Everybody knows that we need a visa to visit other country. Here I want to share my experience in applying e-Visa to India.
Visitors to India can either apply for a regular visa or an e-Visa. The e-Visa is free but it's valid for a shorter duration. e-Visa has 5 sub-categories :
- e-Tourist visa,
- e-Business visa,
- e-Medical visa,
- e-Medical Attendant visa and
- e-Conference visa.
You must apply e-Visa based on your purpose of visitting India. You can apply e-Visa minimum 4 days in advance of the date of arrival with a window of 120 days.
I applied e-tourist visa on 5 Nov 2018, and that also in afternoon and on 7 Nov 2018 is Diwali session so I was thinking that I might not get the e-Visa. But right on the 7 November 2018 at 7.30 pm (Indonesia time) I got an email that my e-Visa is granted. OMG, I was so happy. Here I amaze to Indian government, that even on Diwali/ their big day also they still proceed my e-Visa.
The required documents to apply -Visa are very simple, they are :
- Passport (should have at least six months validity from the date of arrival in India. The passport should have at least two blank pages for stamping by the Immigration Officer)
