Types of Indian Tourist Visa:

The tourist visa itself is available in three different types depending upon the duration of the visit and should be applied for according to the purpose of the visit.

  • 30-Day Tourist e- Visa:
    The 30 day visa allows visitors to stay in the country for 30 days from the date of entry into the country and is a Double Entry Visa meaning you can enter the country twice within the visa's validity period.
    However, there is a date of expiry mentioned in the visa before which you would have to enter the country.
  • 1 Year Tourist e-Visa:
    The 1 year tourist e-visa is valid for 365 days from the date of issue of the e-visa. Unlike the 30 day tourist visa, the validity of the 1 year visa is determined by the date of its issue, not the date of the visitor's entry into the country.
    This is a Multiple-Entry Visa, meaning you can enter the country multiple times within the period of the visa's validity.
  • 5 Year Tourist e-Visa:
    This visa is valid for 5 years from the date of its issue and is also a Multiple-Entry Visa.
