Indian e-Visa requirements for Georgian citizens

In 2014, the Indian government established an electronic visa for many foreign individuals, including Georgian passport holders.

The purpose of the India e-Visa is to make the visa application process easier for tourists who want to have a short visit to India. Applicants no longer have to wait in huge lines at the embassy to obtain an Indian visa.

As a Georgian citizen, you can quickly obtain an e-Visa for India by filling out a simple electronic form online in a matter of minutes. Learn about the requirements to apply for an India visa online from Georgia below.

1. Types of India visa for Georgian citizens

There are four types of India e-Visas available for Georgian citizens:

  • e-Tourist Visa: This is a tourist visa that allows Georgian citizens to stay for up to 30 days from their arrival date. This type cannot be modified or extended in any way.
  • From 16 March 2022, you can use 2 other types of e-tourist visa in case you wish to stay in India longer, including India 1 year e-tourist visa and India 5 years e-tourist visa. They can be used for many purposes such as tourism, participation in a short-term yoga program, the enrollment on short-term courses in local languages or voluntary work (not exceeding one month). With these e-tourist multiple entry visas, you are allowed to stay in the country for 365 days (for 1 year e-tourist visa) and up to 5 years (for 5 years e-tourist visa) from the date of ETA issuance. However, you cannot stay continuously over 90 days for each visit.
  • e-Business visa: This type is solely necessary for business or trading, not for employment purposes. This visa grants multiple entries with a total stay of 365 days with each stay should not exceed 180 days.

Because Georgia is not on India's exemption list, the government fee is included in the total fee.

  • Normal: When Georgian citizens choose this service, they will have their e-visa within three business days.
  • Urgent: This service allows the applicant to receive their e-visa within 24 hours.

Payment method: Georgian applicants have the option of paying their receipt via electronic payment or wire transfer. If they select electronic payment, they can choose from Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and PayPal.

After receiving an India e-Visa, they should print a copy of the approved visa to give immigration officials at the Indian border. To enter the nation, Georgian citizens must also produce the same passport they used to fill out the e-Visa form.
