Embassy of India

Advisory on visas:

The Embassy of India and our Consulates have been receiving several queries from Chinese citizens as well as other foreign nationals, who are in China or had visited China in the last 2 weeks, as to whether they can use their valid single/multiple entry visas to travel to India. In this regard, it is clarified that all existing Indian (Paper and E-Visa) visas are no longer valid. Intending visitors to India should contact the Indian Embassy in Beijing (visa2.beijing@mea.gov.in; hotline numbers 18612083629 and18610952903) or the Consulates in Shanghai (Ccons.shanghai@mea.gov.in) and Guangzhou (Visa.guangzhou@mea.gov.in) to apply afresh for an Indian visa, who shall then guide them regarding the next steps to be taken for processing their requests. Indian Visa Application Centres (www.blsindia-china.com) in these cities may also be contacted in this regard.

All those who are already in India (with regular or e-visa) and had traveled from China after January 15, 2020 are requested to contact the hotline of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare of Government of India (+91-11-23978046 and email: ncov2019@gmail.com).
