Top tip! Always have a native speaker check your visa when you have I, if it's not written in Latin script. One of middle names is James, and on my Russian visa, while my Christian, surname, and one of my middle names was correct, they had put a completely different name in instead of James. Clearly, I don't read Cyrillic, so I wouldn't have known had it not been for a Russian-speaker who noticed and I had to get it corrected. I could have arrived at the border and they may have refused me.
Getting an India visa is further complicated by the fact that the photo can't be more than 25k pixels or it won't upload. My system simply wouldn't process that poor a photo (the smallest it would save was 1.5 megapixels) and I had to pay $50 to have it scaled back and loaded onto a DVD at the Federal Express office.
