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.
Travel visas are an essential part of your holiday and you can’t get on with your adventure until you have them but they can be complicated things to sort out.

Our visa department will fill out the visa application forms for you to check, make sure that you provide the correct paperwork and submit your visa application for you.

AU, NZ, US & Canadian Residents
Australian, New Zealand, USA and Canadian passport holders (and some other nationalities too) are now able to take advantage of India's new online visa service. Information about the e-Tourist Visa (eTV) process can be found at:
The online application should be submitted a minimum of 4 days and a maximum of 30 days in advance of proposed date of arrival. Entry to India must be within 30 days of the eTV approval date and the visa is valid for 30 days from arrival.
To apply online you'll need to complete the application form, upload a copy of your passport data page, upload a passport sized photograph (full face, front view and eyes open, white background with no shadow) and pay the visa cost, currently USD$60.
After submitting your application, you will receive a receipt number and within the coming days (the Government of India notes this as 4 days) you will receive authorization.
You will need to print a copy of this document to check-in for your flight and again at immigration when arriving to India. You are also required to carry a copy of the eTV at all times during your stay.
These are 30 day, single entry visas and are valid for arrival via Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Cochin, Goa, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Trivandrum airports. If arriving to India via another airport or route you will need to procure your visa with the nearest Indian embassy in ADVANCE of your arrival.
If your planned stay in India is longer than 30 days or you require a multi-entry visa please contact your nearest Indian embassy or follow the below links for more information.
