Did you know that Denmark and Poland citizens have some of the most difficult Indian visas to obtain? However, if you’re determined to make the trip, there are options available to help you achieve your goal. In this article, we’ll discuss some of those options as well as give you an overview of what you need to know when it comes to applying for an Indian visa as a Denmark or Poland citizen.
Applying for the visa
India is not part of any major travel agreement such as visa-free access to other nations for its citizens. As such, you will need to obtain a valid visa before traveling to India. To apply for an Indian visa from your home country, contact your nearest Indian embassy or consulate and request information on how to proceed. The website visasindia.gov.in can also be of help with your visa application process. First-time applicants must submit biometric data upon application while subsequent applications only require proof of identity documents (such as birth certificates, passports, and national IDs). If you’re between 14 and 70 years old, you must submit at least one photo when applying at VFS Global (Visa Facilitation Services) Visa Application Centres found in 15 different countries around the world.

Fees involved in applying for the visa
The fee which has to be paid for acquiring an Indian visa is non-refundable and it can only be processed once all required documents are submitted by you. The fees involved in applying for an Indian visa can vary from person to person depending on their nationality and the reason behind their application. So, it is always better to know about your exact fees before submitting your application forms. Fees are also dependent upon the travel duration of your journey in India. If you plan to stay in India for more than three months then there will be additional charges which may vary from person to person based on their different needs and the type of accommodation they wish to take in India during their visit.
Documents required to apply for the visa
India offers visas on arrival for many countries. Check out to see which documents are required by Indian immigration. The Indian visa requirements change from time to time and you should check with your nearest Indian Embassy or Consulate regarding what is needed at that time. Remember it may not be necessary to apply in person as your application can be submitted via mail if permitted. You will have to take along the originals of all these documents and they must be valid. Photocopies of relevant pages of the passport, which have a minimum validity of six months beyond date of return, are required. Indian Visa for Poland Citizens
When will you get your passport back?
Indian visas are notoriously slow to process and many travelers end up waiting weeks—even months—for their passports to come back. Don’t take chances with travel plans; when you apply for your Indian visa, give yourself plenty of time before your departure date. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
What are your chances of getting it?
You can get additional pages added to your passport if you find yourself running low. This process varies depending on which country passport you have and where in that country you are when you apply. You can either visit your local Indian embassy or consulate or use any of several passport expediting services (many of them offer same-day service). If you plan to travel outside of India within 3 months, it’s highly recommended that you visit your local embassy/consulate because it may take longer than 3 months to get your new Indian visa from a third party. The visa fees also vary depending on which entity is processing your application. In most cases, applicants need at least 4-6 weeks to process their applications in addition to arrival time in India.
What if I don’t have enough pages left in my passport?
If you are from Denmark or Poland and find that your passport is almost full, you can contact your embassy to request additional pages. The number of extra pages will depend on how many blank pages remain in your passport. For example, if there are only three blank pages remaining, then it would cost about $50 (USD) to add more pages. If you have less than six months left before expiry, you may want to apply for a new passport instead.
Do I need to start over again once I get my passport back?
No, you can continue to use your old passport while your new one is being processed. The process typically takes anywhere from 3-6 weeks. You’ll then receive it in a sealed envelope and must sign it to verify that it hasn’t been damaged. If you need proof of visa entry into India, you can apply for an Entry Clearance Certificate at any Indian Embassy or Consulate before traveling to India.
