Procedure for Visa on Arrival Application: In order to make an application for visa on arrival, the visitor will be required to go through the following steps-
Under visa on arrival scheme, a traveler can choose a maximum twice to travel India. At any point of time for further information, a traveler can visit https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/visa/tvoa.html to clarify doubts, if any.
The fee of this Visa or ETA is a non-refundable amount of USD 60 excluding other bank fees. Recently, the Ministry of Tourism has proposed to extend this facility to other nations of China, Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, France and Malaysia. However, nationalities with origin or citizenship of Pakistan cannot apply for ETA and hence will have to apply for a regular tourist visa to enter India.
Additionally, the traveler must not hold any residential property in India but must have passports with a validity of a minimum six months along with the necessary financial soundness for purchasing a return ticket to his or her native place. The Visa under ETA cannot be extended or converted into any other kind. Travelers holding ordinary passports but Diplomatic and Official passports can avail this scheme.
India may have been late in launching the ‘Visa on Arrival’ Scheme, but has definitely sparked speculation and witnessed increased interest from travelers worldwide. At a time when technology is so advanced and the world is becoming a smaller place, indeed, this scheme is a highly considerate and timely move to pace up with the rest of the nations.
