Travel to India requires a visa in advance for citizens of most countries. For application requirements and details on how to apply, please consult the Indian consulate in your home country.
While obtaining an Indian visa is generally straightforward, there can be some processing delays depending on an individual application. To ensure that you receive your visa in time to attend SITIS 2017, we urge you to apply for an Indian visa as early as you can.
"Visas for international conferences, or on certain subjects, may be issued to delegates if they are able to produce an invitation to a conference/seminar/workshop being organized in India by a Ministry or Department of the Government of India, State Governments, Public Sector Undertakings, Central Educational Institutions, Public Funded University or an organization owned and controlled by the Government of India or State Government, UN or its specialized agencies and reputed NGOs."
If you are applying for a conference visa, it is preferred to have the invitation letter from the organizers. If you require the letter, please send an email to with subject: "SITIS2017 - Request for Invitation Letter".
The organizing team of SITIS 2017 has been advised that, to avoid any delays in visa processing, they should provide some personal details of conference participants to the Ministry of External Affairs (Government of India, New Delhi) about two months in advance. While SITIS 2017 cannot guarantee that a visa will be issued, providing this information will facilitate the visa issuance process. Please provide the requested information through this form. If you have any questions about this request, please email at email@example.com. Please complete this form as soon as possible.
