Chiranjeevi calls on Shinde over visa-on-arrival issue

Union tourism minister  K Chiranjeevi has met union home minister  Sushil Kumar Shinde on Friday and submitted a proposal to extend visa-on-arrivals to 16 countries.

The Ministry of Tourism strongly felt that the ‘tourist visa-on -arrival (TVOA)’ facility for those countries, which are potential source markets to India and where there have been no security related issues in the past or likely to be in future can be taken up under this scheme. Accordingly, the Ministry of Home Affairs accepted the proposal of the Ministry of Tourism and introduced ‘tourist visa-on-arrival’ scheme for the tourists from five countries viz. Singapore, New Zealand, Luxembourg, Japan and Finland on a pilot basis for a period of one year with effect from 1January, 2010.
