As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, here is some general information about Indian visa requirements for Iranian citizens. Please note that visa requirements and application procedures can change, so it’s important to verify the most up-to-date information on the official website of the Embassy of India in Iran or the Indian Ministry of External Affairs website before applying for a visa:
- Visa Types: India offers various types of visas, including tourist visas, business visas, employment visas, student visas, and more. Iranian citizens should apply for the specific type of visa that matches the purpose of their visit to India.
- Visa Application Procedure: Iranian citizens can apply for an Indian visa through the Indian Visa Application Center (IVAC) in Iran. The application process typically involves filling out the visa application form online, uploading the required documents, scheduling an appointment, and visiting the IVAC to complete the biometric process and submit documents.
- Required Documents: The documents required for an Indian visa may vary depending on the type of visa you are applying for. Commonly required documents include a valid passport with at least six months of validity, a completed visa application form, passport-sized photographs, proof of travel arrangements, proof of sufficient funds for your stay, and any additional documents relevant to your visa category.
- Biometrics: As part of the visa application process, Iranian citizens may be required to provide biometric data, including fingerprints and photographs, at the IVAC.
