In a recent survey conducted by international travel search site Skyscanner, 89 per cent of Indian travellers are in favour of a common visa to visit more than one country in the ASEAN region. This is similar to the Schengen visa that applies to the 26 countries of the European Union. The survey was conducted among 1,000 Indian travelers, who travelled frequently, to understand how visas affected their travel decisions.
The results of the survey illustrated the extent to which visa requirements influenced the holiday choices of Indian travellers, with three quarters admitting that their choice of destination was ‘often dictated by visa requirements’.
Interestingly,, two out of five travellers in the older age groups (55+ category) said they considered holiday destinations irrespective of the visa issues. If visas were not an issue, the most popular holiday destination that Indians were predisposed to travelling was the US with 240 travellers voting in favour of it, followed by the UK, Singapore and Switzerland which received 120, 70 and 60 votes respectively.
