To apply for an Indian visa, you will need to gather the following documents: your passport with a valid Swedish passport stamp, your plane ticket, a hotel reservation if you are staying in India for more than three days, and proof of financial support if you are travelling with children. You should also bring a letter of invitation from someone in India or from an Indian organisation sponsoring your trip.
