going visa dizzy

by jackiemac

Im sorry for this . we have been to Goa before and have usually gone to the visa surgery, last trip I printed off visa applications filled them in and sent to birmingham. Now I am so confused. I have read umpteen visa postings on various sites and dont know if I can still do what I last did??
It all seems so confusing? I think I need a dummy guide on the easiest way to apply for our visa's.
Please please help am about to fall off the merry go round !!
Many thanks

Why not just look at the official pages for getting a visa to India, and do what they say?

Indian visa provision in the UK has been outsourced. You'll find everything you need to know on:

http://in.vfsglobal.co.uk/

Just follow the steps they lay out and apply for your visa. Fill in the online form (top right of the page I've linked) and off you go! :-)

Absolutely! Fill up the visa to India, write Goa as your destination and zip it off. Should not be a problem at all.

As has been stated VFS Global now handle all applications for Goa.

Have just received my visa and it's quite straight forward.

Options are to apply on line by post or by visit to the addresses on their site.

a)On line, fill in application pay on line.
Then Print off the application form and send/visit enclosing passport.

b) Print off an ordinary application form fill it in and then send with postal order enclosing passport or visit and pay by card taking passport.

For some reason the on line application seemed to have one or two more questions than the hand written one.

I don't know if this has changed from before,but we applied for a 1 year multi but it was explained you need covering letters as to why you want this term.
For a 6 month multi no supporting docs needed

You cannot print off the visa form and fill it in by hand anymore.It has to be completed online.This is a new development which started this week.

Oh well.We did ours last week by hand but obviously stand corrected and were one of the last.
The beauty of VT

Re: going visa dizzy

Thank you all for your comments. Filled in the visa application and printed off the declarations now just need to get the 50x50 photographs . if anyone is struggling I have found that Timpsons do them for £5.99. Max spielman £9.99, If you are thinking of going to Timpson ring them beforehand to make sure they have the correct photograph machine.As one of the branches in Manchester city centre did not have the facility.
If you need them and are in Manchester you can get them done in the Arndale centre city centre , arndale centre stretford (Timpsons) and max spielman Piccadilly.
Hope this helps

Jackie, that's really useful to know. It would make an excellent tip on your VT Goa pages. People travelling from the Mancs area aren't likely to see this thread but may well have a look at the VT pages beforehand. :-)

Travel Tips for Goa

south goa vs north goa

by amitgupta76

If you have to decide where to stay, simple . if you want activity, with playing and drinking with the crowds, eating fish at the shacks, and simply observing the crowds, go to North Goa. great places from 400 to 10000 Rs are available. the Govt Resorts are good, particularly the Calungute Residency is nice.
On the other hand, if you just want to be on white sands with maybe 5- 10 people on the beach, with a sun umbrella, and a beer and nothing much on you, just go to South Goa.

It is very far from the irport, but your hotel will arrange transport, it is a bit expensive, but hey, u are on a holiday right, not at home. take the beer from outside the hotel anywhere, it si cheap and cold.

Fruit Sellers

by Cat1976

If you see women walking around the beach with giant baskets of fruit on their head, by all means, buy some.

The fruit is delicious and very well priced and very refreshing when you are lying in the hot sun.

You can also feed the cows with your leftovers.

(Just a little hint..I have seen many a man try and lift the baskets to put back on the ladies heads....lads, if you aren't the strongest, don't try, unless you seriously want your masculinity dented....those baskets weight a ton)

The Wildlife

by susie46

You will see wildlife in Goa. During our visit we were driving along when the taxi suddenly stopped..there was a huge snake slithering from one side of the road to the other side. We also saw sea snakes, oxen pulling carts, monkeys in the trees, lots and lots of dogs ( usually sheltering from the heat under your sunbed ) It was delightful to watch the sacred cows roaming on the beach and on the main road - they didn't have a care in the world, not so good though when you are walking in flip flops late at night - squelch !

Interesting gifts bought in Goa

by nora_south_africa

I bought some really different sweets( mango flavour is delicious) and some coconut hair treatment, and herbal shampoo and toothpaste... plz try these things that are different while you are in Goa and India, some of them are really very good.

Respect the Cows!

by dhod

White cows are considered to be sacred creatures in India- and the animals know it. They are free to go wherever they like, at first it seems strange to see the cows wandering onto the beach, usually at lunch time when they can smell the food!
The cows can be quite affectionate- not like the smelly timid things we get in the UK, and strangely but the Indian cows do not seem to smell.
The younger cows tend to be a bit more adventureous and sniff around the tourists for food scraps, but it becomes part of the daily routine to feed the leftovers to them- they like beer too!
