India is working on a proposal for Visa on Arrival (VoA) facility for US tourists, one of the big-ticket announcements expected to be made during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s high-profile visit to the US, beginning on September 26.

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is working overtime to finish the work on the VoA proposal to finalise it in time for the Prime Minister’s visit, according to government sources.

The MHA, in consultation with the Tourism ministry, is working on the Tourist VoA under which visa can be granted to US citizens who do not have a residence or occupation in India and whose sole objective of visiting India would be recreation, sightseeing, casual visit to meet friends and relatives, etc, the sources said.
