Israel eases visa Indian touristsIn a bid to encourage more Indians to visit Israel, Tel Aviv has simplified its visa application norms for visitors from the subcontinent.

 

The relaxed visa rules involve less documentation for Indians who have availed of visas of Schengen countries, the US, Canada, Australia or Israel and completed their travel to these countries, an Israeli consulate statement said today.

 

“This is an initiative we have been working very closely with interior ministry and foreign ministry to introduce in India and I am happy to see this change for the Indian travellers who wish to travel to Israel,” Israeli tourism ministry India director Hassan Madah said.

 

He said, easing the visa requirements will not only make the application process faster, it will also increase the number of tourists to Israel as well.

 

“We are also working on an express service with VFS, which will be introduced soon. In addition to this, we are working towards e-visa processing as well as easing the group visa process,” he added.

 

There has been a 31 per cent increase in tourist arrivals in Israel from India with 55,000 Indians travelling to the holy country from this year till November.
