Visa Information

All foreign nationals entering India will require a valid visa. Delegates are responsible for obtaining their own valid visa before travelling.

Applying for a visa

There are several types of visas available for entry to India. Based on the experience of conference delegates to date, we would suggest either:

  1. An e-business visa. These visas can be applied for online and do not require a lot of supporting documents.
  2. A regular paper conference visa (not electronic conference visa). In this case you will need to visit an Indian consulate or embassy, bringing your completed application form and supporting documents (see below).

Please pay close attention to the details of your application, making sure to provide all required documents and requested information. Different visas have different document requirements so please check online or consult your local Indian Embassy or Consulate before submitting your application.

Please note: Participants from Afganistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Sudan may need to make special arrangements and get further clearance to obtain a visa for entry into India and attendance at the conference. Please make sure you have consulted with the appropriate Embassy or Consulate of India and allow for ample time for your application to be reviewed.

Please contact for further assistance if needed.


When applying for visa, delegates may be required to provide supporting letters:

  1. A conference invitation letter, which can be requested through the conference registration system.
  2. A clearance letter from the Indian Ministry of Health.
  3. A clearance letter from the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.
  4. A clearance letter from the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs.
