    Hey guys. My SO is Canadian and we're wondering if a visa is required to visit India. I have an American passport and from what I understand, I need to get a visa.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Leahcim132. Yes all Canadian citizens require a Visa to go to India. They call them E-visas, because everything is done online. The Canadian citizen can go online and apply for a tourist visa. It takes 3 to 12 business days to process. They give you 30 days tops to visit the country. The application is around US$50 and you need to pay an additional US$60 to get the citizen's passport stamped at the airport. Hope this helps.

    You are correct! Here's a breakdown of visa requirements for your trip to India:

    You (American Citizen): Yes, you will need a visa to visit India. U.S. citizens cannot extend tourist visas while in India, so you will need to apply for a new visa before your current one expires.

    Your SO (Canadian Citizen): Canada is one of the countries on India's e-Visa program list. This means your SO can apply for an electronic visa online before your trip. Here's the official website for the Indian e-Visa program: [https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/](https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/)
