Israel reduces visa fee for Indian tourists

Published on : Thursday, May 31, 2018

Hassan Madah - Director, Israel Ministry of Tourism, India and PhilippinesIsrael has reduced its visa fee to INR 1,100 from its previous INR 1,700 charge for Indian citizens.  VFS Global currently offers visa processing services for Israeli visas in the cities of Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru.

 

 

The visa centres will soon open in Hyderabad and Kolkata to service the residents in these cities, who will not be required to send their documents to the Consulates in Mumbai and Bengaluru or the Embassy in New Delhi.

 

 

The revised application fee is on the B2 visa category, where a visit to Israel is for purposes including business, meeting or conference or tourism.

 

 

Commenting on the initiatives, Mr. Hassan Madah, Director, Israel Ministry of Tourism – India & Philippines said that they are trying to encourage more people to choose Israel as a holiday destination and boost inbound numbers from India.

 

 

In February this year, Fast Track visa processing was introduced through VFS Global. In December last year, relaxed visa documentation was brought in for applicants who have availed visas of Schengen countries, US, Canada, Australia or Israel and have completed their travel to these countries. In September 2017, the Ministry introduced one-year multiple entry visas for business travellers to Israel. Steps are being taken towards bringing more changes to make the process faster and easier for Indian travellers to visit Israel.
