Warning on bogus Indian visa websites
KUALA LUMPUR: The Indian High Commission in Malaysia has warned that various websites that are not authorised by the Indian government have been soliciting visa seekers to apply for Indian visas through the online portals without paying a service fee.
According to a statement by the Indian High Commission, the only authorised online visa application form is available at: http://www.indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/.
“While applying for a visa, please note that no fee is charged for filling the form or taking print-outs.
