What is the Transit Visa?
If you are a Czech citizen travelling to India for tourism, business or study and you do not hold a valid Indian visa, you may be able to apply for a transit visa. The transit visa allows you to stay in India for up to six months while your application for a full Indian visa is processed. You must first obtain a travel document (a passport or an ID card) from the appropriate authorities in your home country. You then need to apply for the transit visa at the Indian embassy or consulate in your home country. The process will vary depending on which embassy or consulate you visit, but generally you will need to provide some documentation of your travel plans and evidence that you have enough money to cover expenses while in India.
Processing Time for Transit Visa
The processing time for a transit visa for Czech citizens is about five working days. For Indians, the processing time for a transit visa is about two working days.
