I'm trying to apply for a 12 month Indian tourist visa from the UK. The reasons why I need a 12 month visa rather than 6 month are quite complex, but I do not have family or property in India, which I think are the normal reasons for obtaining 12 months visas.
What experience do people have with this? I am going to include a cover letter with my application; should I be brief or explain every detail in full (would take approx. two pages). I've been told to include a itinerary, but as the visa has not been granted, I have not yet booked tickets. How much is this likely to harm my application?
Thanks for your help
