Acceptance of a visa application and/or the visa fee does not guarantee issue of visa. The issue of visa, its category and duration are determined on the merits of each case.
The date for collection of visa would be intimated at the visa counter for applications in person. For collection of passports, the Fee Receipt must be presented. Passports can be collected at the counter between 16.00 hrs and 17.00 hrs on the date intimated or during any subsequent working day.
Visa applications may be withdrawn after issue of the fee receipt, but the visa fee is non-refundable.
Travel plans should not be finalized before obtaining a visa. Neither the Embassy nor the Visa Application Center will accept any liability for missed flights. All applicants are requested to apply for visa at least 2-3 weeks before the actual date of travel.
It may be noted that all visas are valid from the date of issue and not from the date of arrival in India. Applicants may take this into account while specifying the duration of visa required.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to check that all the details on the visa are correct and to seek any corrections that may be required. Neither the Embassy nor the Visa Application Center will accept any responsibility for inconvenience or financial loss caused by inadvertent inaccuracies in the visa.
Visitors who intend to stay in India for more than 180 days continuously are required to register themselves with the Foreigners’ Regional Registration Office. Journalist visa holders are required to contact the External Publicity Division of the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi on arrival (contact details at www.mea.gov.in) or the Press Information Bureau of the Government of India. (Contact details at http://www.pib.nic.in )
Applicants should ensure that they correctly specify the category of visa applied for, depending on the purpose of visit. It is normally not possible to change the visa category after entering India. Activities in India incompatible with the category of the visa may result in immediate revocation of the visa.
