Secret of getting India Visa in Just One Day

My friend asked me how to get India visa in one day only. Yes, believe it or not: One day visa application process.

Normally, you need 4 days to a week for this process. The application is made using two options available: online or offline.

If you have a credit card and too lazy to move your ass (or living outside of Jakarta), it’s better to apply it online. Just access this link, fill the form, and you will receive E-visa in a week. No need to come to embassy for interview session (finger print scanning actually..).

If you need faster processing time, offline process is the answer. Just visit Indian Embassy in Kuningan area in Jakarta, near of Singapore and Nederland embassy.
