High Commission of India
Online payment of Indian Visa Application Processing Fee
The High Commission of India in Bangladesh has been taking various initiatives to make the visa application process simpler and applicant friendly. Towards this objective, the Indian Visa Application Centres (IVACs), managed by the State Bank of India on behalf of the High Commission of India, is initiating a ‘Cashless’ visa application system from 4th October, 2017. This means an applicant will be able to pay the visa application processing fee using online modes of payment. Applicants will need to fill in the application form and make payment online before visiting an IVAC for submission of application. Please note that the online payment facility is open only to Bangladesh Passport holders. The existing mode of payment of visa application processing fee through mobile wallets also will continue until further notice.
2. Online payments (available round the clock) for Indian Visa Application Processing fee can be made by following the procedure outlined below:–
