An Entry Visa to India is granted to Persons of Indian Origin and also to those who are dependant family members of Employment Visa or or Research Visa holders. An India Entry Visa can also be extended later by the Foreigners Regional Registration Officer in India on a yearly basis up to a maximum period of 5 years.

Eligibility for applying for entry visa:

2. Applicant is a spouse or child of a person of Indian origin.
3. Applicant is a spouse or dependent family member of a foreign national coming to India on long term visa such as Employment, Business, Research or Student. In such cases, the visa duration granted is co-terminus with the period of the principal visa holder. The principal visa holder's visa must be issued before the spouse and dependent family members can apply for their Entry Visa to India.
4. Applicant's purpose of visit to India does not match any other type of visa. In this the purpose of visit should be clearly explained.
