While few things can feel more welcoming than arriving in a country where visas are not required, the next best thing is arriving in a place where the visa is a mere formality. As per India’s Ministry of External Affairs, there are as many as 40 countries that will give Indian travellers a visa on arrival. Whether you’re looking for an island getaway, a wildlife safari, hidden lagoons or stunning architecture, these destinations that offer visas on arrival for Indians have you covered.
Note: Check the Covid-related restrictions and rules for a country before you book those tickets. Visa-on-arrival unfortunately doesn’t mean freedom from all pre-travel processes. Some countries may require you to apply for a pre-visa online before you travel, and there will still be specific documents required to get your visa on arrival. Make sure you have enough empty pages in your passport, some countries mark your visa on your passport as a stamp or sticker when you arrive, and it may even take up a whole page.
