India to reduce e-tourist visa fees



  • India has decided to reduce visa fees for tourists arriving under the highly successful Electronic Tourist Visa (ETV) scheme.
  • India’s fee for ETV is USD 60 and the facility extends to 113 countries.
  • Under the ETV scheme, an applicant receives an email authorising him or her to travel to India after it is approved and he or she can travel with a print-out of this authorisation.
  • On arrival, the visitor has to present the authorisation to the immigration authorities who would then stamp the entry into the country.
