Please note that ALL foreign nationals, including American and EU passport holders, must hold a valid visa in order to travel to India. Visas must be applied for in advance at an Indian embassy or consulate. See here for more details.
Nationals of certain countries may be eligible for e-tourist visa. Check this website for more details.
While applying for a Visa, you may need to attach with your visa application an official invitation letter from the conference organisers. If you need such an invitation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or Koushik.email@example.com with the following information:
- Your name
- Title of accepted paper
- Your nationality and passport number
Please check with your nearest Indian consulate/embassy for information that may be specific to your country of residence. The visa application process should be quite straightforward in most cases. However, we strongly urge you to please apply for your visa at least six weeks in advance of your travel dates.
