time and effort standing in line and waiting for our turn to complete the process. Depending on your country of origin, it may also require us to travel quite a bit.

But good news for you! You don't have to worry about it if you're planning to travel to India. We have a better solution. You can apply for an India eVisa, which is the electronic version of going to an embassy.

With this option, you may apply whenever you want to, even outside business hours, for as long as you have a computer or a smartphone with an internet connection. Do you want to learn more about this process? Then, keep reading this article.
