Re: Indian research visas

Hi Kelsey,

This is Kate from CLS. I had to apply for a 9-month visa while in London in 2014. I was leaving at the end of March and submitted everything January 2nd. I later found out that this was not considered an urgent application so it ended up on the bottom of the pile for a month. I had to follow up with the embassy. There was a fair amount of scrambling around and calling on my part but I think, all told, giving yourself a month should be a safe time frame. Hope this helps,


Indian research visas

Dear colleagues,

Does anyone have recent experience as a US citizen applying for an Indian research visa while in the UK? Or abroad in general? If so, how long did it take from when you submitted your application to when your visa was issued?
