The currency crisis may be keeping the number of Indian visa applicants down, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of the lull. Travel Visa Pro’s team of experts can assist you with getting your visa for India whether you’re just looking for an escape to Agra or need to arrange a meeting with important business clients.
Indian visa services
Applying for an Indian visa online gives travelers 30 days in the country, and you don’t even have to hand over your passport; just print the electronic visa and have it ready at immigration when you arrive. Flying to India has never been easier now that the government accepts applications for e-visas online.
We provide most India travel visa types. International travelers whose sole objective is sightseeing or a short visit to meet friends or relatives are eligible for a tourist visa in India. Travel Visa Pro will walk our clients through the process from start to finish and get you on your flight with a smile on your face and a passport ready to be stamped. As always, US passport holders should have at least six months’ validity from the date of arrival in India and at least two blank pages for immigration. In addition, travelers may be required to submit proof of their onward journey and sufficient money for their stay in India.
Indian visa application form
Filling out an Indian visa application, like any other piece of paperwork issued by a foreign government, can be confusing even for weathered travelers. Fortunately, with English as the de facto lingua franca in India, there is less of a chance those seeking tourist and business visas will be thrown by language difficulties.
All Americans, even short-term visitors, must apply for an Indian visa prior to arrival. First, it’s essential to determine which type of visa applies to your visit to India. Those with short stays of 30 days or less qualify for Tourist Visas (T) and e-Tourist Visas (eTV). Travelers coming to India for work qualify for Business Visas (B) or Employment Visas (E). Entry Visas (X) and Overseas Citizen of India Visas (OCI) usually apply to people of Indian descent.
The online application is fairly straightforward, but there are a few areas in which applicants may have trouble. As an American citizen, if you need a visa to India but are currently based in the UAE, it’s best to apply with a local consulate in Dubai. In addition, immigration requires some information considered to be rather personal: religion, education, and visible identification marks (moles, tattoos, scars, etc). Your application isn’t just limited to information on your background and experience; details about your mother and father must be provided to determine if you have any ties to Pakistan.
It’s important to be as detailed as possible in your application to avoid rejection and further delays. Providing information on your employer, travel itinerary, entry and exit dates, as well as any contacts you may have an India will ensure a smooth process. Despite any setbacks you may experience, just remember your goal of traveling to one of the most amazing countries on Earth.
Expedited Indian visa process
Traveling to India shouldn’t have to be hassle. Indian visa regulations have been known to change often with little warning. In addition, these changes aren’t universally enforced and sometimes unknown by certain consular agents. Travel Visa Pro can ease this burden; our team of travel experts are always in close contact with staff at consulates and embassies across the globe, and up to date on the visa regulations of different countries. Our clients don’t have to worry about a recent requirement being poorly advertised on embassy or immigration websites; rather, TVP will get the information they need to process your Indian visa application quickly and painlessly.
While many countries allow visas to be processed through the mail or don’t require one until arrival, India asks all business and leisure travelers to visit one of their consular offices to apply for a visa, assuming you’re not using an e-visa. One of the advantages to using a service like Travel Visa Pro is avoiding these wait times. Whether you’re filling our your Indian visa application in Chicago, DC, or the new consulate soon to open in Seattle, our staff will be in the area to help with the process. Our Concierge Service puts our trained staff at clients’ beck and call, and our Executive Choice Service for premier business travelers is handled personally by the owner.
Assuming our clients need more than a tourist e-visa, Travel Visa Pro can dash to an Indian consulate or embassy and get your visa ready in as little a few business days with our expedited service. Regardless of what kind of visa is required, we can help as much as you need. If you’re a traveler who likes to take care of visa applications on his own but would like to have a professional look over everything just to be safe, consider our Document Double Check service; our team of experts will be on the lookout for items you may have left out thinking they were unimportant but which in fact are necessary for your application. Let our staff help you with the visa application process and get you on your journey to India.
