Indian e-Visa for Russian Citizens

In order to make it much simpler for foreign visitors to visit India, the Indian government decided to introduce an electronic visa system. As a result, nowadays, Russian citizens visiting India don't have to bother anymore with arranging an embassy appointment and then going through the never-ending application procedures to obtain a traditional visa.

e-Visa to India for Russian citizens comes in three different types. Depending on the particular traveler's needs, they can choose tourist, business, or medical electronic visa. Every type differs in terms of the number of entries, validity, and allowed period of stay. 

The e-visa application process is much simpler and more straightforward as you can complete it even sitting back in your chair. 15 minutes are enoughto submit an online application, while the processing of your Indian visa request shouldn't take more than 3 business days! Doesn't it sound great?
