Will I be able to travel to India?
If you intend to be traveling to India in the coming days or weeks, but you have not applied for an eVisa yet, we recommend you contact your nearest Indian Embassy. If you are in Canada, contact the High Commission of India in Ottawa for further instructions.
In the press conference above, Indian spokesperson Arindam Bagchi confirms that all previously issued visas will remain valid for upcoming trips to India. If you currently hold a valid Indian eVisa, please be advised that the eVisa is valid for 30 days from its issue date (unless you hold a 1-year eVisa), so make sure to enter India before the end of the 30-day validity.
