India Visa

Are you traveling to India?
Do you need a rush India visa? International Passport and Visa specializes in providing rush, secure and reliable expedited visa services for our clients traveling on short notice. The Indian Government issues two types of visas, an electronic visa (e-Visa) and a traditional visa that is stamped in your passport prior to your trip. The e-Visa is processed and issued electronically and sent to you by email. When you arrives in India, your bio-metric information is taken at the airport and your passport is stamped like the traditional visa. Citizens of the United States and 160 other countries are eligible to apply for India e-Visa. If you are not eligible/don’t apply for e-visa to India you must apply and obtain your visa in the traditional way with the visa stamped in your passport before entering India. We at International Passports and Visas can help you with all types of India either e-visa or traditional visa whether you reside in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica or any other city in the United States.
