Couldn’t have come at a better time for India, a country with huge tourist potential and a new government keen on opening it up on business and tourism front in a big way.
Tourists from about 40 countries including United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Canada, Germany, France, Malaysia and Australia, may be able to apply for a visa from the comfort of their home from next year. The PMO gave its nod for electronic visa for tourists from about 40 countries by December as part of the first phase of visa reforms.
ETA (electronic travel authorization) will allow foreign travelers to apply for a visa and receive an online confirmation in five working days…plans were afoot to include 109 countries once the first phase was successfully implemented.
ETA will be available for a 30-day period from the date of the tourist’s arrival in India.
