*******************************

All e-Visa applicants are advised to only use the official Government of India website http://indianvisaonline.gov.in  to apply for e-Visa.

The same website is also to be used by applicants who wish to apply for Regular Visas through the Indian Embassy in Belgrade. Applicants should not deal with other websites such as (i) e-touristvisaindia.com, (ii) indianvisaonline.org.in, (iii) e-visaindia.com   that do not belong to the Government of India, and therefore should not be relied upon for Indian e-Visa services. 

Online Visa Application

For applying for visa through the Indian Embassy in Serbia, please choose  the option "Regular Visa Application"
and select Serbia - Belgrade as the Indian Mission on the Online Visa Application Form

After applying online, the applicant must take a printout of the visa application form, and bring it along with all the requisite documents as per guidelines given below.
