After several attempts, I was able to speak with someone at the embassy earlier this week. I was told they currently have only tourist visa for 30 days only. Can't be extended. We can apply for it after Nov 15. Things may change in the next couple of months, but for now it's the only option.

I guess it would. Every consulate website has details on what is needed. Getting a certificate from someone in india shouldn’t be a big challenge.

My thought is to apply for the regular eVisa and then just get an extension in india for my son if I need it. I don’t think that should be an issue … what do you folks think?

Hey Op, I typically get 10 year multiple entry visa but it expired last year, and the Indian Embassy site has been least informative (as usual) on how to get that type of visa. 1. Is there no option for multiple entry 10 year or 5 year visa? If so that is a better option 2. You should be able to call the embassy with this question. I also don’t think it would be an issue though, but better to check and be safe

I got the business e-visa valid for 365 days
