Prepare your eVisa application right now

E-Tourist visas are available online for citizens of the Republic of Korea who are planning a tourist journey to India and do not intend to remain for more than sixty days. Visitors from Korea need to apply for their India tourist visas at least four days before they want to leave the country.

Business travelers from Korea needing to enter India must apply for a business visa. Like other nationalities, Korean individuals need special medical access to enter India for any medical treatment, including surgery.

Immigration officials in India need to know the motivations of people from other nations seeking entry. Everyone, including sightseers, business people, and those in need of medical care, is welcome in any country, but monitoring who comes in and why is essential. This data is critical for the future development of India’s infrastructure and people’s economic security.
