Adding up to the convenience
Every individual has the dream of traveling to a foreign nation for different purposes within both personal and professional fronts. One of the very important documents that need to be carried on such journeys is the visa, which acts as the proof of authentication and identity to enter and exit the foreign soil easily. The conventional methods demanded the applicants to book slots and then wait in line at the embassy offices to get the visa done for even short term visits.
However, the Indian government has eased up on this by introducing the concept of Evisa for short visits. Partnering with 150+ countries, it would be good news for the Mexicans to know that they are also eligible for the facility. The upcoming content clears all of the queries on this matter.
How would the Indian e visa help you?
For the Mexicans, Indian evisa would act as the digital proof to enter and exit the Indian lands freely without any hassles. It gets linked to the issuer’s passport and gets scanned automatically at designated airport or seaport visited. The main idea for this concept is to cut short the waiting time that would have been wasted in waiting for the day of the appointment at the embassy.

The following are the short-term purposes for which Mexicans are allowed to receive the Indian e Visa:
