1. How do I obtain a visa?

All non-Indian passport holders traveling to India for this event will need to apply for a conference/seminar visa or an eBusiness visa as soon as possible. We recommnd that you refer to your local consulate as the ultimate authority on all visa inquires and needs. The UN Global Compact is not responsible for the submission of your visa application nor for the ultimate approval or denial of your visa application. 

You will be asked to provide relevant passport information during the online registration process. Once your registration is completed and paid in full, you will subsequently receive a visa letter of support from the UN Global Compact via email. This letter should be submitted along with other documentation when applying for the visa.
