It is advisable to download the form, print it, fill it and present it to the Visa Officer at visa counters on arrival at six international Indian airports: Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai.

UAE passports should have a minimum validity of six months remaining for visas on arrival. Such visitors should not have residency or be employed in India.
