There is a Lady over on Tripadvisor 'Goa forum' that writes an excellent guide to Indian eVisa applications named Igirl , here is a link to her guide that also details costs. docs.google.com/doc…ing

What's the visa on arrival situation nowadays? They only brought that in once I'd already had my fill of India

For people expecting a lovely romantic, exotic destination, think again! Calangute/Calangute are like the Indian version of Blackpool! If you go prepared for that, then fair play. You can soon get away from the crowds but be careful if you decide to take a scooter!
Been to Goa a couple of times.
Last time I was there I stayed at So My Resorts and loved it!
At this price this is a great deal for a December trip and 10 days is a nice amount of time to be there.

Candolim beats Calangute hands down and Bougainvillea Guest House & D'Hibiscus are THE placesto be in!!
Heat given for a cheapie getaway if you don't mind slumming it in Calangute.

Out of interest.
Is that all year round ?

Calangute? Yeah, it's pretty much just a collection of hotels - a lot of ugly multistory concrete monstrosities. Dec/Jan it will be chaos. But if you just want to base yourself there then it's fine, there's lots of stuff around you

In December day time temperatures are usually in the low 30's dropping to the high teens in the early hours. We have been going to Goa for over 10 years now . We prefer Candolim to Calangute as it is a little quieter . both resorts are next to each other along with Baga. In less than 2 hours you can walk along the beach taking in all 3 resorts, with literally a beach shack every 50 yards there's plenty of opportunity for refreshments along the way.
I'm goan, AMA

Just changed last week.
Good deal op. Calangute or candolim the atmosphere will be be festive in December but the crowds would be an eyesore. I would prefer much quiter beaches like Mobor or Cavelossim though to just laze out on the beach.

Calangute is very busy, but not usually that bad......except when there's a public holiday - Goa Liberation Day (19.12.19) and Christmas will fall into these travel dates

If you want to stay away from the crowds, go to North Goa. Vagator Beach is beautiful.
NotAnonymous11/09/2019 14:36

Is that picture above your post a fair representation?


The beach in that part of Goa stretches for miles. This picture would be from the Baga/Calangute side taken during the peak time of the day.
Beach shacks line the top of the beach much of the way and it depends which section of the beach you are on and the time of day. Some sections are less busy than others and tends to be less busy towards Candolim and Fort Aguada where its gets a bit more upmarket and the prices for food and drinks goes up a bit.
I was there last in January and stayed at So My Resorts in Calangute which has a great pool and good value tasty restaurant and pool-side bar. Some days were spent by the pool and other times we strolled down to the nearest beach shack. Where we got a sun-lounger and great service. It had a good relaxed laid back atmosphere and you could spend half a day there drinking cold beers or glass bottles of pop, have snacks or lunch and its extremely good value!

Go to Mandrem or one of the other beaches, nothing like this. But Calangute can get busy

What about a indefinite visa I have an OCI will that be sufficient?
geeza78611/09/2019 18:51

What about a indefinite visa I have an OCI will that be sufficient?


OCI is enough mate..

In fact

If you have an OCI you can live ( or even work !!in most professions*) in India for as long as you want ..

*AFAIK an OCI has almost all the rights of an Indian national to work, live and buy commercial and residential property without any restriction.

But you are not allowed to buy agricultural property and are not allowed to apply for certain government posts .

I am an OCI and you can pm me in case you have any other questions.

Are you sure you can buy property with an OCI card? It might be cheaper than a hotel

It's a picture of it during peak time and season, hence why it's crowded. Goa has a lot of beautiful beaches so finding a less crowded one is not a problem.
