How Online Visa Can Help Avoiding The Queues At Embassy?

Online visa

India is the country of contrasts, but also the country of bureaucracy! That is why there are some hurdles to overcome when entering the country. 

Book flights, and go on vacation - it's not that easy in India. If you want to travel on the subcontinents, the visa application is a central part of your travel preparation. Entry to India without a visa is only possible for nationals of Bhutan, Nepal, and the Maldives.

How to Avoid the Queues at Embassy?

Travelers no longer have to come to the embassy or consulate of the destination country. The visa application can be done online. The e-visa offers several advantages. In contrast to a visa upon entry, the waiting time at the airport is reduced. The visa application is also faster, and more transparent.

If you only pursue private or tourist travel intentions, there are two ways for you to apply for an Indian visa. Which one is right depends on the one hand on your expected length of the stay, on the other hand on the means of travel you are using or which border crossing you choose.

These 2 types of tourist visas are suitable for you
A distinction is made between the "regular" tourist visa, and the electronic entry permit e-Tourist Visa (eTV for short), also known as ETA India.

Before I explain the differences, there is a commonality between the two types of visas: In both cases, the visa application for every person - including children - must be completed online before traveling to India. The Indian government has set up its portal for this. The forms are available in the English language. Online payment of the Visa fees is possible with a credit card (Mastercard and Visacard).

What is an e-visa?

E-Visa is the short name of the electronic visa. When applying for a travel visa for a destination requiring a visa, it is not always necessary to go to the country's embassy or consulate before you travel. In the case of some countries such as Azerbaijan and India, it is possible to process the entire application process online - but not without hurdles. We know the hurdles, and you can simply apply for the e-visa via our website, and we will fill out the necessary online applications for you. If entry is approved, you will receive an electronic visa by email or download. Present the printout of the document to the responsible official at the airport upon arrival in the country of travel. You will then usually receive a confirmation in the form of a stamp or a stamp on your passport. It is often necessary to carry the printed travel permit with your data with you throughout your stay.

Is the online visa available for all travel purposes?

The issuance of electronic visas is limited to some countries and certain types of visas. Most of the time, the digital versions are only available for tourist travel purposes or business visas. In addition, the duration of the trip is limited. For example, if you intend to work, study or do research in the target country, the e-visa is not sufficient.

What documents do I need for an e-visa?
To apply for your India visa online, a digital form must be completed. Just make sure that you type correct information about the visa applicant. Besides, you often need the following documents for successful visa processing:

  • Color digital photo
  • Hotel booking provided
  • Copy of flight tickets
  • Color copy of the passport (valid for at least 6 months)

So, we hope that now you can easily apply for an online visa for your upcoming tour in India.
