India has eased rules and streamlined the visa process to allow tourists from the US (and 42 other countries) to obtain a tourist visa to India upon arrival. To obtain this new electronic visa (valid for 30 days) applicants should file an online application at lease 4 days in advance of their travel date at the Indian government's Tourist Visa on Arrival website. Applicants will need to upload a photo and the page of their U.S. passport with relevant details (name, date of birth, etc.), and pay $60 by debit or credit card plus handling fees. Applicants will then receive an email authorizing travel in India. Print a copy of this to take with you and present it with your passport when you arrive. Your passport must be valid for at least six months.
