I recently applied for a tourist visa to India. So, today, here’s a post to share with readers the process of applying for an Indian tourist visa in Ipoh.
Although tourists can apply for the Indian e-Tourist Visa online (link), I decided to go to the Visa Outsource Centre in Ipoh and paid an additional RM25 as service fee.
*two copies of photo of applicant for Indian Visa (white background / size: 2in X 2in)
*travel itinerary in India (including accommodation and contact number in India)
*fees: RM220 (visa application fee) + RM25 (service fee). Cash terms only.
Those who do not have the required photographs may take an instant photo at the booth in the centre. This is a separate charge.
At the visa centre, applicants have to undergo mandatory collection of Biometric Data of the face and all ten fingerprints.
Submission of visa is from 9am to 2pm from Monday to Friday. Approval requires four working days. Tourist visa is valid for six months from date of travel.
Visa collection is strictly from 4pm to 5.30pm (Monday to Friday).
