How to get an urgent Indian e-visa

An urgent Indian e-visa is given to those foreigners who have to come to India on an emergency basis. The visa is also called an Emergency Indian visa. If you live out of India, and you need to come to India for emergency and unplanned cases like the death of your relative or loved one, attending the court for legal purposes and your relative or loved one is suffering from a serious disease, then you can apply for an urgent tourist-visa to come to India. Unlike other visas, an Emergency visa to India/Urgent Indian evisa application takes much less time to be processed. If you want to come to India for the purposes like sightseeing, visiting a friend, attending cross-cultural marriages, then you can’t apply for an Indian emergency visa because such situations are not considered emergency ones. Therefore, you need to apply for other types of visas. One thing that makes the urgent/emergency Indian e-visa application is that it can be processed even on weekends for those who have to come to India for some emergency or unplanned reasons.

The Emergency Indian e-visa issuance takes 1 to 3 working days when the application is completed properly, required documents are submitted and full payment is done. For an extremely urgent visa, you may need to pay a higher fee to benefit from this convenience. This Urgent Processing or Fast track Visa Services are available for Tourist, Medical, Business, Conference and Medical Attendant visa seekers.

Things to remember when you apply for the Urgent/Emergency visa to India:

In comparison to other visas, getting an Emergency visa approved is more difficult, as it is subject to approval only. In medical and death cases, you will be required to provide the officials with a copy of letter from the hospital to prove the illness or death. If you don’t do so, your Emergency Visa to India application will be rejected.

Take full responsibility for providing correct details like your phone number, email address and social messenger for communication regarded additional information.

The Urgent visa application is not processed on the National holidays of India like Republic Day on 26 January, Independence Day on 15 August, Gandhi Jayanti on 2 October etc.

If an applicant has more than one valid passport, damage in the passport, an expired or valid visa, already given visa still valid or multiple visas, then their application may take up to 4 days for the Government decision.

Documents required for an Emergency Visa to India

As already mentioned, you have to submit copies of documents proving the death or illness of your dear one. 

A scanned copy of your passport having a six-month validity with two blank pages. The size should be 4MB or less. a recent coloured photo of yours having a white background to ensure clarity. You may use a digital image taken with a high-quality smartphone for this purpose.

How you will receive the Urgent Indian e-visa:

Like other visas, the Emergency visa is also given on arrival. The visa will be stamped in the airport you use to reach India. You can reach the particular immigration officer by following the signboards that are clearly noticeable.
