How to Obtain a Visa for India

U.S. citizens wishing to visit India are responsible for requesting the correct type of visa from the Indian Embassy or Consulate. There are generally no provisions for changing your immigration category (e.g., from tourist to work visa) once you have been admitted into the country. For all our programs in India volunteers and travellers come on tourist visas valid for six months. Before coming we advice you to check the Indian Government’s Ministry of Home Affairs website for any recent updates in visa requirements. If you travel on a tourist visa, you are generally given six months of legal stay upon entering India; extensions are rarely granted. Indian visas may be obtained in the U.S. from Travisa Visa Outsourcing the Government of India’s visa contractor.

This is more or less the documents that you will need for a Tourist Visa:

  • A completed Application form.
  • 2 Passport-type photographs required. No eye glasses to be worn in any photo.
  • Photocopy of a Birth Certificate is required for Minors age 0 -17, however the embassy reserves the right to ask for a copy of the applicants Birth Certificate from adults age 18 and above at their discretion.
  • Airline or Travel agency itinerary showing departure from the USA.
  • Proof of residential address in the United States: Please submit a clear copy of applicant's driver’s license, utility bill or phone bill as proof of residence in the Embassy's area of jurisdiction. Address on the document cannot include a P.O Box number and must match present address on the visa application form. Cell phone bill, credit card statement, bank statement or lease are not accepted as supporting documents.
  • Completed Cover Page and Credit Card Authorization forms.
