I have a question regarding a tourist Visa. I am from the Channel Island, and have a British Passport and I would like to apply for a tourist visa to go to Goa for 2 weeks in November. I know usually a 6 month tourist Visa is issued, but I would like to know what will happen when I return to England in late November, as I would then like to head back out to India from January for 6 months on a new Tourist Visa (as I will have returned back to the UK in November and will reside there until January). Will this be possible?

Your advise would be greatly appreciated,

Just need to specify at the time of application that you need a multiple entry visa. One multiple entry visa would cost you less and would save you a trip to the Indian embassey. –  Parminder Singh Chahal Sep 3 '13 at 22:01

I have gotten several multiple-entry and single-entry visa over the last years. It works as follows:

Both visa types have a start & expiry date. With a multiple entry visa, you can enter and exit as often as you like within the timeframe. If you get a single-entry visa, you can enter anytime within the timeframe, and when you do so, a stamp with the immigration date will be placed on the visa to invalidate it. Then you can only exit the country. If you try to re-enter, that visa will not be valid anymore.

Therefore, you will either have to get a multiple entry visa or several single entry visa.
