Can I apply for an Indian visa without an invitation?

Yes, you can apply for an Indian visa without an invitation. In most circumstances, an invitation is not required in order to acquire an Indian tourist visa. The type of visa you require, as well as the application process, will be determined by the purpose of your journey to India. However, if you travel to India with a business purpose, you must provide an invitation letter.

India provides many types of visas for various purposes, including tourist visas, business visas, and medical visas. Each visa category has its own set of criteria, and the papers you must provide may differ appropriately.

  • A valid passport, a current passport-sized photograph, a completed visa application form, proof of adequate finances to cover your stay, and a travel plan, for example, are normally required for a tourist visa.
  • A letter of invitation from the Indian firm you want to visit or a letter from your employer describing the purpose of your trip may be required for a business visa.

It's essential to carefully review the visa requirements and guidelines specific to the type of visa you are applying for and to submit all the necessary documents to support your application.
