Seeking help regarding Indian tourist visa application

I 've gone through the official website ( http://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/ ) again and again ...trying to find a way to download a checklist which is required to be submitted along with the application form, but failed! So frustrated !

Anyone knows how/ where to download this checklist for applying a Indian tourist visa please?

Many thanks in advance!

Not sure how you download it. I recently applied for a tourist visa. I am a British passport holder. All I had to hand in was my passport, the application form and two pictures. You need to make sure the pictures are the correct size (they are different to British passport pic size). I received my visa after two days.

Just Google "postal application India Visa" and click on link below

Postal Application - India Visa Information - UK

in.vfsglobal.co.uk/postalapplication.html

Dont forget your visa is valid from DATE OF ISSUE not the day you enter India.

We are arriving in September and applied last month for our visas so had to request a 6 month visa.

Your passport photo has to be larger than the standard photo we are used to.

We have just done ours and all went smoothly.

Hi whitchurch. If you look on this link to a Visa Guide which has been put together by meerkat on the Goa forum, you will find links to all the documents you need for your application.

tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g297604-c202264/Goa…

Scroll down a little way and the documents are listed under "The following documentation should be sent."

You should be able to get them at most photo shops like Snappy Snaps. I think some photo booths might do them as well. But I think best option is to go to a store and specifically ask for an Indian visa picture. I did mine at snappy snaps and it cost £12 for four pictures.

The photo me booths do them at a cost of £7 for four. They are found at railway stations and supermarkets. Don't know where they would be in Cardiff.

Here in Perth (Australia) I just called my local pharmacy (they do normal passport pics) and asked if they had the equipment to make it larger (2" x 2"). Not all had the equipment but finally found one who did. We paid aud $25.00 for 4 which was a bit of a shock.

best to have some extras done because if you plan on getting a local sim card you need 2 pics plus a photo copy of your passport and visa and your local drivers license.

Good luck...bit of mucking around but sense of achievement once you get it.

cheers and good luck
