I AM A RUSSIAN CITIZEN RESIDING IN BELGIUM, CAN I APPLY FOR AN INDIAN VISA FROM THE INDIAN EMBASSY IN BRUSSELS?
The Embassy of India has outsourced visa applications to private agencies. If you are an authorized Belgian resident holding a Russian passport valid for six months, you are allowed to apply for an Indian visa for Russian citizen online through the assigned VAC. This visa is issued online for stays up to 90 days, without visiting the Indian Consulate or undergoing an interview. The online process is straightforward, and the e-Visa is emailed to you within 4 to 6 business days. The application should be made online between 4 and 240 days prior to the expected date of arrival in India.
