The new Indian e-visa application process will take only 5-6 working days for approval and costs 39 pounds (approx. US $60) plus a small admin charge, along with travellers correct documents and photograph. This means only within a month applicants will be able to enter India, soon after visa’s issue date and stay for up to one month. Although visa cannot be extended more than a month, but can be used twice every 12 months.
