Indian visa

January 21st, 2006

I received my business visa to India yesterday night. Normally, this is a simple procedure: You present a few documents like an invitation letter from an Indian company, an application form and two photographs and pay the fee at the counter. You submit your passport in the morning, pick it up in the afternoon and off you go.

Of course things are not that easy if you’re a Hungarian national. Altough when I called them on the phone they told me the procedure would be the same for me, upon arrival they announced they would need one week to check with the Hungarian consulate. Oh and I would only get a single entry visa since the invitation letter didn’t say I have to travel multiple times (I do).

This was bad news because I submitted my passport this monday and intended to fly on sunday. Upon hearing this, the consulate clerk told me I could check back this friday and so I did. I had to sit around for two hours but finally I got the visa at around 6:30 in the evening, so tomorrow’s off to Bangalore!
