Easier than I thought..
- I have just landed in Delhi and the visa on arrival process was quite painless. I had copies of my passport and my first nights hotel booking, which were not asked for, 2 passport photos of which only one was needed and the absolute must, a ticket out of the country no later than 30 days from arrival. The paperwork took about 5 minutes to fill out and the interviewer will ask a lot of questions...I am a 51 year old female travelling alone and he seemed to think I was working for the embassy or the NZ government so I got a fair few questions based on that assumption, made me smile though. Try to have exactly US$60 on you, it'll save you time (15 min). 45 minutes all up and once you're stamped you'll be directed to the diplomatic passport line so no need to join the other, much longer queue. Was told on arrival that the 2 month exclusion still stands for this visa which is not what I was told at the Indian Embassy in Bangkok. Anyway, all good and happy to be here!

Visa on arrival for filipinos
- Hi elizabeth, Im from Manila too and travelling to Maldives with with my partner. I just need some clarification.. For the Visa on Arrival for FIlipinos, does it mean that we are onoy valid to travel by flight through the major airports? How about if we are travelling to a minor airport like in Varanasi or Trivandrum, does it mean that we could not do that? Or as long as we have the Visa stamp from one of the major airports, we're pretty much cool to travel anywhere in India within the visa validity? Hope you could enlighten me. Thanks! ANSWER: the visa on arrival is only issued at Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata airports. So you need to arrive in India at one of these airports to get it. Once you have the visa you can travel anywhere in India.

- I recently applied for a tourist visa through Travisa Outsourcing for travel to Leh, New Delhi, Varanasi, and Agra with a tour group. Travisa Outsourcing responded that I needed to request a special permit for these protected areas which I did but that process may take eight weeks and I will miss my trip if it takes eight weeks. The unfortunate thing is these areas are not on the restricted list. Someone at the Embassy has bad information. None of the other twenty students on this tour have had the same problem. Travisa Outsourcing will not call the Consulate for me and I do not know what to do. Does anyone know an Indian person who might help me at the consulate? Thank you.
