India eVisa information
The Indian Government introduced an eVisa scheme on 1 January 2010. It was initially tested for citizens of five countries. A year later, it was extended to include a total of 11 countries. And, from 15 April 2014 it was extended to include South Korea.
This visa-on-arrival scheme has been replaced by an online visa system, effective from 27 November 2014. The system is being introduced in phases and has initially been made available to citizens of 100 countries, including the 12 countries previously eligible for a tourist visa on arrival.
