India to ease visa norms for 40 countries including UK

Travellers from 40 countries, including those from United Kingdom, will soon be able to obtain a visa on arrival at several Indian airports. they will have to fill an online form before arrival though.

The facility was introduced for residents of Germany, France, Spain, Russia and Poland earlier this year, but was not offered to British travellers.

It was suggested it would only be offered to British nationals once a reciprocal system was introduced to those seeking entry to the UK. However, Indian officials seem to have backtracked as part of a concerted campaign to increase tourism to the country.

Although a definite date has not been announced, officials have said the new regulations would be introduced “as soon as possible”.
