Going to India
You need to get a visa to visit India. When we went to Brazil we needed a visa too. Brazil's visa lasts for 10 years and for India there are a variety of choices. We opted for the six month which is all we need which is the shortest amount of time you can get.
Never quite got the visa thing but have always thought it was just a process to charge everyone entering the country something and forcing you just to go the extra mile to come. Regardless, I did it.
Getting the Brazilian visa was far from seamless but India was a piece of cake. The information is online, you fill out all the information, get a bar code, make an appointment and show up. All incredibly impressive.
I went up to east 53rd street today with my information in hand. One for everyone including passport pics and our passports. Stamp, stamp and then a text on my phone to tell me the visas are ready for pick up.
Gotta love that.
