Applying for an Indian visa for Jersey citizens

How to apply

The process to apply for an India visa is the same for Jersey and mainland UK. The decision to grant a visa sits with the Government of India.

VFS Global is the official partner appointed by the Indian High Commission in London to provide  consular, passport and visa application services. 

Allow as much time as you can for your application and do not apply through a third-party supplier.

You can apply for a visa on VFS Global. The application process is detailed on their website and consists of 7 steps:

  1. identify your visa type and check if you’re eligible to apply
  2. prepare your application by completing the form on the Government of India website. You’ll need to print this form and bring it to your visa appointment. On the form, make sure you select the following options which help Jersey applicants:
    • for Indian Mission/Office select UK-London
    • for relevant items, select United Kingdom or British (not Jersey)
    • for Citizenship/ID select UK
