Tourist Visa

Hi All.

Can you go to the Indian High Commission in Birmingham to obtain a Tourist Visa. Do you just join the queue, we will have all the relevant paperwork ready.

Never done this before always done it via the post, but don't have enough time now.

I don't know what it's like this year, but last November I went to Birmingham for my visa and the queues were horrendous. I arrived at about 8.30am to find about 300 people in front of me and at least 50 of us were turned away. They issues tickets like on the deli counter at Tescos and once they have issued so many, they turn everyone else away. I had to go back the next day, got there about 6.45am and there were at least 20 people in front of me at that time in the morning.

My advice would be to arrive as early as possible and join the queue, you then hand over your paperwork and have to return later in the day where you join another long queue to collect it. have fun!
