There are times when an emergency may occur that stops you from visiting India. What do you do then? Do you give up on your thoughts of visiting this country? Emergency visa is not a new concept for India, but it has only been implemented in a few countries. This visa policy was started to facilitate people or residents of other countries to enter India. As there are numerous categories of Visas available when it comes to travel, the criteria for Emergency Visa application might differ from category to category.

What is an Emergency Visa?

  • An emergency visa is issued to those who genuinely have emergency-related matters in India such as a death in a family, serious illness of an immediate family member or any other urgent issue.

How long is the validity of the emergency visas being issued?

  • All emergency visas are processed under emergency validity periods, which vary from visa to visa category. These periods have been reduced instead of the normal time period the visas are issued for.
