German citizens and Online Visa to India

For German passport owners, Indian eVisa is available in three types. Based on your purpose (tourism, recreation, sightseeing, casual visit to meet friends or relatives, short duration medical treatment or casual business visit) and duration of your trip in India, choose the suitable type:

1. Indian e-Tourist Visa – multiple entries – 180 days/entry

2. Indian e-Business Visa – multiple entries – 180 days/entry

3. Indian e-Medical Visa – triple entry – 60 days/3 entries*

*The staying period of 60 days counts from the date of the first arrival in India. Within this period of 60 days, Indian e-Medical Visa holders can enter India maximum 3 times.


It is really important to get the right visa for travel and that it’s valid for the purpose and duration of the trip. So make sure you meet entry requirements.
