Visa Procurement

Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your planned date of departure from India.

After booking your holiday, please provide us with your passport details as soon as possible so that we can proceed to book trains and flights tickets on your behalf, if included within your holiday.

All foreign nationals must obtain a visa for a visit to India, as well as Nepal or Sri Lanka if joining our Highway to Himalayas or Delhi to Colombo tours, or any tailormade holidays which combine India with these countries.

It is essential that your India visa is obtained prior to travel. India does accept some nationalities on a visa-upon-arrival basis, however please check before travel if you are eligible.
