India Paper Visa question

Post by TheNonFlyingDutchman »

This might be as far as this forum reaches, but I’m hoping to find anyone with similar experiences.

Since I entered India from Pakistan over landthrough the wagah border, I needed a paper visa instead of an e-visa. (I got this via Visatronix Islamabad for 100 dollar. Applied for a 1y multi entry, received a 3 month single entry. Apparently everyone gets this. Worst part: I had to find out after some weeks that those 3 months are counting from the day they hand out the visa. So I had 2 months and 1 week left when I entered India).

These 2 months are surely not enough for me and I applied for an extention. As I was told by several people before, indeed you cannot extend this paper visa.

My new idea is to do a lil visa run to Sri Lanka and apply for an E-Visa there. I’m only wondering if there’s a risk of me not getting that E-Visa after spending 2 months on a paper visa already?

I doubt that anyone has similar experiences but I hope so. Also: anyone taken the new ferry to Sri Lanka already?
