India to start E Visa facility for foreign travelers

With India becoming one of the most preferred holiday destinations, the government of India is constantly working towards improvising the facilities for visitors to make it a comfortable journey for them to the country. Recently the government has announced that soon the tourists from as many as 40 nations would be able to apply for an E Visa from their home.

If the sources are to be believed, this new idea will come into existence by the end of 2014. The eligible countries for India ETA are the USA, the UK, Russia, Canada, Germany, Australia, Malaysia, France and others. As per the plans, the authorities are planning to include almost 109 nations in the eligible list by the start of the first phase of visa reform.

ETA or Electronic Travel Authorization is the easiest form of applying for a Visa. Once the applicant fills the application online, an online confirmation is sent to him within five working days. The validity period of ETA Visa is expected to  be 30 days from the day the tourist arrives in India.

A separate website would be set by the Indian government to make it easy for applicants to apply for their visa online. To avail the visa from this website the applicants would need to fill-in the visa application form with their details and submit it along with the required processing fees.
