India is truly a land of enchantment, with lush forests, spectacular wildlife, deep history, and an astonishing array of cultures, customs, and cuisines. It’s also more accessible to Australian citizens than ever before, thanks to the country’s eVisa program.

Today, Australian citizens traveling to India can apply for a pre-approved eVisa before their trip. Getting an eVisa means reduced time and expense during the application process, as well as a much easier experience entering the country by air. eVisas have replaced traditional Embassy visas in the vast majority of cases where Australians are traveling to India for tourism, business, conferences, or medical treatment.

However, India offers multiple types of eVisa, and the task of figuring out which one works for you isn’t always simple. There are three different types of eVisa, and they all have different parameters. Who is eligible for what? How to choose which is best? In this article, Evisa Express explains eVisa options for Australian citizens traveling to India in a way that’s clear and simple to understand.

The three types of eVisa to India

India offers three types of eVisa to Australian citizens:

  1. e-Tourism Visa
  2. e-Business Visa
  3. e-Medical Visa

Read on for the full details of each type of eVisa.

1. e-Tourism Visa

India is home to truly diverse geography, nature and ways of life. No wonder it’s a top spot for Australian citizens on holiday. Fortunately for travelers, the e-Tourism Visa is quite generous and flexible, allowing Australians plenty of time and freedom to enjoy the country’s unique beauty.

Details about the e-Tourism Visa:

  • This visa is good for multiple entries and exits into and out of India
  • It is valid for 365 days from the date of approval (must be used within 365 days of approval)
  • Australian citizens can remain in India for a total of 90 days within the 365-day validity period. These 90 days may be consecutive or divided between separate visits.

2. e-Business Visa

The Indian economy is thriving, and represents the full spectrum of human economic activity, from agriculture to manufacturing, to high-tech. Indian companies can also afford to boast when it comes to having robust partnerships with companies in Australia and around the world. The e-Business Visa makes it easy for Australian businesspeople to forge relationships in India and stay in close contact with their Indian counterparts.

Details about the e-Business Visa:

  • This visa is good for multiple entries and exits into and out of India
  • It remains valid for 365 days from the date of approval (must be used within 365 days of approval)
  • Australian citizens can remain in India for a total of 180 days within the 365-day validity period. These 180 days may be consecutive or divided between separate visits.

3. e-Medical Visa

India is famed throughout the world for top-quality medical care that is often also less expensive than in other countries. As a result, India receives many visitors seeking treatment, coming from Australia or even farther! The e-Medical Visa makes it easier for Australians to receive medical care in India.

Details about the e-Medical Visa:

  • The eVisa is valid for 120 days, therefore, the first entry has to take place within 120 days from the approval.
  • The document once approved allows you to enter the country three times within a period of 60 days from the first entry.
  • Australian citizens can remain in India for a total of 60 days within the 60-day validity period.

How can I get an eVisa to India?

It’s easy and cost-effective for Australians to get an eVisa to India when applying with Evisa Express. All you need to apply for either of the three visas is:

  • A scan or digital photo of the bio-data page of your valid passport
  • The details of your trip

  • A recent photograph

The following additional documentation is required for e-Business and e-Medical Visas:

  • e-Business Visa: Letter or business card from the Indian company with which the traveler intends to cooperate

  • e-Medical Visa: Letter from the institution (i.e., hospital,) where the traveler’s treatment will be provided

I’ve applied with Evisa Express, and my eVisa has been approved! Now what?

Great! All you need to do now is to print out your eVisa and bring it with you when you enter India. You will be required to show it to travel authorities at your point of entry.
