E-visa Liberalization

 In view of the huge popularity of e-visa regime among foreigners and to further facilitate their travel to India, Government of India has decided to increase the duration of e-Tourist and e-Business visas from the existing 60 days with double entry to one year (upto 5 years for e-Tourist visa) with multiple entry. In addition, foreign nationals can also get E-Conference Visa, e-Medical Visa and e-Medical Attendant Visa through online.

The e-Visa will enable visitors to apply online and receive an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) within 4 days on the given email id. Foreign/Israeli nationals are allowed to enter into India on the new passport even if Electronic Travel authorization (ETA) (e-Visa) has been issued on the old passport, provided foreign nationals also carry the old passport on which ETA was issued.

Note/Advisory - It has been brought to our notice that a number of fake visa websites are being operated on the internet, claiming to provide e-Tourist Visa services to visa applicants desiring to travel to India.  In the recent past, there have been an increasing number of complaints relating to fraud perpetrated by these websites.  In order to mislead applicants, some of these websites have created images and homepage templates mimicking the Government of India websites for e-Tourist Visa applicants.

It may kindly be noted that only Indian Government website dealing with e-Visa is www.Indianvisaonline.gov.in.  No other website belongs to the Government of India and therefore should not be relied on for e-Tourist Visa services.
