Visa norms get easier for tourists from 18 countries

Am surprised that the only country in SE Asia that is among the ones given the waiver is Vietnam and not Singapore which is a heavy investor in India. Not to count Australia where thousands of Indian students go to study every year. Hmmm…

Foreign tourists keen on visiting incredible India may no longer have to do umpteen rounds of the local Indian embassy to get their tourist visas. The government is considering a proposal to provide visa on arrivals to tourists coming from 18 countries, which already get five-year multiple entry visas.

These 18 countries include

Argentina
Belgium
Brazil
Chile
Finland
France
Germany
Iceland
Japan
Luxembourg
Mexico
Netherlands
New Zealand
Norway
Spain
South Korea
Switzerland
Vietnam.

Besides this, tourists from the United Kingdom also get a five-year visa while those from the United States of America get a 10-year visa.
