COMMON MISTAKES TO AVOID

You have to ensure data on visa application form is 100% accurate and correct. 

  1. NAMES DO NOT MATCH THOSE IN YOUR US/NON-US PASSPORT: The names that you enter on the application on the application must match exactly that which is printed in your passport. Below is an example;

    Surname: Surname is the same as Family Name or Last Name. (The spelling must be exactly the same as the last name in the applicant’s US/Non-US passport)

    Given Name: On the Indian Visa application Form, Given Name is the same as First Name and Middle Name; please type in the First Name and any Middle Name(s) here. (The name must be exactly as it is in the applicant’s US/Non-US passport)
     
  2. SIGNATURES: You must sign your name, exactly as in your passport, on the first page and second page of the visa application. There must not be any variation between signature on the US/Non-US passport and on the Visa application form.
     
  3. CORRECT DATE FORMAT: Date format will always be DD/MM/YYYY and not MM/DD/YYYY.
     
  4. PASSPORT NUMBER: Ensure correct passport number is entered.
     
  5. PHOTOGRAPH: if photo is uploaded online then it must be identical to the photograph affixed on the form.
