India is like dozens of countries rolled into one and there’s plenty to see and do. The country’s vast size and diverse landscape will take some planning and preparation to navigate — but it’s easy to do so with an Indian Visa. From applying for an e-Visa to overland travel and extending your stay, here’s everything you need to know about getting an India Visa.

eVisas can be issued to US citizens who wish to visit India for tourist, business or medical purposes. Unlike traditional visas, e-Visas are valid for 30 days after arrival, 1 year after the date of issue and are non-convertible. Upon arrival at an Indian airport, you will be required to submit your digital Electronic Travel Authorization and biometric details to the Immigration Officer. CIBTvisas does not handle these appointments.

Your passport must be a standard, not official or diplomatic passport and must be valid for at least six months beyond your planned travel dates. You will need to provide a copy of your return flight ticket and proof of sufficient funds for your trip. If traveling with a child, you will need a letter of consent from the non-accompanying parent(s).

You will also need a clear scan of the photo and information pages of your passport. Photographs must be taken against a white or light-colored background and should show your entire head with both ears visible. Ensure that your photos meet the India Visa Photo Requirements.
