Apply on-line for Indian Visas:

Bio-Metric features on Visas:

With effect from November 16, 2017, it has been decided to implement the guidelines for incorporating bio-metric features of visa applicants in the current visa system. Therefore, all visa applicants will have to visit the Embassy alongwith the visa application, passport and supporting documents on the date of appointment and appear at the visa counter for capturing the bio-metric features i.e. photograph and finger prints for issuance of visa.


Persons holding passports other than Lebanese passports are expected to obtain visas for India from Indian Missions in the country which has issued them the passport. However, if, for some reason, this has not been possible, we can assist in obtaining a visa in consultation with the concerned Indian Mission provided such person is resident of Lebanon for more than two years, and a copy of Lebanese Resident Permit is attached with his visa application. Visas in such cases are usually processed in five working days.

 

US Passport holders are required to pay fee of L.L. 2, 65,000/- towards the fee for Tourist and Business Visa up to 01 year/ single or Multiple Entry.

 

In order to apply for Indian Visa, minimum validity of the passport should be 6 months.


The following documents are required for grant of tourist visa (i) duly filled in application form, (ii) one photograph, (iii) a copy of return air ticket, (iv) a copy of the hotel booking/place of stay in India.
