If you are traveling to India, you actually have the option of applying for an e visa India directly on the E-Visa government website on https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/. You do NOT need to go through a third-party website to have a visa application filed on your behalf. As a matter of fact, the Indian government discourages it, mainly because there have been cases of scam.
That said if you plan on traveling to the country for business, pleasure or to get medical treatment, the first thing you need to do is visit the website we mentioned above to apply for e visa India. Check the info page. There is a list of countries whose citizens are eligible to apply for an electronic visa. Your country may or may not be on the list. If it isn’t, you will need to apply for a visa at the Indian embassy in the country you are in.
As we said earlier, you can apply electronically for a tourist visa, business Visa, or medical visa. How does the process work?
You can apply for a visa four days before you travel, although you can apply three months or 120 days before you are scheduled to travel. On the website, click on the button that says e-Visa Application. Fill out the application form as accurately as you can and then pay the visa fee, which varies from country to country. When you are done paying, you wait for a response.
Applying for a visa electronically does not in any way guarantee that your visa application is going to be approved. But when it is approved, you will need to bring a copy of an approved Electronic Travel Authorization,which you will need to present to an immigration officer upon your arrival. Make sure that the ETA has the word “APPROVED” on it.
What would it take for your visa application to be approved? Aside from paying the visa fee, you will need to present a passport that is valid for at least six months during your sojourn. Also, you will also need to present a round trip ticket and documents to prove that you have sufficient funds to pay for your travel.
When you fill your application at the website and pay, it is possible your application cannot be processed because of some website problem. You are encouraged to wait at least four hours before applying again. Otherwise, your application may not process at all.
