Finally, India is making it easier for tourists to visit this incredible country! If you’re from one of the 74 countries highlighted on the map or listed below, now there’s no need to apply for an Indian tourist visa weeks or months ahead. With a minimum of 4 days and a maximum of 34 days before you show up in India, you can go online, fill out the visa application form, upload your passport info page and passport photo, pay online and get an email confirmation. Print that out and bring it with you to the immigration officer when you land in Delhi and voila, you’ll be stamped in.

Note that this is not a Visa on Arrival program. You have to apply online before getting to India. This is an e-Tourist Visa program.

Here is the e-Tourist Visa website where you can apply for your visa: https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/info1.jsp
