Advisory regarding correct website for e-Tourist Visa

It has been brought to our notice that a number of fake visa websites are being operated on the internet, claiming to provide e-Tourist Visa services to visa applicants desiring to travel to India.  In the recent past, there have been an increasing number of complaints relating to fraud perpetrated by these websites.  In order to mislead applicants, some of these websites have created images and homepage templates mimicking the Government of India websites for e-Tourist Visa applicants. 

It may kindly be noted that only repeat only Indian Government website dealing with e-Tourist visa is www.Indianvisaonline.gov.in.  No other website belongs to the Government of India and therefore should not be relied on for e-Tourist Visa services.  Our home page and page on Consular Services already contain the link to the official page..
