Hi Andy,

we will pass Athens beginning f next week. Can you give us some detailed informations about this India embassy - company. Maybe the location and other necessary documents or items??

I was thinking, maybe find a cheap (?) ferry from Dubai to any place in India...

Take care!!

Ale

Ed March was here a while ago and he has done it the visa versa this year, and sure the cheapest way.

Also interesting travelling videos available in his blog for Dubai and India.

Give him a big hello and selam from us.He does the best way of travelling....

Welcome to my C90 Adventures

Best Wishes.

Hi Alex, I might still be doing that if I can't get the Pakistan transit. I doubt the ferry from Dubai will be that cheap, I know Harry Lyon-Smith (vegioil.com) ended up flying his bike!

The company is India's official outsourcing company. Note that the total ended up being €90 so I left it. I confirmed its less than half that to get it direct from the Indian embassy in Turkey. Either way it'll take a week. You need two biometric passport photos, to fill the India application online and two photocopies of your passport. A bank statement is needed if you go to the Istanbul Embassy.

Its possible (according to Indian Embassy in Athens) to go to Nepal and back by getting another visa application at the capital to re-enter India. The two month grace period doesn't apply to Nepal which makes this possible.

Forum post on the subject.

Good luck!

I'm in Athens but might be leaving tomorrow or the day after for a two week stint around Europe, then returning to Athens for a day, then jetting back to the UK for a wedding.

I've confirmed the Istanbul process is definitely possible and half the price so no reason to do it in Athens. Bare in mind the company will charge you €90 regardless of whether its successful or not!
