A conference visa is available to those that would like to visit India for international conferences, or on certain subjects, may be issued to delegates provided they have an invitation to a conference/seminar/workshop being organized in India by a Ministry or Department of the Government of India, State Governments, Public Sector Undertakings, central Educational Institutions, Public Funded University or an organization owned and controlled by the Government of India or Statement Government, UN or its specialized agencies and reputed NGOs.
If the conference/seminar/workshop is being organized in India by private companies, you should apply for the shortest duration Business Visa available. If approved, a three month single entry Business visa will be granted.
Duration and Validity
The visa duration starts on the day of issuance, and not on the day of entry into India. The Conference Visa is a 3-month single entry visa.
