I will be on a Celebrity Constellation cruise in February that stops in three ports in India, for a total of four days (overnight in Mumbai on the ship). Is one evisa sufficient for all of this? Other ports are Cochin and Goa, all entry points for evisas. Having trouble getting a straight answer on this as there have been many changes in the past year.

  • Thanks for that David. However, I have heard that when you are on a cruise ship, three ports in the same country (India) only counts as one entry in which case one evisa is enough. Having trouble getting confirmation of that. Hoping to hear from cruisers who have done this. – LDTerra Jan 2 at 5:43
  • @LDTerra I have no idea. Has the OP asked the cruse line? – David Jan 2 at 21:16

On this Government of India webpage, the text says:

The validity of e-Visa (except e-Conference visa) will be 60 days from the date of arrival in India. In case of e-Conference visa, the validity will be 30 days from the date of arrival in India. Double entry is permitted on e-Tourist visa and e-Business visa. Triple entry will be permitted on e-Medical visa and e-Medical Attendant visa. Only single entry is permitted on e-Conference visa. (emphasis added)

Thus, you'll need two eVisas for the three Indian ports.
