I spoke to an English yesterday, who has just returned from Lanka with a 6 month Tourist visa. I don't know if this is policy or if he just got lucky.

My story

This thread helped me so much in my problematic situation, but yet since
I know the indian gov. Change thier rules once in a while, i gotta tell you my
Story and pray for a happy answer.
So my story goes like this:

Im from israel, with an israeli passport. Im traveling india now for a few months already and my visa expires in 29th of February.
At 24th of January i leave to sri Lanka for probably a little more than a month and then i want to head back to India.
So my question is, is it possible to make a new vise to india from sri lanka only a few days after my last visa to india expired?

Thank you in advance!
Idan.

Met 2 other people in Goa this season, who got 6 months tourist visas in Colombo, with no problems.

Hello,

Has anybody had any luck running two consecutive Indian tourist visas together yet? I have to leave India on the 1st of March but would like to re-enter as soon as possible. Please share any experiences! Thanks

This cannot be done and does not happen,

When you apply for your new visa, assuming it is granted, it will cancel the existing one. Usually the existing one is stamped with "cancelled without prejudice" but not always.

If you think about it, there would be no reason to have two valid tourist visas in your passport, although some time back someone on this forum said they had two different types of visa valid at the same time and I recall this was judged to be ok and normall.

I think they might mean back to back visas.

Any news of recent experience? The VFS office is of course completely useless with information.

Repeat Indian Tourist Visa from Sri Lanka 2014

Hi All,

I realise this question has been asked a lot but it appears the laws have changed since the posts I can see on the subject.

This is my first trip to India and my 6 month Tourist Visa is up on May 27th 2014. I am in the process of completing Pranic Healing courses in Bangalore. The next courses I want to do are in June and July.

I believe the cheapest and best way would be to go from Chennai to Columbo, Sri Lanka. I believe the 2 month re-entry has been abolished.

1. Does this mean I can fly out on the 27th May 2014? Or before the 27th May to give myself more leeway?

2. Update my visa within a week from leaving, (I only need a 3 month)?

3. Fly back to Chennai after a week with an updated visa trouble free?

I realise things are in the middle of being changed again so you can get a visa on arrival but no timelines have been set that I can see and I really need some help for these particular dates.

Does anyone have some up to date experience and may be able to help me?

Thanks in Advance

Richie
