Visa for India

Tourist Visa for India
If the type of passport you have or the purpose of your trip is not for tourism, you should apply for the appropriate type of Indian visa by consulting the websites of the Embassy of India in Madrid or the Indian Government.
During the visa application process you are required to upload two files: a passport photograph and a copy of the passport data page. We recommend you to consult on the same page the specifications of each of these steps.
In addition, you will need to fill in travel information (dates, itinerary, etc.), passport and visa information or personal information such as address, job title, criminal record or details of the father and mother. After this, you will be asked to upload your passport photo and data page.
Before traveling, do not forget to check on the same website the status of your application and that it has been confirmed (“GRANTED”), as well as to print a copy.
