Travelling to India has never been easier thanks to the new e-Tourist Visa Canada.
India is welcoming more Canadians to India this coming season with the e-Tourist Visa Canada being made available to Canadian citizens. During his inaugural bilateral visit to Canada in April 2015, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that Canada would be added to a list of countries eligible for the visa on-arrival program. In the past, Canadians were required to apply in-person at one of the Indian consulates, enduring a labourous process that oftentimes deterred aspirational travellers from visiting. As of May 1st, clients visiting India for recreation and sightseeing can now simply apply online, upload their passport info, pay the US$62 fee, and travel to India with their printed e-Toursit visa (eTV) and have it stamped when they arrive at immigration.
