India reduces visa fees for the tourists after arriving under successful ETV scheme, which has helped 900% jump arrival of tourists.

India's fee for ETV has been USD 60, and this facility must be extended to 113 nations. However, there are many nations that offer ETV or visa on arrival to Indians at a lesser fee, few of them offer USD 20, USD 35 or USD 40 and few do not charge any fees. Most nations are seeking our nation, India to reciprocate the gesture.

Even though a formal announcement has been made; it has been learned that, nearing to total four fee slabs between 60 to nil. We find the fee for the ETV would be completely on the basis of reciprocity.

We plan to make the visa fee in four slabs, USD 20, USD 48, USD 60 and no visa fee would be levied for new nations. We require sending the proposal to the external affairs Ministry

We wish to make the visa fee in four different slabs USD 20, USD 48, USD 60 and no Visa fee would be levied from the new nations.

We need to send the proposal to External Affairs Ministry for the final approval, A home Ministry said.

The ETV fees were rationalized following the request of those friendly nations.

As per ETV scheme, the applicant does receive an email authorizing him or her to travel to India, after it has been approved, and he or she can travel with their print out of their authorization.

On the arrival, the visitors need to present the authorization to the immigration authorities who need then stamp the entry into the nation.

India presently offers ETV facility to Citizens belonging to 113 nations and it does plan to raise it to 150 nations by March 31, 2016. The tourists can arrive at 16 designated airports across the nation.
