Hello -

I crossed over into Nepal at Dhangadhi because my 60-day tourist visa was expiring and it's the closest point back to where I want to travel in India. I am a US citizen so believe I can do another E-visa and head back to India. However, I was informed in Delhi at the Foreigner Regional Registration Office I could do this here at border. This does not seem to be the case unfortunately.

Is there any advice for easiest way to secure a new visa for India without going into Kathmandu? Is this at all possible?

I think I must re-enter India through certain airports or seaports only once visa application is approved??

Any thoughts/advice on my situation greatly appreciated, thanks!

You can enter India via designated airports & seaports.

e-Visa is valid for entry through 25 designated Airports (i.e. Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Bagdogra, Bengaluru, Calicut, Chennai, Chandigarh,Cochin, Coimbatore, Delhi, Gaya, Goa, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mangalore, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Tiruchirapalli, Trivandrum, Varanasi & Vishakhapatnam) and 3 designated seaports (i.e. Cochin, Goa, Mangalore). However, the foreigner can take exit from any of the authorized Immigration Check Posts (ICPs) in India.

You are stuck going to Kathmandu and flying from there, as it is the only international airport in the country.

You could apply for a non e-Visa in Kathmandu, and then use the land border crossing.
