Do Israeli passport holders need a visa for India?

Yes. Israeli citizens are required to have a visa to enter India because Israel is not included in the Indian government's visa waiver scheme.

India has recently seen a steady increase in tourist arrivals, especially after establishing the Indian electronic Visa system. Blessed with numerous superb natural landscapes, gorgeous beaches, and many attractive heritage sites, India is truly a must for every traveler's bucket list. E-Visa has been made available by the Government of India to citizens of eligible countries, including Israel. This electronic system eliminates the need for Israelis to visit an Indian embassy or the consulate to get a visa. Israeli citizens can now apply for an Indian visa from the comfort of their homes, avoiding long queues and long waiting times.

There are 04 types of Indian eVisa for Israeli citizens to apply for:

  • Tourist eVisa: 30 days, 1 year, or 5 years. This visa is granted to Israeli citizens wishing to visit India for tourist activities or casual visits to their relatives.
  • Business eVisa: Israeli passport holders can use this visa to participate in business activities in India.
  • Conference eVisa: This visa allows Israeli nationals to attend conferences, seminars, or workshops organized in India.
  • Medical eVisa: Israeli citizens who need to receive medical treatment, including treatment under the Indian system of medicine should apply for this type of visa.
