Indian e-Visa for German Citizens

India introduced an electronic visa system in 2014 to facilitate the application process for many eligible countries, including Germany. There are three types of e-Visa for India for German citizens - tourist, business, and medical one.

The tourist visa is issued as a single-entry authorization valid for 120 days and allowing a 30-day stay. The remaining two - business and medical visas - are multiple-entry authorizations and enable their holders to visit India numerous times and stay from 60 to 180 days, while the validity period is from 4 months to 1 year (depending on the selected type).

No matter the type of e-Visa, every German citizen needs to pay the service fee of 129 Euro.

All citizens of Germany can apply for an electronic visa for India instead of going to an Indian diplomatic post in their home country. Forget about long queues and hours spent waiting for your turn at the Indian Embassy. Now, all you need to get your Indian visa is mainly a valid passport and an electronic device. Check also if you're connected to the Internet and go to our application form.

If you plan a holiday in India or a business trip, an e-visa is a perfect solution for you! Submit your online India visa application at least 3 business days before visiting India, and enjoy your trip!
