Can I apply for a Business Visit to India on a German passport?

Yes, you can. German passport holders can apply for all types of Indian electronic visa, including a Business visa. A Business eVisa is granted to German nationals who want to participate in business activities in India, including the following:

  • For selling/ purchasing some goods or services in India.
  • Participating in trade, exhibitions and business fairs.
  • Attending technical meetings, sales meetings and any other business meetings.
  • Setting up industrial or business ventures.

A physical visit to the office of the Indian Embassy or Consulate is not necessary for those who apply for an eBusiness Indian Visa (Business Visa for India) because the entire process can be completed online through India Immigration Services portal. After completing the application form with enough information, German business travelers need to pay the visa fee using electronic payment methods (Debit/ Credit Card, PayPal, and American Express) or Wire Transfer to the Bank of Cyprus.

The must-have documents to get an Indian Business eVisa for German passport holders include:

  • A passport that remains valid for at least six months from the date of entry into India
  • A scan of passport’s biographical page
  • A recent photograph of the applicant that meets photo requirements.

If any:

  • A business card
  • An invitation letter from host
  • An ID card/ passport of the host.
