Quick question, do you need to upload photos as well as attach them, or can you just attach them to the application form that you send in?

I filled mine on line and took it to the Visa office in London - Goswell Road, Barbican. Fairly painless procedure and got called at my allotted time. Only problem is the two trips i.e. I have to pick it up in a few days time. Oh - and they've got a photo machine there if you've trouble getting the right sized photos.

I have to say I miss the 'bun fights' at the Indian High Commission when I used to get my Visa. Those were the days, a true welcome to India experience!

I am doing Mumbai test flying in from Perth and had no problem getting a double entry visa to go back to Goa one week later after flying back to London for a week. Perhaps they look on us convicts with higher esteem now !!!!

Visa from Oz allows 1 entry into india during visa period. I applied on line and added additional entry requirement on form (back to Goa 1 week after Mumbai test) and received my passport back with 4 days stamped with double entry for period mentioned

You generally get a 'Multiple Entry' Visa as standard but you still need to leave two months between leaving and re-entering India. I'd double-check with your travel agent before you travel if I was you.

See you in Mumbai!

Can anyone help please. I'm doing my online application which I've printed and ready to post to the Uxbridge centre. But it keeps mentioning making an appointment. With a postal application do I still need an appointment? I'd interpreted it that I'm paying for my application to be done fully by post and that my passport will be returned by post. Do I still need an appointment?

I bet this is a really silly question so sorry but this constant mention of 'making an appointment' is making me doubt myself

Cheers, Matt

No you don't need to make an appointment, you need to send it in by post with a SAE special delivery for them to send it back. Or pay extra to get them to send it back.
