I love visiting India. Both trips I’ve taken there were wonderful experiences (like this or this) and I really want to spend more time there. One of the annoying things about the trips is the visa process. Not because it is hard – at least in NYC it is pretty easy – but there is still plenty of standing in lines and paying the fees. That policy may be changing soon, however, as India looks to possibly switch to visa on arrival for citizen of some 40 countries.
It seems that someone in the Indian government has realized they make a decent amount of money on in-bound tourism and that they could make more if they made it easier for tourists to get to the country. Meetings are expected this coming week to discuss the topic. No idea what the timeline would be on a possible change but I’m hopeful that it comes. My 10-year visa is still valid but I’m likely to get in trouble if I visit (too often) without my wife and getting her a new visa would be nice to do when we get there rather than dealing with the agency in NYC again.
