FAQs

Validity of a visa is the length of period that the visa is good for, namely from the issuing date to the deadline of entering India for the bearer of the visa.

A visa becomes void once validity expires regardless of whether its entries are used or not. The visa holder should apply for a new visa if he or she intends to visit India again.

Entries are the number of times permitted to enter India during the validity of a visa. A visa becomes invalid if there is no more valid number of entries left. To use such a visa will lead to decline of entry.
