What does an urgent India visa cost?

For urgent Indian visa application, an additional fee of € 17,50 is charged. This fee is added to the normal visa cost of € 49,95 per person. The cost can be paid for online quickly through Visa, MasterCard, American Express or PayPal.

What is the difference between a normal and an urgent application?

Firstly, all applications for the Indian visa (urgent or not) are checked manually by a visa specialist for frequently made mistakes. For instance, the provided digital passport photo and passport scan are checked to make sure they meet the requirements. All of the passport information is also checked for accuracy. If any clear errors are found, they are corrected immediately. When in doubt, you will be contacted to verify this information. This happens by e-mail as well as by phone or SMS.

With normal applications, this check takes place within a few days. If an urgent application procedure is chosen, checking takes place as soon as the passport photo and passport scan have been uploaded, even outside of office hours, in the weekends or during holidays.

As soon as the visa specialist has decided that the application form has been filled in correctly and all of the provided documentation is in order, the application is forwarded to an employee of the immigration service (in India). From that moment on, no influence can be exercised on the processing speed, which on average takes 3 working days.

Is the delivery time guaranteed?

An urgent delivery takes place within 3 working days on average, calculated from the moment that the form is filled in, the payment has been made, and the passport photo and passport scan have been provided. The immigration service, however, provides no guarantees on the delivery time. In rare cases it can occur that even an urgently applied for Indian visa suffers a delay. This is the case, for example, if the application form specifies a place to spend the night, which is known by the immigration service to be problematic. This can already be the case if previous travellers that have stayed there did not follow certain (visa-related) rules.

What else do I need to keep in mind?

Before you apply for an urgent Indian visa, it’s advised to at least closely read the following two pages on this website:

e-Visa.ie is a commercial and professional visa agency, and supports travellers in obtaining, among others, the India visa. e-Visa.ie acts as an intermediary and is in no way part of any government. You can also apply for a visa directly with the immigration service (25,63 USD per visa, via indianvisaonline.gov.in). However, not with our level of support. If you submit your application via e-Visa.ie, our support centre is available to you 24/7. In addition, we manually check your application and all the documents you provide before submitting it to the immigration authorities on your behalf. If we suspect any errors or omissions while doing so, we will personally contact you to ensure that your application can still be processed quickly and correctly. To use our services, you pay us 25,63 USD in consular fees, which we pay to the immigration service on your behalf, as well as € 25,59 in service fees as compensation for our services, including VAT. Our services have saved many travellers from major problems during their trip. Should an application be rejected despite our support and verification, we will refund the full purchase price (unless an application for a previous India visa was rejected for the same traveller).
