I have a valid (till feb 2018) 10 year, multiple entry, Indian tourist visa in an expired US passport. That visa was issued in 2010.
As required, I obtained a new current US passport, so new it's got nothing on it yet. We're traveling to India in 3 weeks.
My spouse has applied for an evisa as the consulate's representatives said they weren't sure we'd get a normal tourist visa in time.
When we get to India, I'd prefer to be allowed to go through the same immigration lines as evisa holders, both at the exit and entry as I'm wheelchair-bound and would appreciate having my husband at hand in the same line.
Can I get an evisa despite the existence of a valid tourist visa? That older visa is after all in an expired passport. Cox and Kings has no idea and referred me to the Bureau of Immigration in India, who do not always reply to email.
