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.
