Which is the best way
I’m finding no the Indian embassy site very unhelpful
If you are doing the e-Visa and having trouble, look for the thread on the India forum that gives you a whole lot of tips about how to do that. Things I would never have thought of (applying on your phone rather than using your laptop to get around security issues caused by using wifi) plus there are a lot of posts that give country specific info. From NZ, I think the visa frpm the embassy was $US250 and the eVisa was $US50.
Go to the goa forum.... idiot's guide at the top of the page.
Not suggesting your an idiot, but most idiots find it explains all. Lol.
Well said Scottish!
