UK passport holders travelling to India are now eligible for its new electronic visa-on-arrival (VoA) service after the New Delhi confirmed plans to expand the scheme to 150 countries.
The initiative, initially launched for the citizens of 43 countries in late November 2014, enables tourists to apply for a visa online without having to visit the Indian embassy. Once approved, the applicant will receive an email authorising them to travel to India.
This notification will then be presented to immigration authorities at one of nine Indian airports, allowing the visitor to obtain a visa-on-arrival. The initial list of 43 countries including several key source markets for India, such as the US, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, South Korea and the majority of Southeast Asian countries. Some notable omissions from the previous list, including the UK, Canada, Malaysia, France and China, will be included.
