Processing Time

The Embassy of India and VFS cannot, in any circumstances, be held responsible for any applications which are not completed on time for your intended date of departure. Kindly note that obtaining a visa is not automatic; your application may be accepted, modified or refused by the Embassy of India and/or its consulate in its full right.

Each application is processed individually by the Embassy of India: as a result processing times may vary between applications that appear to be similar.

Minimum processing times

For Non-Thai nationals at a minimum visa is issued on the 6th working day.

#Some individual cases may require around 6-8 weeks time for processing.

The company VFS has no influence over the processing times of a visa application: these depend essentially on the Embassy of India. We are therefore not in a position to guarantee maximum processing times. We are only able to communicate minimum processing times, provided for information purposes only.

The mission/Consulate makes all possible efforts to process the visa applications within the stipulated timeframe yet this must not be construed as an obligation on the part of Mission/Consulate.
