What is an India EBusiness Visa?

The e-Business Visa is intended for individuals traveling to India for business-related purposes, excluding actual employment or commercial activities within the country. This visa is suitable for attending business meetings and conferences or exploring potential business partnerships.

India’s visa regulations are governed by a comprehensive legal framework, with the Foreigners Act of 1946 as the foundational legislation overseeing foreigners’ entry, stay, and departure. This legislation categorizes visa types and sets fundamental prerequisites for their acquisition. The Passport (Entry into India) Rules, 2010 complement these regulations, offering a detailed guide for various visa categories, notably the e-Business Visa, covering eligibility, application processes, validity periods, and limitations. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issues periodic Notifications and Circulars, contributing to the dynamic nature of visa regulations by refining and clarifying aspects such as eligible countries, fee structures, or processing procedures.
