The past few days have been quite frustrating trying to figure out how to apply for a visa for my upcoming trip to India. Initially I thought I would need to apply for a regular tourist visa which is a more complicated process then the e-visa. The e-visa is perfect for a yoga teacher training program because the time frame for visitation has increased to 60 days, whereas in the past it was only 30 days. Also you can apply for the visa several weeks in advance of your trip and select your intended travel date. The visa will be valid starting when you first arrive in India and allows for 2 entries within the 60 day validity period.
Here is what you will need for the e-VISA
1) Valid Passport that has at least 6 months remaining on it beyond your arrival date. Passport should also have a minimum of 2 empty pages.
