[h4]VISAS FOR INDIA[/h4]

[fancybox title="ATTENTION!" background="#A52A2A" ]You will be required to submit your passport to the consulate of India. You will NOT have access to your passport until the visa process is finished by the consulate. Please plan accordingly. The consulate will not release your passport until the visa process is finished. Foreign consulates do not accept demands from travelers. They do not work around a traveler’s time-frame, and may request additional documents not listed in the general instructions at any given time and circumstance without notice.[/fancybox]

[acc_toggle style=”1″ title=”Processing Time“]

  • US citizens: 12-15 business days
  • Non-US citizens: 3-4 Weeks

In most cases, TOURIST and BUSINESS visas for US citizens can be issued within the above listed times. Other types of visas and foreign (non-US) passports may take longer to be finished and/or require additional documents.
