90,000 e-Tourist Visas were issued within the scheme’s first year in 2015, thanks to the India Tourism Office London. The e-Visa for India has been sub-divided into three categories: e-Tourist Visa, e-Business Visa and e-Medical Visa. Visitors must present the authorisation to immigration officials on arrival.
