India tourist visa - Confusing!?

Travel Forums Asia India tourist visa - Confusing!?

1. Posted by andyuk2010 (Budding Member 45 posts) 7y Star this if you like it!


I am travelling to India and am looking at the process of applying for a tourist visa/ 6months.
I am aware it is valid from date of issue not date of travel.

Can someone please confirm the following options as correct or where i am going wrong.

Go to: - Fill in online application form - Go to chosen embassy location e.g. London Victoria on date given/chosen - hand in passport - collect when ready or recieve via post.

Or can we hand write the forms and hand in with passport and turn up whenever we like? or just do everything by post?!

Any help much appreciated

According to the website you gave, you have three options for submitting visa application.

We have just done this.
We went to the site you have and went to online application, filled out, (you get option to pay online or send in post)printed, and sent to India Visa Application centre in Hayes, Middlesex with 2 passport photos and passports.
You will need to send Special Delivery and include a Special Delivery envelope so they can send back passport etc. We paid about £10 for this. Done this just before xmas so still waiting for Visa to come back.
