e-Visa facility

e-Tourist visa facility is presently available to the nationals of 150 countries at 16 designated international airports in India. E-Tourist visa can be granted for a period of 30 days with single entry. Further, e-tourist Visa can be availed only twice in a calendar year. On e-tourist visa, foreign nationals are permitted recreation, sightseeing, casual visit to meet friends or relatives, attending a short term yoga programme, short duration medical treatment including treatment under Indian systems of medicine or casual business visit etc.

The proposal to extend the e-Tourist visa window to 180 days instead of the current 30 days and allowing multiple entry on the said visa instead of the existing single-entry as well as to extend the maximum stay up to 90 days from the existing 30 days, is under consideration of the government.

E-Tourist visa and visa on arrival facilities have been introduced by the Government of India as a unilateral measure with the objective of promoting tourism in India. However, many foreign countries have extended e-visa and visa-on-arrival facilities to Indian nationals. Some countries have exempted Indian passport holders form the requirement of visa.
