Visa Services:

  • Please do not finalise your travel arrangements to India before ascertaining the visa requirements. All foreign nationals, including children, require a visa to enter India.
  • Visa fee  is non-refundable and subject to change without notice.
  • The High Commission of India reserves the right on granting and deciding type/duration of visa irrespective of the fees tendered at the time of making application.
  • Visas can be applied for in person at the High Commission of India in Yaounde. Visa applicants from foreign nationals other than Cameroon or from people of Pakistani, Bangladesh and Sri Lankan origin may have to wait for requisite visa clearance from the Indian Missions in their respective countries. Pakistani and Bangladesh nationals have to apply in special visa application forms.
  • Visitors to restricted/protected areas need special permits and for this purpose an additional form has to be completed. Please contact the High Commission of India, Yaounde.  If you wish to ascertain whether any of the places you intend to visit fall in the category of restricted/protected areas.
  • Specific visas are granted for a variety of purposes. The principal types of visas issued are mentioned below. Please contact the High Commission of India for further details if you are visiting India for purposes other than tourism, such as journalism, conferences, yoga, voluntary work, mountaineering or other expeditions. The visa application form is, however, the same. Separate forms are available for Pakistani and Bangladeshi Nationals.
