   Visa Requirements
 
Conference Visa
 
Conference Visa is issued for attending conferences/seminars/meetings in India. A letter of invitation from the organizer of the conference is to be submitted along with the visa application. Delegates coming to attend conferences may combine tourism with attending conferences. In this case, there are few things you need to take care of, before travelling to India.
 
Tourist Visa
 
There are three kinds of visas for tourists.
 
  • The 15-day single / double-entry transit visa. This visa is valid for 20 days from the date of Issue.
  • The 3 month multiple-entry visa. This visa is valid for 90 days from the date of first entry into India, which must be within 30 days from the date of its validation date.
  • The 6-month multiple-entry visa.
Visa Extension
 
It is virtually impossible to get the 15 day or 3 month visa extended. Only the 6 month visa can be extended. The normal extension period is of 15 days. Further extension should be avoided unless it is an emergency.
 
A 15 day extension on the 6 month visa is issued by the Foreigner's Regional Registration Office (FRRO) at any of four metro cities : Delhi, Kolkatta, Mumbai and Chennai. The FRRO office is open on weekdays, 09:30 hrs to 13:30 hrs and 14:00 hrs to 16:00 hrs. A 15-day extension is given only if confirmed air tickets are not available for which no fee is charged.

If you are planning to stay in India for more than four months, be careful with your documents related to travel.
