22 November 2021

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office officials have raised our concern with the Government of India (GoI) about its e-visa services suspension for British nationals. It is for the GoI to determine the types and validity of the visas, and services it offers. However, we will continue to work closely with the GoI on this issue and update the India Travel Advice with the latest information on any changes to India's visa rules.
