How long does it take to get a visa to India?

Can I apply by mail?
You may also submit your application by mail but this will take 3 days to process and 2 weeks or more to be mailed back to you. You may send a self-addressed pre-paid return envelope with the application instead of paying the mailing charges.
When you make your visa application, remember that personal checks and credit cards are not accepted. Payment can be made with money order/certified check/cashier's check drawn in favor of Embassy of India/Consulate General of India.
