Goa Useful Information


Travel to Goa

Everyone needs a visa for India and it must be obtained before you enter the country. Six-month multiple-entry visas (valid from the date of issue) are issued to most nationalities regardless of whether you intend staying that long or are re-entering the country. Visa applications can be made at your nearest embassy or consulate in person or by post. You need to provide a completed visa application form, passport photographs, visa fee and, in some cases, an itinerary and proof of onward travel (such as a flight ticket out of India). Check with your embassy for specific requirements. Many embassies have a website where you can download and print a visa application form and get all the information you need.

Visa fees vary from country to country.
