10 Year Tourist Visa to India

Recommended Posts

I just got a 10 year tourist visa to India valid until 2029, multiple entry. No financial requirements. No reporting within 180 days. But I can only stay for 180 days, on each entry.  I hear India is even cheaper than Thailand.

 

Anyone have any recommendation on where to stay, with cheap food and accommodation, safe, beach, friendly women?

My 10 tourist Indian Tourist Visa expired a couple of months ago.  

I went X 4 and decided that was enough for me.  I believe the 10 visa is not available for everyone. 

I'm from the USA and seem to remember that the India government gave US citizens the 10 years

in the hopes that the US would reciprocate and  give more work visas to Indian tech people.  

 

If you're expecting anything like Thailand you may be disappointed IMO.  Goa is easy for the 1st timer.

Mumbai is insane.  Love the food.

Goa is big place. Which beach or town do you recommend for a first timer?

Anjuna beach area, curlys beach house always has good goa and techno parties

 

I went to Mumbai, Delhi and Goa/Anjuna and Goa is really the only thing i can recommend, Mumbai is ok for 2-3 days if you want to experience and extreme culture shock i guess.

I can recommend the Slum Tours if you want to learn a bit: https://www.tripsavvy.com/mumbai-dharavi-slum-tours-4072927

 

But as already said - india is a once done never again experience for me

Do both beaches have friendly ladies?

 

Why only once? Food, people, weather, ladies?

Just to balance the scales slightly I love India but there's no question you have to plan in order to get the best out of your trip.

 

As for recommendation of places to visit it depends on what time of year you are travelling. It makes no sense to head for the Himalayas in the middle of winter and equally taking a beach break during the monsoon.

 

Only US gets 10 year visas. As a Brit I did get a 5 year visa once from Chiang Mai but these days e visas are good for 1 year and multiple entry and sufficient for vast majority of visitors. Brits/US/Canada/Japan get 180 days/entry while others are limited to 90.

I was just thinking myself....why would anybody want a 10 year Visa for India?

I was thinking the same thing - sounds great if you didn't have to be in India... but even having to leave every 180 days does not work that well...

While Thai hoteliers, restaurant owners and tour operators are wondering, if the bureaucracy, ransacking and over-complicating the entire visa process is one of the reason, that tourism of quality tourists is literally dead.

Long-term stayers and retirees are screwed with TM30 forms which some landlords simply refuse to comply with as "too stupid", the 90 days rubbish serves also only the inferiority complex of the official Khon Thai ........

Thailand passed its peak long time ago and is in free fall downhill after the Russians, Chinese, Malays and now the Southasians ....... go figure!
