About the India Paper Visa

1. When does the India visa start?

The India visa is valid from the date of issue. The start date is based on when the consulate issues the visa, not the travel dates provided on the itinerary.


2. How far in advance can I apply for the visa?

There is no limit as to how far in advance you can apply for a India visa.


3. Is a India visa valid in an expired passport?

Yes, a valid India visa in an expired passport is still valid pending your name has not changed and you travel with both the expired passport and the valid visa along with the new passport as well.


4. What if I need to withdraw my documents from the consulate?

If you need to withdraw your passport and documents while the visa is in process, you may do so through an online withdrawal request by clicking here.

Please note both our service fee and consulate fees are non-refundable.
