Government of India has introduced the Electronic Tourist
Visas (ETV) to facilitate travel to India by citizens of many friendly
countries. Both Mozambique and Swaziland are among the countries whose
citizens are eligible to travel to India on an ETV. The process of
obtaining an ETV is simple, and you do not need to visit the Indian High
Commission at all for this. You can complete the process from the comfort
of your home, or with the assistance of a travel agent. You will receive the
visa by email within a few days, and you can carry a print-out with you when
The ETV can be used if you want to travel to India for
recreation , sightseeing , casual visit to meet friends or relatives, short
duration medical treatment or casual business visit. Your passport should
have at least 6 months validity from the date you arrive in India, and it must
contain at least two blank pages for affixing the immigration stamps at the
airport. You should also have a return ticket, and enough funds to
support your intended duration of stay in India.
The High Commission of India strongly recommends nationals
of Mozambique and Swaziland to make use of the ETV facility, as long as they
meet the above conditions. In this connection, it is important to note
that the correct website for applying for an Indian ETV is https://indianvisaonline.gov.in.
There are a number of fraud/fake websites on the internet, which promise to
facilitate Indian ETV for travelers. Applicants are strongly advised to
avoid using any other website for applying for the ETV. Please only use
the website mentioned above.
case you wish to apply for an ETV and have any doubt about the procedure,
please contact the High Commission on email@example.com.
