Two recent 2 x 2 passport type photographs, in color, front view and with a plain/light background.

Other Forms:
Proof of residential address in the United States: Clear copy of applicant's driver's license, utility bill or phone bill. Address on the document must match address on the visa application form.

-AND-

Copy of Birth Certificate: A photocopy of the applicant's birth certificate showing parents' names, date of birth and nationality. Any birth certificates that do not originate from the US or India must be translated into English and must be notarized. Please note: You should not send the original birth certificate; Travisa cannot be responsible for original documents.
5
Special Instructions:
All persons of Indian origin as well as accompanying spouse and dependent family members must apply for an Entry Visa (not Tourist Visa).
6
Global Service Order Form:
This is Travisa's service order form, where you will provide your contact and shipping information, choose the visa processing needed and make your payment. You must print the completed form and send it to Travisa with all other supporting documents.
India Visa Validity:
When a visa is transferred from an expired or canceled passport to a new passport, a new stamp is issued but the visa validity does not change. The new visa will expire on the same date as the visa being transferred.
Indian Visa Processing Time:
India visas are usually processed in 5 business days. Rush visa processing may be available for additional fees. Please visit our Indian Consular Fees page for details. Rush service is defined as any attempt made by Travisa to retrieve the visa in less time than the amount required by the Indian embassy or consulate to process the visa.

In order to ensure that visa applications for most embassies/consulates are submitted on the day that we receive them, they should be shipped to us via FedEx Priority Overnight (not First Overnight or Standard Overnight).

Non-refundable tickets or reservations should not be purchased until all visas and passports are secured and in your possession.
