India has set new plans to attract more international visitors to the country. The Tourism Ministry of India stated that India had launched a new 5-year and a 1-Year e-Tourist Visa for foreign tourists.
Foreign tourists need to pay $80 for a 5-year Tourist Visa and $40 for a 1-year Visa. The Tourism Ministry has also introduced a one-month e-Tourist Visa costing $25. India would reduce the visa fee for the one-month Visa to $10 during the off-season between April and June. The fee will initially be reduced for visitors from Japan, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Russia, Mozambique, Ukraine, the US and the UK.
The Tourism Ministry had introduced these e-Tourist Visa plans to increase the inflow of tourists between the tourist season from July to March. The new e-Tourist Visa plans will also remain active during the lean season between April and June.
There was a 2.1% increase in the number of tourists visiting India between January and July 2019 as compared to the same duration during 2018. The Tourism Ministry aims to increase the growth of tourists to India by reducing the visa fee.
India has been experiencing a large growth in the number of tourists from China every year. Hence, India had set up a regional tourist office in China.
More than 50 lakh Chinese tourists travel across the world every year. Almost 3.5 lakh Chinese tourists visit India every year. Chinese tourists in India love to visit places related to Gautam Buddha. The Tourism Ministry had put up signages in all such places frequented by Chinese visitors.
India has also reduced the GST on hotel room tariff of Rs 7,500 to increase the growth of tourists to India.
