Visa Information

Clearances from Ministries/Departments:

1. Necessary clearances from Ministry of External Affairs, Department of Atomic Energy and Ministry of Home Affairs

2. Additional instructions for participants from Taiwan


We request all the foreign participants to fill up the required information on the Registration page.

International participants should apply for either a business or a conference visa at the appropriate Indian consulate/embassy. We emphasize that "e-tourist", "e-business" or "entry" visas are not applicable.

Our experience is that the processing times for business visas are significantly shorter than for conference visas, and we hence typically advise participants to apply for a business visa. However, this may depend on the country in which the visa application is being filed. We hence also advise participants to inquire with VFS Global or the local Indian consulate/embassy on the procedures for a business and a conference visa, before deciding.

Finally, the invitation letter is different for the two types of visa, so be sure to specify the type of visa for which you will be applying, when requesting the invitation letter.
