All people traveling will need a valid Passport and VISA. Please apply for your Passport and Visa at least two months prior to your trip. Tickets will not be booked until you have received both.

You will need a certified copy of your birth certificate for both the Passport and VISA applications.

US Citizen Passport Application

You can apply online for a passport at the US Department of State website. This is the correct site for US Citizens to obtain a passport whether renewing or for the first time. The passport forms on the Embassy of India web site are only for India Citizens.

VISA Application

You may apply for an E-Tourist Visa to India here: https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/evisa/tvoa.html. You must apply at least 4 days before your date of arrival. We encourage you to apply for a 1 year or 5 year Visa. It is slightly more expensive than the 30 day Visa, but worth it, especially if you plan to travel again. Also, the 30 day Visa is valid for 30 days from the date you APPLY not from your arrival date. We recommend you book the tickets only after the Visa is granted. Though chances are small that you will be rejected, if you are, you can’t travel and may forfeit the full price of your plane ticket (airline policy, not ours).

You will need the following two digital items for your Visa application:

A digital photo of you. You can use a photo you have taken yourself, though a passport photo taken at your local photo processor is more likely to be accepted as meeting these requirements.
