Notice on fake e-Visa websites
It has been brought to the notice of the Government of India that a number of fake visa websites are operating on the internet, claiming to provide Indian e-Visa services to visa applicants desiring to travel to India. In recent months, there has been an increasing number of complaints relating to frauds perpetrated by these websites. Such fake websites misguide foreign nationals and also in some cases dupe them of their money. In order to mislead applicants, some of these websites have created images and home page templates mimicking the Government of India websites for e-Visa applicants. The list of some of these fake websites is as follows:
All the e-Visa applicants are hereby informed that the correct website for applying Indian e-Visa is https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/evisa/tvoa.html. It is further advised not to deal with other fake websites that do not belong to the Government of India and therefore should not be relied on for e-Visa services. Kindly note e-Visa is an electronic visa in which the entire process is conducted online without any intermediary.
