Q12 Which category of Visa will be granted to family
members of foreign nationals coming to India on Employment?
Ans. In respect of family members of a foreign national who
is granted ‘E’ Visa, Indian Missions may grant an ‘X’ Visa
[i.e. Dependent Visa]. The validity of the ‘X’ Visa could be
co-terminus with the validity of the Visa of the principal
Visa holder or for such shorter duration as may be
considered necessary by the Indian Mission, subject to usual
security checks provided the family members are otherwise
eligible for grant of such a Visa.
