Visa Info

A Business Visa is given for doing business in India such as making sales or establishing contacts on behalf of a company outside India. These visas may be valid for one year or more with multiple entries. However, the period of stay in India (for each visit) under this category is limited to six months only. Business visas valid for ten years with multiple entries may be available to foreign businessmen who have set up or intend to set up joint ventures in India.

Spouse and dependent family members accompanying the applicant must apply for an Entry visa (NOT Tourist visa), co-terminus with the period of the principal visa holder. The Business Visa applicant must receive the visa prior to applying for accompanying the spouse and dependent family members. Please note the visa is valid beginning on the day it is issued. So, a one-year visa issued on January 1 would be valid until December 31.
