We regularly raise our concerns regarding our exclusion from the list of countries eligible for e-visas with the Government of India (GoI). Most recently, the Foreign Secretary raised this matter with her Indian counterpart on 31 March during her visit to India. It is for the GoI to determine the types and validity of the visas it offers. British nationals can continue to use the GoI's regular/paper visa application services for all visa categories. 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.
