You can apply for an e-Visa again
With immediate effect, electronic visas (e-visas) for certain travel purposes to India can be applied for again.
However, this only applies to the Business, Conference and Medical Visa categories.
Entry for tourist purposes is still not allowed, therefore no application, either electronically or via the consulates, is possible.
For trips with a technical background (maintenance / assembly etc.) it is also not possible to apply via e-Visa. In such cases, the visa applications (employment visa) still have to be applied for via the responsible consulate.
Travel and visa restrictions lifted
With immediate effect, the previously applicable travel and visa restrictions for German citizens, holders of a German residence permit and EU citizens residing in Germany will be lifted. For these applicants, it is possible to apply for all visa categories again. Visas for multiple entries will also be issued again.
The suspension of long-term visas is lifted, holders of a long-term visa that is still valid can use it again. Business visas can again be applied for with company invitations; a ministerial invitation is not mandatory.
Business Visum will be happy to support you again with the procurement of ministerial invitations.
Attention: Until further notice, entry into Russia is only allowed with a direct flight from Germany, travel via third countries or by land and sea is not permitted.
