Passport / Visa

The Indian government offers a traditional visa (stamped inside of the passport), or an eVisa, obtained online. All nationals of the European Union and multiple countries across the world are eligible for an eVisa, which should be applied for at least 4 days prior to travel date (but no further in advance that 30 days) and is accepted at 24 airports and 3 seaports countrywide. Special conditions apply to Pakistani passport holders or individuals with familial ties to Pakistan. Citizens of Bhutan, Nepal, and the Maldives are exempt from visa requirements (if not entering via mainland China).
