I need to go to India using an emergency visa in five days.

I must go to India on the 10th of January from Canada. I already have a ticket and Canadian Passport. I just want to know now if I can get an emergency visa on the next day. It will take five to seven working days if I process an application for a regular visa. What will I need to explain so I can have a visa for an emergency? Do I need to apply in four days or two days before my departure?

You have to inform them with regards to your emergency if it is valid or legitimate.

I recommend that you visit the Embassy of India or any Indian consulate so you can check if the completion of your visa application can happen sooner.
