Visa for India


A visa is required to travel to India. The type of visa you need depends on the purpose of your trip. Are you visiting India as a tourist? Then you should apply for a tourist visa. Are you going on a business trip? Then apply for a business visa.

Please be aware: during the application process, biometric data must be collected. We are happy to help you with visa application process, but you will need to go in-person to the Indian Application Service  Center for biometric data collection. Once taken, your biometric data will be valid for 5 years. However, this data is linked to your passport, so in the case of a new passport, the biometric data must be taken again.
