All visitors need a visa for India, except citizens of neighboring Nepal and Bhutan. The Indian government has introduced 60 day, double-entry electronic visas for citizens of 161 countries.
Tourist visas are generally issued for six months, depending on what nationality you are. Most visas are multiple entry visas.
The cost of an Indian Tourist Visa varies between countries according to the arrangement between governments.
The Indian visa application process is outsourced to private processing agencies in most countries. The Indian government has replaced most foreign companies with Indian companies. You will have two fees to pay – a Government processing fee and the visa company service fee.
When applying for an Indian Visa, you’ll need to complete an on-line application form. See Tips and Instructions for Completing the Indian Visa Application Form.
Along with your application and fee, for an Indian Tourist Visa you’ll need to submit your passport that’s valid for a least six months and has at least two blank pages, a recent passport sized photo, and details of your itinerary. In some countries, copies of flight tickets and proof of residential address may also be required.
New Delhi is the capital city of India. There are several languages in Delhi, which are spoken by various groups of people residing in the city. These languages in Delhi have been adapted from the different regions of India and they have blended smoothly with the city's rich culture. The main language spoken is Hindi. However, English is understood and spoken by almost everyone whom you will come into contact with, either at the airport, the hotels, the venue or in the shopping centers.
The official currency is the rupee.
September is in the fall / autumn in New Delhi and is typically the 5th warmest month of the year. Daytime maximum temperatures average around a warm 34°C (93°F), whilst at night 24°C (76°F) is normal.
Voltage in India is 220 to 240 volts, 50Hz. You will need an adaptor, which can be purchased in India. Hotels usually provide dual voltage razor sockets, 110 to 210 volts or 220 to 250 volts. Please ensure that you bring multi voltage chargers rather than 110 chargers with step-up/step-down transformers. These transformers get too hot and there is a high chance of them exploding. India mostly has round pinholes so please do ensure that you bring a flat to round pinhole converter. This is very important as otherwise you will have a problem in getting your phone and other electrical items charged.
This depends on what locations you will be visiting. Please consult your physician and follow their recommendations. You may also check the Centers for Disease Control website at www.cdc.gov/travel
We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance before travelling to India.
