Is it true that you can get the visa for India online, and do you then have to wait for something to be mailed to you? I am concerned about how much time I need to allow for between booking a Golden Triangle tour and leaving for it. Also, for those of you who have done this tour, if you are a person who doesn't do well with extreme heat, would I be right in thinking late October, November, and March would be good times to go (I am leaving out the main part of the winter here in the midwest because I don't want to deal with snow delays in traveling here). Thank you.

You can indeed do visa online from their official site. I have done them. It can be annoying to get cc payment to go through. Three unsuccessful attempts and you have to start over. Sometimes they go right through. Each visa and payment must be done separately.

There are strict rules on when you can apply. Not sooner than 30 days as I remember before ARRIVAL date (not departure date from home) and must be done no later than 4 days before ARRIVAL date in India. Check site, as I am going from memory on the 30 and 4 day rule. It is about that if not exact.

What you get within a day of payment is basically a permission document to present at the eVisa counter at the end of the ARRIVAL hall in Delhi. Don't get in the regular visa line. Works well and your line is usually much shorter.

The file size of the passport photo you will upload must be pretty small. Scan at lower resolution and check file size and compare to rule. Too large a file will make the whole process bomb out and you will have to enter everything again. It happened to me.

I have gone to India twice, both times in November when weather is Ideal. We will return in 2018 and again will choose November.

I just checked eVisa site and found they have recently extended window for applying to 120 days maximum, still 4 days minimum. Takes some of the pressure off of problems with payment occur.
