Good news for frequent travellers to India! India has now changed its e-visa to one-year validity with multiple entries, but the fee of USD82 remains the same. Previously the e-visa was valid 120 days for double entry.

The over the counter six-months tourist visa costing USD40 has been scrapped and replaced with two categories of tourist visa – one year (multiple entries) for USD100 and five years (multiple entires) for USD200. The over the counter visas must be applied in person as biometric (fingerprint) is required for application.
