I'm Sri Lankan passport holder. I found Sri Lanka is in eVisa supported country list. Can I apply for eVisa to attend a conference for 4 days?


I got an email from e-Visa support center.

Dear applicant,

evisa is not eligible for conference purposes

From what I have learnt on India e-Visa page, you can surely apply for eVisa.


Since very recently (around November 2018?), it is possible to apply for a conference e-visa. See the Indian e-visa website.

    I have the impression that in most cases yes, but it can be also NGO, etc. My understanding is that the conditions are the same as for the non-electronic conference visa, and I know a good summary at: ivs-germany.com/ConferenceVisa.aspx – Harold Dec 27 '18 at 9:37
