Visa Guidance

Every delegate visiting from a foreign country needs a visa to visit India.

After you finalize your dates of training, you can apply for a Entry visa at your local Indian High Commission.

Entry visa is perfect for all short term courses.

We also recommend issuing a request to the Indian Visa with validity of few days/week after your IT training course is scheduled to get over, so that you have an option of upgrading to more courses, if required, during your stay in India.

Specific Visas are granted for a variety of purposes. Listed below in a tabular form are the types of visa.
