India - I’m Australian How do I get a tourist visa?

hey guys from Australia

I’m get mixed info. It’s stating the tourist visa is $80 but then being charged $100 for processing. Is this accurate? Never experienced these costs through 18 diff countries in Asia. Is there an easier or cheaper way?

Sorry, I'm confused. What country are you wanting a visa for? India or Malaysia? Your topic heading sorta says India but your posting in the Malaysia forum

Since Australian Citizens do not require a visa for Malaysia, but require a visa for india, I think the post is for applying for a visa in India.

The official information source should be the consular general website

http://cgisydney.gov.in/

From that website, it states visa services are outsourced to vfs global. You should follow their schedule of fees. Anyone else is probably a middleman charging some sort of runner fee in addition.

vfsglobal.com/india/…tourist.html

The fee calculator is here. Its rather complex
