Things we think you should know:
Entry into India:
Passengers do not need to show proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test before travel. However, you must comply with instructions and surveillance measures when you arrive in India, including:
- Thermal screening of passengers
- Random COVID-19 testing of 2% of all international travellers over 12 years old upon arrival in India
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, follow the instructions of national and local health authorities. This may include testing or being taken to a medical facility for isolation.
To avoid problems at immigration, make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your date of entry into India.
Your passport must also:
- Be machine-readable
- Have 2 blank pages for your visa
Foreign nationals who arrive at an Indian port holding non-machine-readable passports will be denied entry.
Applying for a visa or e-visa
Find out how to apply for a visa from the Indian Bureau of Immigration. Depending on your requirements you may be able to apply for:
Regular (paper) visa
e-visa (see the site ‘FAQs’ for restrictions on airports and seaports of entry)
Check your eligibility and any restrictions before you apply and allow plenty of time for your application to be processed.
There is more information on the website of High Commission of India in London.
