Visa Information

Embassy of India, Doha, grants visas for those intending to visit India for tourist, business and other purposes in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Government of India. Those intending to visit India can access the Government of India website https://indianvisaonline.gov.in to fill up the application forms (not the e-Tourist Visa form, as this facility is currently not available to Qatari Nationals) online. Applicants may kindly fill in all details in the application form and also upload their recent photographs. A print out of the filled-in application form, duly signed by the applicant, with two copies of the uploaded photograph is required to be submitted in person along with requisite fee , photocopy of ID card / Iqama and passport-valid for at least six months at the Embassy of India, Doha  between 0915 hrs to 1230 hrs on all working days. (i.e. Sunday to Thursday).

 

Visas for Qatari Nationals and non–Qatari Nationals having valid residence permit would normally be issued on the same day. It may take at least 3 / 4 working days in cases of non-Qatari Nationals who do not hold a valid residence permit for Qatar. For Pakistan Nationals, applicants of Pakistani Origin and a few other categories of non-Qataris the processing time is much longer- the Embassy’s Consular Section would guide the concerned applicants in this regard. The period of validity of the visa begins from the date of issue of visa. The Embassy reserves the right to refuse visa without assigning any reasons. 

 

Note: The applicants should ensure that they have a passport, valid for a minimum period of 6 months, before applying online for Visa Services.
