Indian Visa Application

Indian Visa

This information is for UK Citizens only-but other nationalities will find this information useful.

Today we applied for our Indian Visa’s. This needs to be completed at least 1 month before you leave to give you plenty time to allow it to be processed. You can either complete your application online or you can print the application and fill it in. You also have the option of either posting your application or you can book an appointment at your nearest application center. We have sent out application in and it should be processed withing 15 days Max. You can download your online application form here.

There were a few questions that I was stuck with when filling in my application form.

  • Place of Issue for the UK is IPS
  • When it asks you for address when staying in India just write down the address of a youth hostel or hotel, it’s ok if it changes at a later date.
  • When it asks you to list 2 Referees in India you can write ‘UK HIGH COMMISSION’ if you don’t know anyone in India.

Once you have filled in your application form you will need to attach two passport photos on the application. If you are planning on posting your application you will need to attach two passport size photos to your application, prepare a self addressed envelope for the return or your passports, this will need to be special delivery. You then send the application special delivery to:

India Visa Application Center
1-3, Canalside,
Uxbridge Road
Hayes, Middlesex, UB4 0JN

You will then need to  pay for your visa application either online or by postal cheque. The cost of a 6 Month Tourist Visa for a UK Citizen is £30 excluding the VFS service charge of  £9.05. You can see a chart of the different prices here.

I hope this post has helped inform you about Indian Visas. I would reccomend you to avoid ringing the premium number that is provided on their website as they charge 95p per minute. If you have any queries either get in touch with us or you can also check out their official website for Indian Visa Applications.

Thanks for reading
