Journalist Visa The visa is issued only to journalists and photographers for a period of up to three months. Documentary filmmakers should also contact their local Indian representation in Germany.
Applicants from the area of responsibility of the Indian Consulate General in Frankfurt please send the following documents in English and in PDF format by email to Ms. Ruby Jaspreet, Consul (Commercial, Press & Political) at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Journalists wishing to apply for a tourist visa must submit their application to IGCS without first submitting their documents to the consulate. In this case, journalists are issued visas, without the right to act journalistically in India.
A documentary film license may take up to 8 weeks from the filing date of the application.
