India relaxes tourist visa rules; no need for two month sit-out for multiple entry
Indian visa rules have become very arbitrary over the years, mainly as a result of paranoia about terrorism and Pakistan. This rule will help not just foreign tourists, but also the Indian diaspora that makes frequent trips to the country.

Tourists visiting India and then, say, popping over the border to Nepal no longer need to wait two months to re-enter the country.
After the attacks on Mumbai in November 2008, India tightened its visa rules to stop people with multiple re-entry visas from leaving India and returning soon after.
There are some exceptions. The two-month wait will still apply to nationals of Afghanistan, China, Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, Sudan, Bangladesh, foreigners of Pakistan and Bangladesh origins and stateless persons, the home ministry said in a statement.
