Is it possible to have an urgent appointment for India visa application?


Good Morning Respected Sir/ Madam, This is to kindly inform you that I, Florinda, Application ID: RPXZS64CR1P, Passport Number: CA23761 had applied for a 5-Year E-Visa (Tourist) on 24 March 2022. It has been more than Seven Days since I had applied but I haven't received any updates. I therefore kindly request your timely help and your kind permission in this matter so as to grant me the required Visa as this will be of great help to me to visit my Family Back Home in India. Thanking You


I would like to speak to someone regarding applying for an e-Visa for India (from Australia) ASAP, please. Kindly let me know if you can help me.


Hi good evening, can you update us on our 5 year E-visa? Lots of your information on Google and your VFS section are not up-to-date and even when we phone these sections up they just pass you on to other sections. So if at all possible if you have any information regarding this i.e. can we go in November for 180 days etc, we have flights precooked but until we have confirmation from you that we can use the E-visa 5yr that we have we cannot book flights or our insurance. We would be very grateful for any good news you have for us thanks kind regards.


Hello All, Please let me know, Are e-visas only approved during working hours or is it possible to receive confirmation/approval anytime of the day? I know it is past 9pm IST so I'm wondering if it is possible to receive a decision in the next 6 hours. Thank you,


Hello, I have previously applied e-TOURIST Visa for my son. It was granted for 3 months. I wanted to apply for a 5 year Multiple Entry e Visa and mistakenly applied for e-TOURIST Visa. I applied for a e-Visa 5 year Multiple entry application again with Application ID W6GM25E4PW72 for urgent processing. My wife's grandfather passed away this week and She wanted to travel urgently with my son, for whom I have applied for a e-Visa. They will be staying for 3 months and I hope reapplying for e-Visa will not be an issue. Please let me know. Thanks


My daughter's date of birth is 17 November 2019. She had expire visa on 19 March 2022 but she got a ticket 4april 2022 . So we need visa extension. As we provide important documents but in processing they demand more and more documents which we are unable to provide. Please give her a visa extension before leaving India. Thank you
