India Visa

India is a vibrant nation of astonishing contrasts, where both traditional and modern cultures collide. Coupled with its bustling business scene, it is unsurprisingly one of the world’s most popular destinations.

At Gulfvisa, we’re dedicated to making it easier to travel to India from the UK, whether for holidays or business trips. Our India visa application process helps our customers to obtain tourist and business documentation from the Indian Visa Centre in London, saving you from having to complete the process yourself.

This means minimal effort for you, and added peace of mind that your passport and documentation will be handled by experts.


How to apply for an Indian visa

Applying for an Indian visa with Gulfvisa is done in four main steps:

  1. Check the guidelines - read up on the guidelines for which type of application you need to make. We offer customers an Indian Tourist visa or an Indian Business visa.
  2. Organise the relevant documents - follow our simple guidelines for completing the application forms. We provide a helpful guide for both Indian tourist and business visa applications.
  3. Purchase your required visa service - select the type of visa you need and pay online. We accept credit and debit cards, or Apple Pay.
  4. Submit your application - you should send the required documents to us via post. This includes your passport, passport-sized photos, and a declaration form. The processing time for an Indian visa is typically 3-4 days. However, those applying for a business visa can opt for our fast service that takes 1-2 days.

The type of visa you need will depend on the purpose of your visit. Gulfvisa’s India visa service only extends to visits being made for tourist or business purposes.

Travel to India - A Mini Guide

The world’s seventh largest, and second most populous country, India is a blend of different cultures and home to over 1.3 billion people. It’s, therefore, no surprise that millions decide to visit every year.

Indian Culture

With Indian civilisation beginning around 4,500 years ago, visitors can immerse themselves in one of the oldest—and perhaps the most unique—cultures in the world. Described by many as ‘Sa Prathama Sanskrati Vishvavara’—the first and the supreme culture—India is home to an assortment of different religions, languages, food, and more.

India is recognised as the birthplace of Hinduism and Buddhism, but its population is also comprised of Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, and several other world religions. Much of the nation’s distinctive art and architecture is rooted in spirituality, as are the various Indian holidays, such as Diwali, Onam, and Ugadi.

While over 450 languages are spoken in India, the country has no single official tongue. Hindi is spoken by most citizens in the north, and over 40% of the country in total, but it is not understood by many in the south. South Indians instead use languages such as Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam.

India's Economy

As well as its rich culture, the country’s thriving economy and wealth of business opportunities makes it alluring to corporate visitors as well.

The Indian economy has grown extremely quickly in recent years, and is predicted to be one of the top three global economic powers within the next few decades. Its young population is a major factor behind this optimistic forecast, alongside the huge foreign investment India has received and an increased integration into the global market.

India's Most Popular Destinations

Another must-visit is Agra. Home to the iconic Taj Mahal, the city’s abundance of Mughal-era buildings—including Agra Fort, Akbar’s tomb, and Itmad-ud-Daula—make it one of the most beautiful places in the world, let alone India.

Other popular destinations include Jaipur, Mumbai, and Kashmir, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of towns and villages throughout the country. These destinations give visitors a chance to experience Indian culture in a much more unique and intimate way, which is why so many visitors to India enjoy getting off the beaten track.

Getting documents verified and attested can be a long and tedious task, and unless you’re familiar with the process, there is plenty of room for mistakes to occur. Here at GulfVisa, our team are experts in getting documents attested the right way. We do everything on your behalf, including all administration, presenting, and delivery, to ensure everything is completed in a timely manner.
  1. We know the process: Document attestation is one of our core services, so we know the ins and outs of the entire process.
