I need to apply for Indian tourist visas for my parents (aged 71 and 65). If we appoint their services, would my parents need to go in person to the Indian Embassy in London?

No - Its all done on line and by post I have used them twice and they were brilliant. My passport was gone less than a week both times

no one needs to go in person. All will be sorted by Visa Genie.

The beauty of visa genie is that you do not have to attend in person. They take the hassle out of having to travel to the Indian High Commission and at a reasonable cost. Speaking from someone who has done both routes I would recommend visa genie. When sending your documents I would ensure they go via registered post to ensure safe arrival.

When I used Visagenie I just sent my application with my passport and they visited the India Embassy to get the visa. It was a very easy and fast service.

We used Visa Genie in 2013. We dealt entirely by post and email, no need to attend in person. We were impressed with the service which included them producing the (very) specific photos by editing snaps we sent by phone/email. Queries were answered promptly and we were kept informed as the process proceeded. We were understandably concerned at submitting valuable documents 'into the ether' and were delighted when the passports with visas arrived promptly by registered post. The service was the best we have used, we recommend them.

I did not need to go to the Indian Embassy (or the Chinese Embassy when VisaGenie arranged my China visa). Their service was excellent.

If my passport is in my previous married name, when it asks for spouse's name do I put my current husbands name even though it's different to my name on my passport? This application form is very complex.

I would enter my current husbands name, but best ask Visa Genie. You may want to take your marriage certificate with you to the air port or a copy at least to prove that the passport is yours as you have not changed the name in this.

The question isn't clear. If your saying your maiden name is in your passport then the visa has to match that therefore put youre details exactly as they appear in your passport. If it asks for your husbands name then write his down (although I remember that they only request your details). One other bit of advice-ensure you have the full address of where you're staying as the airport authorities requires this.

Anything related to a flight or travel, ie visa, insurance, ticket has to be in the name of the passport otherwise they will not let you travel If you are travelling with your current husband then he will have his own visa in his name If in doubt get visa genie to do it for you - they cost very little and were very efficient when I got mine Hope this helps

Asked by MattBury on 23rd April 2014 Report this content
Hi, I am about to apply for a visa for China, but looking at the form there are sections I can't fully complete. When I arrive I am staying with a fellow student and exploring Beijing, so I don't have hotel details, then we are hoping to gradually move south but don't have a specific itinerary with dates of stops or hotels etc, Is this possible, would visa genie be able to be successful in applying for the visa when my tour of China is not fully planned. I do have a flight in and out booked but no hotel or internal flights. Can any one advise please? Matt

When I applied for my visa, I believe I only had to give details of the first hotel. You can always email visa genie with your question. They are very good at what they do.

I agree with luddite girl. Ask Visa Genie. I used them for China and India because they are very good.
