Indian visa for business/employment

Business visas are for foreign nationals wishing to enter India for business-related activities like conferences and meetings.

Journalist visa for India

Most foreign nationals may enter India on a journalist visa for up to 180 days without the need to register. Different rules apply to nationals of Pakistan and Afghanistan. For longer stays, however, journalists must register with the relevant Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FFRO) or Foreigners Registration Office (FRO). Visa extensions are possible both for accredited reporters and freelancers.

Medical visa

Foreign nationals may obtain a medical visa (MV) or medical attendant visa (MXV) to cover a period of medical treatment in India. For short-term visits (up to 180 days) most applicants will not need to register once they are in the country. Different provisions apply to nationals of Pakistan and Afghanistan. For more details see the Indian Medical Visa page.

India visa for tourists

Foreign nationals can obtain a tourist visa for sight-seeing, recreation or visiting family. These visas are not extendable or convertible and applicants will normally have to wait at least two months before they can re-enter India on another tourist visa. Foreign nationals from nine countries also have the right to apply for a single-entry tourist visa on arrival.
