U.S. citizens applying for a visa to India can locate the fees on the Cox & Kings Global Services website. As of 2015, the basic fee for an Indian visa depends on the type and length of duration needed. The final visa fee also includes any special fees and processing fees.
To determine the basic fee for an Indian visa, travelers must first determine the category of visa they need and which documents are required. Examples of Indian visa categories include Tourist, Emergency, Business, Student, Research, Missionary, Conference, Transit and Medical Attendant. Click on the visa category on the Cox & Kings Global Services website to view the basic fee.
In addition to the basic visa fee, as of 2015, US citizens pay a $3 fee to the Indian Community Welfare Fund. If the applicant uses a third-party service, such as Cox & Kings Global Services, a service fee is required. Other fees that may be included are courier fees and biometric enrollment fees. The final fee is displayed once the application is submitted, and payments can typically be made either by check or online. Fees are not refundable, regardless of whether the visa application is withdrawn, notes the Indian government's website.
