Is an India transit visa required for connecting flights?

Yes, an India transit visa is necessary if you are staying in the transit region for more than 24 hours or if you need to leave the transit area to enter India.

There are, however, a few exceptions to this rule. You do not need a transit visa to enter India if:

  • You are a citizen of a nation with which India has a visa waiver agreement.
  • You hold a current Indian visa.
  • You are a member of the flight crew on a flight passing through India.
  • You are a guest on a cruise ship that is stopping in India for a few days.

To apply for an India transit visa, you will need to submit the following documents:

  • Valid passport - obtaining a passport will be simple, and if you already have one, check the expiration date to confirm that it is still valid.
  • A current digital picture of oneself is required. Face motions should be avoided, and the backdrop should be white. Simply scan it and submit it.
  • A scan of the information page from a passport.
  • Payment methods - We accept a variety of payment options. You may use a credit or debit card, as well as Paypal, which has grown in popularity.

If you are unclear if you require an India transit visa, consult the Indian visa requirements. You may apply for an Indian transit visa on the Indian immigration services website.
