The India visas can basically be divided into visas as visa stickers in the passport and electronic visas. Electronic Visa for India can be applied for entirely online and will be sent by email. Paper-bound visas are affixed to the passport as stickers by a consulate employee in the passport. Read on this page which visa you need and how you can apply for it.

Steps to apply for the correct visa

  • 1. Decide whether you need an electronic visa or a visa sticker in your passport.

    Since the India electronic visa is faster, cheaper and easier to apply for than having a visa sticker in your passport, it is recommended that you use the electronic visa when possible. Only in the cases mentioned below is an electronic visa insufficient and a visa for India must be applied for, which is attached to the passport as a sticker.
