Visa on arrival for S. Koreans from April


India will start offering visa-on-arrival (VOA) to South Korean tourists at its major airports for their convenience starting from next week, its embassy in Seoul said on April 10. The decision was made during South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s state visit to India in January to improve ties between the two nations, the Indian embassy said.

Korean visitors will be able to apply for a single entry tourist visa available for one month on arrival at eight airports for a fee of US$60 or the equivalent amount in Indian Rupees. The facility will be available at Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi airports.

Visitors can apply for the visa on arrival up to twice in a year, with a minimum of a two month gap between the visits. Tourists can also apply for the VOA online prior to their travel through the Indian Visa Application Center (http://www.blsindiavisa.kr/).
