Frequent travellers, prominent Indians may get special facility at airports
Frequent travellers and prominent Indians, including film stars, could soon avoid the hassle of standing in long queues at immigration counters in some major airports in the country as the government is planning to set up dedicated kiosks for them for seamless travel.
According to a Home Ministry proposal, prominent Indians, and business travellers with unblemished record may be offered the facility of minimum paper work in special immigration counters in select airports while travelling to and fro abroad.
“Discussions are still going on with various stakeholders and the proposal may come into reality in next few months,” a senior Home Ministry official said. One of the key criteria for those whose name can be included in the list is that the person has to have a clean background with no criminal past.
