You can visit the Consulate of India in San Francisco, Houston, Chicago, or New York so that you can apply in person for your Indian visa. If you arrive early in any Indian Consulates in the United States, you can typically leave the same day once you already have your visa. You can also apply this instruction when you apply for an Indian visa at the Indian Embassy in Washington.
However, if you cannot go personally to the Indian Embassy or any of the Indian Consulates, you have to send your new passport and your visa application through the mail. One of my contacts informed me that visa application via mail normally takes within ten business days before you obtain your passport and visa affixed to it. This case will only apply to you once you have your new passport. When you send your request through the mail, you have to provide at least two identical pictures, and you must also download and fill out an Indian visa application form.
If you are a citizen of the United States and applying for an Indian visa in the Embassy of India or any of the Indian Consulates in the United States, cash is the only way of for you to pay for any fee related to your visa application.
Bottom line: What you need is to count ten days from the time or day you have your passport returned to you and after you send it again until the day you receive it along with your visa inside. You must be okay depending on the date of your departure, but it would be better if you do it the soonest time possible. There is certainly no possibility that you can obtain your visa when you arrive. There is a separate process when you are applying for an Indian visa in person at a consulate or embassy.
If you want to ask more questions, you can call the Embassy of India in Washington D.C. at (202) 939-9865 or send your e-mail at email@example.com.

Are PIO Card, Indian Visa or an OCI Card required for a baby born in the United States?
I need someone to give me some assistance. I am soon returning to India. My spouse and I are citizens of India (We are holding Indian passports). Our baby was born in the United States. Can someone help me understand what my baby needs? I would like to know what exactly he would need and if it would be an OCI card, PIO card or Indian visa. We will stay India in India for no less than six months. After few years, we will stay again in the United States before we come back the baby. Both of us will come on L2 and L1 Visa because we have to travel with our baby back and forth. What is the most appropriate step to do in accordance with the law, and which of the three (PIO card, OCI card or Indian visa) should we get?

A passport coming from the United States and a PIO permits you to go to any places you want except the places that are restricted.

3. Give your trip details, pictures, visa fee, passport number, and finished application for the visa you are applying for.

Can I easily obtain Chinese, Pakistani, and Indian visa in Dubai?
Can I easily obtain Chinese, Pakistani, and Indian Visas In Dubai? To put it simpler, I think my question is would it be quicker if I get Chinese, Pakistani and Indian Visa (If you are a Canadian) in Dubai? Or will it be easier if I do it in Central Asia? I will be in Dubai in January, Iran in the spring. Then, I will come to Central Asia (Particularly in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan) in the Summer. I will cross the Chinese border, To Kashgar, before I go down to Pakistan through the Friendship Highway, and then I will finally arrive in India at the Lahore/ Amritsar Border. Since I would be required to have a Chinese, Pakistani, and Indian visa, apparently, I would like to get all of them quickly at the nearest embassy, or consulate in the area. I want to know if I should avail all these tourist visas in Dubai all at the same time or only if I travel and need them on the road in Iran, Or Central Asia? Some say that doing the latter can be troublesome because some embassy officials outside the industrialized world are difficult to deal with. Getting a Chinese Visa in Canada is very effortless, and within three days, you can get one that will last for three months for $50. I wonder if it will be the same in Dubai?
It is probably possible for you to obtain a visa for the other countries that you listed from here too.

I have finished filling out and printing my application for a visa, and I have also attached my passport photo.
What other things do I have to bring? There is nothing mentioned on the website of BLS.
I am aware that the total amount that I have to pay for the visa is $67. However, I am not sure whether I can make the payment in cash at the center or not, or if it must just be a blank money order for the said amount. How I wish that they would give a clearer explanation of how this entire process works.
Obviously, I will have to bring my application and my U.S. Passport, but is that all that I need to bring? I have to ensure that this appointment is going to succeed.
Do I have to get a transit visa If I am traveling from the United States to India through Vancouver, B.C., Canada?
I am currently working in the United States, and I am using a valid non-immigrant visa. Also, I am a citizen of India. I will need to visit my country, and I got a ticket from Lufthansa which is taking from Portland in the United States to Canada (specifically, Vancouver) via Air Canada. From there, I will go to Frankfort before I arrive in India via Lufthansa Airlines. We will just stay for one hour in Canada. Do we have to get a transit visa since we are traveling through Canada? And if yes, can I do it in the airport itself?
Other people who need to get a visa to enter Canada also have to obtain one for them to transit through a particular Canadian airport. They can apply for this visa through one of the Canadian visa offices in the USA. It is also not possible to issue a visa upon arrival. There is no fee when applying for a visa.
Indian citizens also need to secure an airport transit visa for Frankfurt which is in Germany. This requirement is applicable even if these people stay in the airport's international transit zone. This process does not apply, however, for US visa bearers when they are coming back home after they have used their visa. Kindly provide proof showing that you have gone legally to the United States.
What would be the quickest way to obtain an India Visa Chicago.?
Applications for visa on the same day for citizens of US who are born in any place in the United States must be filed personally to an outsourcing office. Also, you need to schedule an appointment which you have to select before you finish applying online. You will also have to make the payment with Money Order or Cash. If they grant you a visa, picking it up within the same day is also possible. However, this does not guarantee that all requests will receive approval on the same day. Some approved applications are issued the next business day.
How would a 2017 Indian visa appear?
I am now in the process of getting a six-month Indian tourist visa together with my passport. The post office got my photo; however, they were not able to take any space above my head. I think if I have to get another passport photo or just utilize this passport that I have now. I would like to know, as well, if the Indian visa is a stamp on the passport or if it has a picture of the holder, too.
Could I spend at least seven days in India using this one-year multiple entry business visa that I have?

I need to go to my place of business for the first week. After that week, I will spend my holiday and travel to the Southern India for a week. Somebody told me that I could do these things using my visa; however, I am looking for someone who can assure me that they will allow this matter.
- Pakistan people who have an Indian visa have few options as they are not allowed to explore the country freely, and they need to stay in the city in which they are permitted.

The Embassy of India in San Francisco was very cooperative. If you are located in that place, I suggest that you go there as they have a walk up counter for those who are getting their visa. You may also want to do Express Mail. You will need at least two pictures. I also recommend that you stay strictly as a tourist because some other locations open up various types of bureaucratic scrutiny and inquiries.
