Who can make use of the urgent procedure?
The urgent procedure consists of a faster check of the application form information and the documents that need to be submitted. This brings down the average delivery time of 7 days for a standard application, to a mere 24 hours.

What does an urgent India visa cost?
For urgent Indian visa application, an additional fee of £17.50 is charged. This fee is added to the normal visa cost of £59.95 per person. The cost can be paid swiftly and online by Visa credit card, MasterCard, American Express, or using Google Pay, Apple Pay or PayPal.
What is the difference between a normal and an urgent application?
Firstly, all applications for the Indian visa (urgent or not) are checked manually for frequently made mistakes by one of e-Visa.co.uk's visa specialists. This way, for instance, the provided digital passport photo and passport copy are checked to make sure these meet the requirements. All of the passport information is also checked for accuracy on the basis of this copy. If any errors or mistakes are detected, these are corrected immediately. When there is doubt about the form information or uploaded documents, you will be contacted to verify this information. This is done both by e-mail and either by phone or SMS text message.
With standard applications, this check is carried out within a few days. The procedure for an urgent application means checking of your document information takes place as soon as the passport photo and passport copy have been uploaded. Even outside of office hours, on weekends, or on holidays.
As soon as the visa specialist can conclude the application form was filled in correctly, and that all of the documentation provided is in order, the application is forwarded to an employee of the immigration service (in India). From this moment on, no influence can be exercised to expedite the processing speed.
Is the delivery time guaranteed?
Urgent delivery, on average, takes place within 24 hours from the moment that the form was completed, payment has been made, and the passport photo and (separate) passport copy have been provided. The immigration service, however, provides no guarantees on the delivery time. In rare cases it can occur that even an Indian visa application with urgent delivery suffers a delay. This is the case, for example, if the application form lists a location for the first overnight stay following arrival, that is known by the immigration service to be problematic for travellers who have stayed there previously not following certain (visa-related) rules.
