The Indian government has trimmed down the e-Tourist visa fees for all international tourists for one-year to half — from $80 to $40. On the other hand, the fee for a five-year e-Tourist visa would be $80.
In the meantime, during the April to June period, the fee for a 30-day e-Tourist Visa has been decreased even more from $25 to $10.
In 2014, the online tourist visa was first introduced for 43 countries. This step was taken to advertise travel to India without visiting the embassy or waiting in long queues at border control.
In 2015, India introduced its e-Visa programme for other countries as well. In April 2017, the e-Visa programme was retooled. In this program visa sub-categories for tourists, business travelers and medical visits were introduced.
The procedure for e-Tourist Visa application will remain the same.
