A visa is a passport that allows you to visit another country. If you want to visit India, you’ll need an Indian visa first. If you live in China or Brazil, you can apply for an Indian visa in your country. This guide will teach you how to apply for an Indian visa and the documents that are needed to apply for this type of visa.
What are the requirements?
For those citizens of Brazil who want an Indian visa, you’ll need to first obtain a Permanent Account Number (PAN) card. You will then be required to submit your application along with a letter from your employer stating that you are on a work contract in India. Once you receive your PAN card and letter from your employer, you can apply for an Indian visa by submitting all required documents at any of India’s Indian consulate or embassy offices. For those Chinese citizens wanting an Indian visa, it will first be important to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA). Then, once approved, simply arrive at one of India’s immigration check-points with your passport and application receipt number.
Where do I start with my application?
The most common question Indian nationals living in Brazil ask is, where do I start my Indian visa application? This can be confusing for those who are unfamiliar with Brazilian law. Fortunately, it’s pretty simple. Before starting any type of visa application process you need to understand a few key concepts: First of all, every foreigner who wishes to visit India must obtain a tourist visa first. Tourist visas are single-entry visas that allow foreigners up to three months in India at a time with multiple entries. Those wishing to remain longer than 3 months must apply for either an employment or student visa at their nearest Indian Embassy before arriving in India or they will not be allowed into the country.

Do I need a medical exam?
Indian visas require proof of a negative HIV test, while Brazilian citizens must provide a medical certificate. If you’re traveling within 6 months of getting an Indian visa or applying at least 4 weeks in advance, then no – no further medical examination is required. However, if you’re traveling outside that time frame, or applying more than 8 weeks in advance (Indian visas) or 16 weeks in advance (Brazilian citizens), then you will need to provide proof of a yellow fever vaccination and undergo an online medical assessment. If your country participates in ESTA (most do), then you can make all arrangements online. Otherwise, see your doctor for a negative HIV test before you go. Indian Visa for Chinese Citizens
When will I know if my visa has been granted?
You will receive an e-mail from us once your visa application has been processed. This normally takes 24 hours (working days). Once we have issued you your visa, you will be given a visa number by email as well as instructions on how to use it to enter India through immigration. Please keep your emails safe! Do not attach them to emails sent elsewhere. Alternatively, they can be printed off and kept in a safe place.
What are the documents required?
Do you want a tourist visa, business visa, or work permit? Different documents are required. For a tourist visa, you need your passport, two photos, and proof of travel (for example an airline ticket). For a business visa, you need your passport, two photos, a letter from your employer stating why you’re traveling (what kind of business are you going there for), what will happen while you’re there (how long will it take) as well as how much money they pay per month. You also need proof that he/she is paying social security tax in China or in India: typically a payroll certificate from his/her company showing all staff members with their wages.
Timeframe, what can I expect?
Travel time will take between 2-3 days depending on how quickly you can get your documents together. Once you receive your visa, it is valid for 90 days, which means that once you arrive in India you have three months to use it. You do not need a tourist visa if you are planning on staying less than 30 days in India. If your stay is longer than that, contact an immigration agent before leaving home.
