Thinking of going to India? Well it has just become a whole lot easier due to the changes to the visa application process on the 15th August 2015. Before you had to have multiple copies of a photo and fill in long forms asking about you and your family history and send it by post. That has now been simplified with the new eTourist Visa.

The application can be made online as long as you meet the eligibility criteria, the main points of which are that your have a ‘British Citizen’ passport which is valid for at least six months from your arrival date, you have a return or onward ticket and you have enough funds to support your stay.

 At the moment you can only use this process if you are entering Indian through one of 16 major gateways such as Delhi, Goa, Mumbai and Trivandrum. The visa is valid for 30 days from the date of entry and there is a fee of US$60 which is non refundable. You can apply for your visa between 30 and 4 days before your trip starts.

So if you want to see the Taj Mahal, play with tiger cubs at an orphanage or visit one of the many spectacular temples India has to offer then contact us today on 01323 446550 or email info@experienceholidays.co.uk to plan your next bespoke tailor made holiday to India.
