a VirtualTourist member asked on Jul 5, 2008
I am wondering if it's possible to renew an Indian Tourist Visa beyond six months, either within India or by leaving the country and re-entering. If it's necessary to leave the country, for how much time must one be out of the country? Is there anything else I should know?
You have to leave India in order to apply for a new tourist visa. You don't have to be a certain number of days/months out of the country to do this. In theory you can leave India and apply on the same day for a visa for example at the Indian Consulate in Kathmandu (Nepal). Good luck...
post this question in india forum,you will get better answers.that is all i cansay in the matter.
hope this helps
