Differences between the India Tourist Visa (Embassy Visa) and the India Tourist eVisa

The government of India offers various visa categories, depending on the reason for traveling, nationality, and duration of your trip. Ensure you choose the right visa for your trip!

Here are some of the main differences between the India visa categories:

The paper visa requires applicants to visit an Indian embassy or consulate. Additionally, the regular visa has more flexibility regarding duration and reasons for travel.

  • India e-Tourist Visa: This eVisa allows applicants to submit their documents and pay the fees online. You’re informed via email if the electronic tourist visa is granted. This visa is only valid for tourist purposes and is valid for a shorter period of time.

You don’t have to courier your passport or visit an Indian embassy or consulate. Authorities will stamp the tourist visa on your passport when visiting India.

Besides these Tourist Visas, there are a few more categories you can select based on your travel purpose:

  • India e-Business Visa: Select this business visa if you want to visit India for business purposes. This electronic permit is a double-entry visa that grants a stay of up to 180 days in the country to, for example, attend a business meeting or conference.

  • India e-Medical Visa: The e-Medical Visa for India is designed for foreign nationals seeking medical treatment in India. It’s a multiple-entry visa that allows the holder to enter the country three times within 60 days.

An additional category is the e-Medical Attendant Visa for travelers assisting a person that seeks medical attention in India.

  • India Visa on Arrival: This visa is only available to a small selection of countries, and offers similar conditions to the Tourist eVisa.

  • India Transit Visa: A visa for transits exceeding 24 hours.
