All travellers note - you must now go to an independant 'Visa Center" to apply for a visa for India. The Kuala Lumpur embassy no longer issues them directly.
Address is: GRANDLOTUS INDIA VISA CENTRE SDN. BHD.
G-01,STRAITS TRADING BUILDING, NO.2,LEBUH PASAR BESAR,
50050 KUALA LUMPUR. TEL: 03-26922692
Details at www.indiavisa.com.my
This doesn't seem to be general knowledge in KL.

would you happen to know how long it takes to get a tourist visa to India from KL?

EDIT: Sorry I checked the link - 4-5days

Thanks for the heads up.

visa to India in KL

Actually we have been waiting for 6 working days now and still don't have 'approval'. The process involves showing up at the visa center, filling in the application forms, paying 48MYR and then wait for approval. Once approval is recieved (which is posted on their website www.indiavisa.com.my) you have to take your passport into the visa center before 11:00 am to get the visa stamp entered. This costs another 152MYR. Passports recieved before 11 can then be picked up betweeen 1700 and 17230 of the same day. We are going to varify this time as we have also seen 1630 as the pickup time. They won't give you any idea of how long it will take and tell you not to book flights until you get approval. Our plans in India have had to be reorganized because of all this ... so take note. Good luck and 'Happy Trails'.

Post KL tourist Visa applications

The previous post is still correct as of even date. I am on working day 6 and still waiting for clearance (application submitted via KL). Point to note:- on initial application you will need 2 recent passport photos and be able to nominate and intended destination address in India, as I haven't organised my accommodation, I nominated The Hilton Hotel, Mumabai (the first hotel that sprung to mind)and was then required to furnish the address and telephone number for that hotel. I explained to the assistant that I would not be booking any accommodation until I was in receipt of visa, the advice given was that everyone must nominate an intended address for the application to be processed and not to worry if that address should change???? I was unable to receive a plausible reason for this. Hope this helps

Australian getting Indian Visa in KL

So Nick Boyd, just to clarify, is it possible for an Australian national to obtain a tourist visa to India while in Malaysia? I am going to India and have left it to late to get one in Australia, but I am spending a month in KL first. Can I obtain visa while I'm there? I have been trying to get this information and your post was the only thing I could find online that indicated this.

re:

I just saw on the Indian High Commission website that you have to be resident in Malaysia to get a visa. Are you resident there? I am working there for one month on an internship. Do you think that would be enough?

Yes, old visa info is like old food. It may make you nauseas. KL had gone to a residents only mode. However, I had one unconfirmed report that someone very persuasive and with a strong printed itinerary had wangled an interview and obtained a nice fat 6 month tourist visa there..

Im also hearing they want you to be resident of Malaysia to get a tourist visa for India, a friend of mine, a non Malaysian resident, insisted that he should be allowed to try, they told him if not given he would lose his money, he got a 6 month tourist visa no problem.
Savages, the bloody lot of them
