If you already know India is going to be your next travel destination, let me tell you it’s your best decision. I loved India and I would go back there anytime. It’s also true, it’s not for everyone, but it’s an experience. So let’s not waste time and find out how to get the Indian touristic visa.
1. Take a photo
It has to be square (5×5 cm) and on white background. Don’t forget to also ask for a digital copy because you will need to also upload it later in the application form.
2. Fill in the Application Form
Go to the official website and fill in the Application Form found in the Regular Touristic Visa section.
You will have to provide some details about your background and your stay in India. Make sure you have a contact person and an address. I assume you can put anything here as they don’t really ask.
3. Hotels and Flights
You will need to provide a proof of your flights, both in and out of the country. Besides that, you will need at least a hotel booking during your stay. We made some free cancellation bookings and it worked perfectly.
4. Bank Statement
On your bank statement it should show that you’ve got at least 900€ per person.
I didn’t do my proper research about how to get the touristic Indian visa, so I didn’t know about this. Fortunately, the staff from the Embassy was nice and accepted some crappy screenshots from my bank app.
5. Pay the Tax for The Indian Touristic Visa
The tax for the visa is around 1000€.
They don’t accept payment by card so make sure you have enough cash.
Easy, right? Now the only thing left is to go out there and explore.
